You take away these words and
You take away my soul, can
You ever understand how
I cannot feel whole
Unless I'm angry, sad and terrified
To reveal the way I lied
To myself that I loved you
When all I feel that might be true
I feel for a girl whose electrolyte smile
Makes me tingle, makes me feel less vile
The accidental touch that shows
That she will not be one of those
Automatic lovers who
Are energetic, unromantic to
This broken shell who once was strong
Who did not care if the day was long
Who'd break himself to be alone
I begin to despair about my tone
I'll never hold her in my arms
The realisation does me no harm
And yet…
The tears on my face are just as wet
