lyrics

I've been dating myself.
I'm up to my neck in ceremony.
I've been searching myself,
but I don't know how to look into my eyes.
What will I find?
with the curtains drawn and no light left inside.
I've been taking my time,
hoping to find a line.
But there's no more time.

I will break out of this place.
I will give myself a taste.
I'll climb back on this self-destructive track.
I will rise up from my tomb.
And I’ll undress every wound.
I'll take the chance that you might send me back,
please don't do that.

I've been fooling myself.
I could close the door and you won't find me.
I constructed my cell.
I let no one in and no one could get out.
What's it about?
Maybe it is time to let the daylight in.
I denied myself.
Tried to stay safe and warm.
But I can't be alone anymore.

I will break out of this place.
I will give myself a taste.
I'll climb back on this self-destructive track.
I will rise up from my tomb.
And I’ll undress every wound.
I'll take the chance that you might send me back,
please don't do that.

I remember the day she left,
swore I'd never let another do me like that.
Maybe I’ve lost my mind,
but I think I'll take my chance with you.

I will break out of this place.
I will give myself a taste.
I'll climb back on this self-destructive track.
I will rise up from my tomb.
And I’ll undress every wound.
I'll take the chance that you might send me back,
please don't do that.
