lyrics

I bet you've never met someone else like me
The wolves came knocking and I
I became the beast
There is no lie
No lie inside my fire
So cut the ties I'm not your prize

Girls are not just tiny things with tiny hands and broken strings
Drink from the river that runs between my lungs and taste it like a prayer
Carve your name into my bones and speak of how I wanted love
How I longed to kiss and break, your violent heart.

I close my eyes and I try to swear
Out of the street and...

I close my eyes and I try to steer
Out of the street and into the forest
You're still a joke at 23
It no longer bothers me

Shape me into what you want
Just cut away
"You're better this way"
No one said love worked like this
Burn to a crisp to keep him warm
Carve your name into my heart and tell me how I wanted this
But you never knew
The beast that grew
Inside my lungs

I am the sharp the wicked the ghastly
There is no lie inside my fire
Like a cry like a riot
I won't burn to keep you warm
