Your arms around me
I am weeping
And you put your hands around my throat
Your love surrounds me
I am weeping
And you hold me close, you won't let me go

Are you trying to be
The death of me?

(x a few)

Your words rape me
I am sleeping
And all your bitterness is gone
Your smile cuts me
I am sleeping
But I'm still having nightmares

Are you trying to be
The death of me?
(x a few)

And every time
I think that I've woken up
You pull me back
Into the nightmare
Every time
I think I'm waking up
You pull me back
I don't belong there

Are you trying to be
The death of me?
(x a few)

(All cuts out except guitar)
You destroy me
I am dying
And yet your love suffocates me
You release me
I am dying
But you force me back to life

(all back in)

Are you trying to be
The death
Of everything that's in me?

(four snare beats)

And every time
I think that I've woken up
You pull me back
Into the nightmare
Every time
I think I'm waking up
You pull me back
I don't belong there
(to end)
