little black heart of mine
watch you slip on this face for the last time
a dark red hush is coming
i was at a crucial loss
when my true love had climbed out
with any strong emotional pull, it leaves

 bad dreams, and sending it home
 where my beliefs are all letting go

i grew up in a shallow town
with a dagger swimming around
in language laced with nevers
i was pushed until we fought
in relationships it got lost
divide the missing pieces, all while

 it's helping me, to have no control
 the boundaries, extinguish my soul

 laundry of ill memories
 i can feel the background rebuilding
