lyrics

Dirtied my black jeans again
Under the screaming tree
My eyes all full of branches and starlight
My head thrown back in ecstasy
And you, you dirtied my jacket
And brought me to my knees
In the night we clung to each other
For warmth and for company

We stayed awake till 8 AM
Breathing the night air again
Amazed we didn’t move our hands
I’m feeling almost like a friend

But you only wanted my body
When you need to be heard
If you only wanted my body
Why’d you let me talk for so long?

How many bricks must I lay down
Before a wall will form around
And I will find myself like you
Surrounded by my own hard truths
A fortress built of trauma
Are we now the same?
I don’t know how I got here
Don’t think you’re not to blame

You only wanted my body
When I needed to be heard
If you only wanted my body
Why’d you let me talk?
