lyrics

She said can I come over?
She's sitting in my driveway.
I didn't want her this time,
I didn't want this my way.
I wanted yours instead.
Whatever makes you happy.
I'll fucking go to bed,
I can hear your friends laughing
and they are laughing at me,
don't lie to me I know it.
They fucking wanna break me,
the way their eyes look show it.
and I will probably let them,
and they'll get what they want.
and I will probably help them,
they will get what they want.

He's lying on my bed,
I guess he needs his sleep.
I think you lost all of my secrets I couldn't speak.
and I keep writing poems. Poems I'll never keep.
and she keeps knocking on my door when all I want to do is sleep.
She hasn't slept for days.
I fucking wonder why.
She hasn't slept around.
She left to go get high.
She said she hates her friends 'cause they call her all night.
She's turning off her phone, she's going out tonight.

but the notches of your spine are looking sharp tonight.
and you think that I won't notice if you mouth the words this time.
but I won't pull my punches, I'll use my words to knock your teeth out
one by one and I'll keep count of all of them. Oh, I'll count all of them.

and could you hold your tears back just or another minute.
She said she wants her gift back, she said she thought I'd get it.
You say you're friends?
Well what's a friend without a secret you'll pretend doesn't matter?
but I have friends, oh I have friends and they all matter
and they all care about me.
She don't know what that's like.
She says they wanna fight me.
I won't come home tonight.
But now the table's turned, because I won't fight back.
I will just let them hurt me until the world goes black.
I think I know what's coming, and I just don't care.
I wanna break my glasses, I wanna dye my hair.
So that I can go home, and they won't recognize me.
And I can't see them clearly and I won't see our eyes meet.

but the notches of your spine are looking sharp tonight.
and you think that I won't notice if you mouth the words this time.
but I won't pull my punches, I'll use my words to knock your teeth out
one by one and I'll keep count of all of them. Oh, I'll count.

But you're a gas leak and I'm a wood house so we'll both go up in flames.
you are running but you keep falling and you keep saying we're the same.
and there are so many eyes beating down on my bones.
you're walking on water with rocks in your shoes just trying to get home.
on the count of three, everybody scream
she keeps saying that she might.
But I've got friends who disagree and I've got friends who just won't buy it.
and am I boring you?
because you seem to be looking at your phone like it's gonna ring.
you could cut my tongue out of my mouth on any given night
and it would not change a thing

but the notches of your spine are looking sharp tonight.
and you think that I won't notice if you mouth the words this time.
but I won't pull my punches, I'll use my words to knock your teeth out
one by one and I'll keep count of all of them. Oh, I'll count all of them.
