if I was less like the sea and loving you was less like a storm maybe neither of us would be drowning

want

if I was less like the sea and loving you was less like a storm

then maybe neither of us

would be drowning

(or maybe I'm the only one who can’t breathe)

if looking at you felt less like you leaving

and you leaving felt less like my heart breaking

(every time, every time)

then maybe neither of us

would hurt like we do

if my nights were softer and sweeter

would you sleep more soundly

by my side?

yes--yes--

but my dreams are only red and metal and loud

(every night, every night, every night)

if you could know--

oh love if you could know--

the colours I feel

when you touch me--

no, no, I can't be certain--

would you step back for the intensity?

you only ever want me to breathe you in pastels and grayscale

tell me you love me

(I love you, I love you)

but if I wasn't me

would you want me?

if i wasn't me would you want me?

(I love you, I love you)
