this heart is tired and old
this heart is charcoal and cold
this heart throws the white flag when it gets hard, you know
i give up i give in to the whole of your skin
i give up i give in when you let go i'll give in
i give up i give in am i doing this again
we cannot go back
this heart's been sleeping for miles
this heart can't wait to see you
this heart doesn't want to convince you that
this heart will not collapse
what are you doing in these chambers
why are you sleeping in my ventricles
