you're my one
and you already have one
so that leaves me without one
lost my mind, how'm i thinking without one
i'm not
you're my one
with your eye on a blonde one
i wish i was beside one
knock some sense into my one
i'm not
you're my world
so my world is so boring
can't feel rain but it's pouring
give me my sense of touch
you're my world
honestly i'm so tired
from this job you are fired
i know that you never signed up
what the fuck

what am i doing
in a basement alone seeing your face
your name in my mouth's a sweet taste
heart heavy like a fucking brick, it can't race
your face
your face
eyes open and i can't see
all i hear is breathing
but i'm barely breathing
sick to death, you're not here
blood pumping nothing that i need
dizzy, but there's no drink
what the fuck am i doing
your face

oh no

my face may look like i don't give a fuck
but my fingers inside you felt how twisted up you are
i want scratch-and-bite-war-torn love
but i fight for this coffee-stained love
tell me why
i don't know

this is it you
you're the one, i am hit
little beat
little bruised
but it's beating for you
and as long as i can bear to beat
it beats for you
and as long as i can bear to beat
it beats for you
