HEARTBREAK TASTES JUST LIKE STEEL

How do you feel? I designed myself to love you more, I scratch your skin, Iím waiting outside to tell you youíre lovely.
I crawl to your house and I nail myself to your door with my arms outspread, so you can see that I love you more.
I slit my wrists with porcelain and I tear my throat to shreds so you would notice me, finally, finally.
I swallow my promise to never taste this again, Iím laughing as I bleed to death, as I bleed to death, as I bleed to death

Hold out. Itís such a waste to say that you need me more, when you really donít at all.
Itís the iron taste of blood in my mouth from biting my tongue for way too long.

Smiling as I raise my head and softly ask how was your day and Iíll sleep on the couch at night, Iíll even stay out of your way, Iíll keep you safe when you are not, Iíll keep you warm when you are cold, Iíll wake you up at 2 am just to tell you that I care.
I find solace in the curves of your hips, I think youíre beautiful even though you donít need me, even though you donít need me at all, even though you donít, even though you donít need me at all.

Thinking back at what has been, love struck, snow blind, it seemed all right at the time, Iíve got blackened eyes from crying all night for you.
Question the reasons behind my convictions, Iím killing myself even though I know what not to do, its just too much trouble you know.
Heartbreak tastes just like steel. Heartbreak tastes just like steel. Heartbreak tastes just like steel.  
Marry me! Under the stars with a broken needle as my ring to you and a cat carved inside your arm as your ring to me

Hold out. Itís such a waste to say that you need me more, when you really donít at all.
Itís the iron taste of blood in my mouth from biting my tongue for way too long.

Smiling as I raise my head and softly ask how was your day and Iíll sleep on the couch at night, Iíll even stay out of your way, Iíll keep you safe when you are not, Iíll keep you warm when you are cold, Iíll wake you up at 2 am just to tell you that I care.
I find solace in the curves of your hips, I think youíre beautiful even though you donít need me, even though you donít need me at all, even though you donít, even though you donít need me at all.
