lyrics

It moves in the dark
Covering your eyes
And buried under your clothes
And she can’t see it
As she moves through the light
Carrying the only thing
That’s pure in the world
But nothing’s going to change
And nothing’s going to be as it was
It took the only one who loves you
For the man that you are
And the man you’ll become

But when will it get what it wants
Did it want a broken heart
Or the end before the start?
Its claws won’t let go
And the more you fight
Deeper they cut into your skin
Until every muscle aches
And reason is bruised
You try to explain
But where to begin?
The heart is a funny thing
And maybe it’s just here for a laugh
And your only excuse
Is that you told a bad joke
And can’t take it back

But when will it get what it wants
Did it want a broken heart
Or the end before the start?
And when you open your eyes
Long enough to apologize
For smothering the spark

It moves in the dark
Hiding in the shadows
Cast by light that escapes
Through every crack
And every tear at the seams
You’re dying to mend
Without the strength it’ll take
But nothing’s going to change
And nothing’s going to be as it was
It took the only one who loves you
For the man that you are
And the man you’ll become
