lyrics

Right before I fall there’s a light in your eyes
It’s really on the floor where the feeding starts
This morning, hoping that my heart wouldn’t give me away
It could have gone either way

Someone put a charm on my bedroom door
Money on the bet I would leave em alone
That morning, I was in my bed and I was at my best so maybe it was reckless
But here we are
Whispering a prayer for this moment today
It could have gone either way

It got into my head
I don’t know how it started but
I’m ready for it over again
They threw us to the beasts
I blew a kiss and said goodbye
I’m ready for it over again

Underneath his arm I am beautiful
I’ll forget the years that it was not so
I won’t allow my mind to fantasize about the violence anymore
Tonight I’m not a child anymore
And right before I fall there’s a rise in the crowd
No one can explain this celestial calm
Suspended in the ring as the lion starves
Halo round his head like the Lamb of God
Still you can love after all they have done to you
He looks at you now, but he still does not run to you

This morning, hoping that my heart wouldn’t give me away
It could have gone either way

It got into my head
I don’t know how it started but
I’m ready for it over again
They threw us to the beasts
I blew a kiss and said goodbye
I’m ready for it over again
