Making you an offer,
still runs great,
looking for a brand new start:
A special, one time deal
on a preowned heart.
Making you an offer,
Oh, you’re in my blood like holy wine
You taste so bitter and you taste so sweet
Oh, I could drink a case of you,
I could drink a case of you, darling
And still be on my feet
She’s twenty years of strangers looking into each other’s eyes;
she’s a dying breed.
Next time I’ll be braver,
I’ll be my own savior
the thunder calls for me.
Next time I’ll be braver
I’ll be my own savior—
Standing on my own
and rattle my bones,
You turn me over and over
‘till I can’t control myself.
Make me a liar,
one big disaster—
You make my heart beat faster.
well i’d like to think i’m the mess you’d wear with pride, like some empty dress on the bed you’ve layed out for tonight.
and you were right outside, by your doorstep in a worn out suit and tie.
i’ll wait for you to come down—
where you’ll find me,
where we’ll shine.
Feeling broken, barely holding on
But there’s just something so strong—somewhere inside me
And I am down, but I’ll get up again
Don’t count me out just yet.
I’ve been brought down to my knees
And I’ve been pushed way past the point of breaking, but I can take it
I’ll be back,
back on my feet.
This is far from over.
I am far from over.
You haven’t seen the last of me.
so I’ve built a wooden heart inside this iron ship,
to sail these blood red seas and find your coasts.
don’t let these waves wash away your hopes
this war-ship is sinking, and I still believe in anchors
pulling fist fulls of rotten wood from my heart, I still believe in saviors
but I know that we are all made out of shipwrecks, every single board
washed and bound like crooked teeth on these rocky shores
so come on and let’s wash each other with tears of joy and tears of grief
and fold our lives like crashing waves and run up on this beach
come on and sew us together, tattered rags stained forever
we only have what we remember.
Take me by the tongue
And I’ll know you
Kiss me ‘til you’re drunk
And I’ll show you—
I don’t need to try to
Look into my eyes and
I’ll own you
i’m like oh kemosabe,
your body is my hobby
we’re freakin’, this ain’t cheatin’
as long as we tell nobody
—tell your girls you’re leaving,
i’ll meet you in the lobby
i’m so cold, yeah you that hot toddy—
swear i’d never fall in love
