Tell me again how I ruin your life —
A tall tale told many times in my life.
Sing me the lullaby of my youth,
My soulful symphony,
My undying truth.
Tell me how my bones melt with venom —
How people run from where I’m from
So I don’t get ‘em.
Notice me, in all my glory —
How I smile when I cry
With unbridled fury.
Then hug me and hold me
And tell me it’s fine.
Just let it go, just like the last time.
Let the cycle continue week after week,
Until we’re both weak with the poison we speak.
