Verse 1

I need to bury you for a little while now.

I promise I'll visit every single day.

I'll bring you flowers, brush off the leaves,

But then I'll again be on my way.

Chorus

Cause you'd only hurt your fingers if you clutch the pieces of broken glass.

And I'd only hurt myself if I talk to you, cause it fuels my longing for us.

I know I won't just stop loving you this way, or rid my heart of the dent.

But it'd bury you for a little while; keep you dormant for just a moment.

Verse 2

I need to bury you for a little while now,

Cause I need to mourn the end.

Maybe I'll find a way not to resurrect you

And learn to be simply friends.

Chorus

Cause you'd only hurt your fingers if you clutch the pieces of broken glass.

And I'd only hurt myself if I talk to you, cause it fuels my longing for us.

I know I won't just stop loving you this way, or rid my heart of the dent.

But it'd bury you for a little while; keep you dormant for just a moment.

Bridge

I'll bury you alive,

And I'll myself be living dead.

Cause I can't bury

The memories that come back in

White, purple, black and red.

Chorus

And you'd only hurt your fingers if you clutch the pieces of broken glass.

And I'd only hurt myself if I talk to you, cause it fuels my longing for us.

I know I won't just stop loving you this way, or rid my heart of the dent.

But it'd bury you for a little while; keep you dormant for just a moment.
