Anyway

lyrics

Helpless princess
Delicate flower, swiftly unfurled
Flaunt your weakness
Like I have the power to shatter your world
It's a hard fight to do right
As your favorite villain

I see, baby
I'm in at zero counted with you
Impossibly
I'm also your hero, incumbent to do
All your biddings and worse things
Your crimes and your penance
Marking without tears the long years
Of your lifetime sentence

I could tell myself I need you
Starve myself to feed you
Find new ways to stay
I could chain myself to trying
But for all my dying
We'd lose each other anyway

You know it's so
Single intention for every move
You strike new low
And I'll never mention, but yeah I could prove
What went down here on Cape Fear
In Southern Amnesia
How all my snow drifts in night shifts
Weren't quite anesthesia

I could tell myself I need you
Starve myself to feed you
Find new ways to stay
I could chain myself to trying
But for all my dying
We'd lose each other anyway

This time I'm just gonna say no
Find out what comes after I just let go
Your bouquet of lilies and lies
Sublime, picture me in Bourdieu
Sky above me star streaked like a Van Gough
And the future back in my eyes

I could tell myself I need you
Starve myself to feed you
Find new ways to stay
I could chain myself to trying
But for all my dying
We'd lose each other anyway

I could tell myself I need you
Starve myself to feed you
Find new ways to stay
I could chain myself to trying
But for all my dying
We'd lose each other anyway
We'd lose each other anyway
We'd lose each other anyway
