I'll be the corpse in your bathtub
I'll be as deaf as a post
Whisper what you feel
To You
Gently smiling like a newborn
My badly strung declaration
You'll spend the end of your days
Love not by degrees
Press your lips
Taste my tears
Pull the blinds
Nothings changed

Kick and strike
Holding me shaking
All of these promises
Tracing the scars
Even and cold

The hush in your voice.
The warmth of your fingers
In the eve of our lives
