Lyrics

Your Poet Bleeding

I’m the devil in your diary
the stranger in your bed
that slow and steady climax
in the fiction that you've read
where your mother was a dancer
your daddy left you dead
but tonight

Have a cigarette for mercy
a shot of absolution
put your hands against the wall
for the midnight execution
where the bullet penetrates the skin
they tell me that's where love begins tonight
for your poet bleeding

I don't know much
I know something
mountains crumble baby
empires fall
I lost your touch
I know one thing
I’ll take tonight
over nothing at all

We’re waiting for the footsteps
on this floor of broken glass
we've bloodied every hallway
where the angels used to pass
when the morning slips out of the night
its naked truth and its ugly light revealed
for your poet bleeding

I’m the devil in your diary
the stranger in your bed
