Living under the gun
the night has won
got caught on the wire
and I crossed the fire
to see myself burning for you

I wrote the song
I carried it all along
until the moment arrived
and I took the dive
to see myself drowning in you

I loved
and I set you apart from this mess
I loved
and you were my best guess
and I loved until emptiness
to see myself
I can't see myself
anymore

Living under the thumb
the night is done
these ashes of desire
I crawled through the briars
to see myself through and through

I loved
and I set you apart from this mess
I loved
and you were my best guess
and I loved until loneliness
to see myself
I wanna see myself
once more

and I took the dive

You and your love songs are killing me soul drifter.
