lyrics

This is where you left me hiding
under two year’s worth of skin and grief
It doesn’t look like much to me
anymore but once I would have
sworn it looked like God to me
all wrapped up in holy sheets

I know more than I wanted to know
to tell you the truth
I wish I’d never fallen in love
with you

This is where you kept me waiting
‘till you found a cleaner place to sleep
beyond the jokes you made of me
This is how you say you’re sorry
mouthing nonsense on your knees
but you aren’t smiling up at me

I know more than I wanted to know
to tell you the truth
I wish I’d never fallen in love
with you
