FLOODGATES

I wrote you a letter

crumbled up that loose leaf paper

Never had the balls to send it off
but how would you reply?

Cause I don’t even know you

It’s been over a year and I feel like I’m supposed to

by now you think I would’ve learned
that I can’t help myself


Cause recently, I’ve been circling your name

on the back page of a magazine

If you could only see

If you could only see what’s on the inside
of my mind



A piece of me wants only you

to give me a sign
I can’t be trained to love another one

It’s your body disguised

A piece of me wants you to know

that I wish you were mine, honey

I’ll pull you underneath the waves

at the gate between you and I


Should I trade all my days
for a seldom spark?

(Setting your words on fire)

You should’ve warned me
you’re not for the faint of heart

(Don’t come any closer
)
Secretly, we’re a train wreck

So many ghosts that to count would be pointless
but 
when we fuck
it’s explosive

Cover each other in flames




A piece of me wants only you

to give me a sign
I can’t be trained to love another one

It’s your body disguised

A piece of me wants you to know

that I wish you were mine, honey

I’ll pull you underneath the waves

at the gate between you and I

Oh

 

I’ll pull you from the water
(
reach out, reach out, reach out
)
Just a little but farther

(reach out, reach out, reach out
)
If not we'll both go under so
(reach out, reach out, reach out)
but you're holding on to another
(reach out, reach out, reach out)



A piece of me wants only you

to give me a sign
I can’t be trained to love another one

It’s your body disguised

A piece of me wants you to know

that I wish you were mine, honey

I’ll pull you underneath the waves

at the gate between you and I

No
