lyrics

you stand forever over me
without kindness or concern
I know I must look desperate here
with nothing left to burn
and still you stare me down
with eyes like hard blue stones
you always find me when I’m trying to be alone

so I welcome you inside with all my weaknesses revealed
you’ll notice I still wear the bandage even though the wound has healed
and I will always let you in as if I didn’t have a choice
even though I know you’re lying it’s still good to hear your voice
it’s so good to hear your voice
