another spotted gown undoes my self-medicating
she comes in with a smile but i can tell that she's faking

i know you don't believe i've got it in me
but if i hold my head, will you stay the night
i'd lose my legs for a chance to fly

well now i'm heaving dry as if my stomach could atone
but i'm not fooling her, we both know it's only for show

and i've already blown it so you're free to go
but if i keep it down, would you stay instead
i'd clip my wings just to walk again

and we'll make time for love in between our fights
i'd sell my soul if it dried your eyes
