The Narcissist Saga part three

Sleeves

I get stuck in my head,

I get stuck in my head, letting my brain replay all the bad memories

I get stuck in my head, letting my brain replay all the bad memories and never will be's

There's a hole in your "I love you's"

There's a hole in your "I love you's" as soon as my smile is blurred.

There's razor blades on your fingertips

There's razor blades on your fingertips when my cheeks become waterfalls.

So you want me when it's easy

So you want me when it's easy, and like a drought, you dry my happiness.

Then when it's gone,

Then when it's gone, you're gone.

I'm left with the grain of salt

I'm left with the grain of salt that you convinced me was sugar.

God, let me find the bottom of that bottle,

God, let me find the bottom of that bottle, because Jack was always better to me

God, let me find the bottom of that bottle, because Jack was always better to me than you ever could be.

I make it easy, with my heart on my sleeve.

So you bring around your scissors

So you bring around your scissors and keep all my sleeves in your junk drawer.

So you bring around your scissors and keep all my sleeves in your junk drawer. Stitched together with what's left of my heart strings.

So you bring around your scissors and keep all my sleeves in your junk drawer. Stitched together with what's left of my heart strings. I don't care if you keep them.

as long as you don't come back.
