Bottle in your palm, scars on your arm
You will always pull away from others and
turn to what has never been and
never will be right for you
You don't deserve to have to rely on
bottles of booze to quiet the pain
You don't deserve to have to rely on scars on your arms
to prove or say anything
because words speak just the same
Bottle in your plam, scars on your arm
turn away from the pain
and towards me
