so give me hope in the darkness
that I will see the light
cause oh, they gave me such a fright
In the middle of the night, I may watch you go
There’ll be no value in the strength of walls that I have grown
There’ll be no comfort in the shade of the shadows thrown
But I’ll be yours if you’ll be mine
Stretch out my life and pick the seams out
Take what you like, but close my ears and eyes
Watch me crumble over and over.
You know your desires and mine
Wrap my flesh in ivory and in twine
For I must be well.
