Slick listening and heartburn heart-to-hearts,
Anyone can pretend to care.
Destroying under the influence.
Tell me I am your all-of-it,
Play your favorite songs,
To listen to the lyrics.
Invite me into your everything.
I dare you.
We'll ignore your rug-burned knees
And dirty love,
And your wonderful sins
That make Heaven shutter
Hate me with the sunrise,
But love me through the night,
Because we are two empty shadows
Without the light
To wash us away.
Everything burns when you live under the truth,
Constant observation is an ache
That can only be itched
With blatant disregard.
Scorch me with your Rated-R thoughts,
Wash your mouth out with swear words and gin,
And touch me where I'd tell you not to,
If I was being dishonest.
Criminals dance under full moons,
And promise each other eternity.
Love is not so different.
