Favorite Quote:
"To these the past hath its phantoms,
More real than solid earth;
And to these death does not mean decay,
But only another birth"
- Isabella Banks


Run, run away,
Cause it’s dark inside

And the monsters wanna
Eat your heart
Tonight

Run, run away,
Cause I’ll pull in,

Roaring over thunder and the rain.

Beneath your skin
What is lurking far from all the pain?


What don’t you know?
What can I tell you?
That won’t destroy our love?

Why I am broken,
Beyond repair?

No one ever cared about me?
No, that’s not it.
No! That’s not it!

No, it’s my own fault
for welcoming death
Right in,

Ignore the tears,
Don’t release any comfort for me!

 

Hide under the sheets!
Don’t you look at me!

Cause all I want to do is be with you!

Don’t let me
Find your weakness!

(No-oh-oh

No, oh-oh.)

Cause I’ll pull you in,
Under my spell

(Underneath the smoking ways of trust.)

Dont’ let me sin,
Onto you oh
Oh gracious me!
I don’t want to hurt you, deep down inside!
Let the waves carry me off my feet,
Falling out of touch,
And into waves of dust,

I don’t want to hurt
you.

Sometimes I feel like my faults and sadness will hurt the people I love, so I wrote this song to express that.
