lyrics

i’m sorry you couldn’t fix me, i’m beyond repair
you’re so sweet, and you’ve tried so hard, i’ll love you till the day i die i swear

but how are you expected to live like that
when i take all of your love and i burn it down to ash
darlin how are you expected to live like this
when you’re shouting all your love straight into the abyss

your aesthetics and my genetics are no good match at all
you’re too beautiful and i’m too sad, the guilt i feel is too much to recall

and how am i expected to live like this
when every beautiful thing i touch turns to shit
darlin how am i expected to live like that
when all the love you’ve given me is a weight upon my back

and i’m breaking, knees shaking
heart aching, mistaking myself for somebody else
eyes open, your hope is brave
but it’s not gonna save me this time

how are we expected to live like that
when i feed you broken promises, that cut your throat like glass
how are we expected even to stay alive
when you’ve given me everything and i’m still unsatisfied

like a false god, i’ve always been a fraud
drowned in a sea of flaws, gasping for air i can feel it there
tantalizing, agonizing
the sun is rising, i think i should go to bed
please tuck me in

i’m sorry you couldn’t fix me, i’m beyond repair
but if you’ll lie with me, until i fall asleep, i won’t be so scared
