    I gave myself a talking to
    I made myself just follow through.
    I tried.

    I gave myself to you,
    And you?
    You gave yourself to me.

    How beautifully controlled
    How beautifully

    Control yourself and read straight through,
    you'll never find an answer through
    your doubt.

    I cleaned my mind for you.
    And you?
    You cleaned your mind for me.

    How beautifully we danced
    How beautifully

    You danced the whole god damn night through
    I watched this while I worshiped you,
    I cried.

    I shed a tear for you.
    And you?
    You shed a tear for me.

    How beautifully we wept.
    How beautifully

    We wept, we wept, 'til we made ourselves rivers of salt
    I'm trying my best to not say it's my fault.
    I will give you the things that I promised
    when I was still sober, when you were still honest.

    And I am not dying to live, I'm living to die.
    I gave aging backwards a terrible try,
    now I'm rolling real fast right over the hill.
    If the past is behind me, than why do I feel
    the things that I felt when I was just 22?
    So many memories that belong to you,
    like tattoos they will linger and will not remove.
    I am tired of watching a life I once knew.

    I'm tired....
