Things look different
In this light
I can't see you
But I know you're here somewhere
Inside
You're here inside me
With the intimacy
Of a genocide
And all the grace
Of a crucifixion
And I cherish you, because
Nobody else makes the pain feel this good
And I'd never ever want to hurt you
Or hate you
Sometimes love is such a tragedy

Don't you see
That there is such animosity
With you here, drinking wine
In the same scene I've played out a hundred times before
One word and I am broken
But still yours
Irrevocably
Unsuitably
Yours, and not for anyone else
I have done it all for you
And I'll go through life again

Just to die for you.
