I hold my breath until I turn blue

Swim across the ocean to get back to you

I slit my wrist till its bloody red

Would you love me more, if I cut my throat instead?

I dug a grave big enough for two

The black of night hides all the clues

The storm is coming the skies turn gray

Do you see what you’ve done, looking at my face?

I loved you more then you ever knew

All these purple bruises speak the truth

Dangerous love is all I have ever known

Dressed in all white your mind gets blown

You were such a liar, a phony and a cheat

I can never change my color to make you stay with me

I was green with envy, I was so insecure

I was under your spell, but nevermore
