Long Nights

thank you, for the shame and disgust

your touch left

lingering, on my skin

thank you for the long nights,

i spent carving lines on my body

thank you, for the pain i felt in my chest,

after i let the one i loved go,

because i couldn’t love myself like he loved me

for the pain that you caused

and the pain that you erased

my heart has learned forgiveness

i hope that yours does too.

Corridor

Morning comes and you’re not home

Everything is falling through

The lights are blinding

And I’m sitting there

In that stupid fucking chair

Take a stand 

Hold the knife 

Dig it deeper 

Don’t come back 

Don’t come back

I’ll be alright 

Yeah, I’ll be alright

Well, my bones ache now

This cold is tiring but not as much as you

It’s funny you think, I think of you

I have nothing left to say, that’s true

I would never waste a tear for you

Take a stand now

Hold the knife

Twist it further

Don’t come back 

Don’t come back

I’ll be alright

Yeah, I’ll be alright.


I can show you love

I look into the living room, the place where you would rest

in my head I watch you sleep

Taking in deep breathes

well the whiskey and the wine, they took the pain away

I’ts been a few months

but sometimes when the moon is out, I can hear your voice

and my heart will hurt once more

you took me for granted but I think I did so too

when I was together

when my only glue was you

I thought it was true

Now, I know it wasn’t you

I look into the living room, the place where you would rest

the heaviness I felt

feels lighter on my chest

giving me a sign, I’m forgetting what you said

That your’e falling out of love

and I could never be enough

you took me for granted but I think I did so too

the knife went through

how bad does it hurt

go on, tell me it’s true

It was never, ever you.
