like the world could live off of my love
i've got so much inside of me
but never enough
is it my intensity that gets to you?
that life is easier when you're numb
everything's simpler when you're dumb
but doesn't your heart ache for purity?
don't your lips long for softness
when throughout the day
harsh words just regress
i only ever wanted to shelter you
from the things that brought me pain
until i realized, too late
that you live off of something i can't ever give away
