lyrics

Parting my skin,
coming in with your emptiness—
I could begin to feel full,
but I'm over it now

Parting my hair with your fingers
and resting there
empty your lungs at the space
between you and my neck

I watched with the eyes of a bird
or a snake in the grass
weaving around at your feet
through paths we'd not gone down—
there was retreat before they were all found,
and my feet they were bare
and bleeding right into the ground

This is why you will never love me again
this is why you will never love me again
this is why you will never love me again
this is why you will never love me again
love me again, love me,
again, again, again

Don't believe what I said—
I have lied and been led
to the things that I've done
and the ways that I am

Don't believe what I said—
I have lied and been led
to the things that I've done
and the ways that I am

Dae dae dae dae dae dae dae dae
dae dae dae dae dae dae dae dae

This is why you will never love me again
this is why you will never love me again
this is why you will never love me again
this is why you will never love me again
love me again, love me,
again, again, again
