On The Floor

I’m trying
But still I close my eyes
The dreaming
Bringing his face to mine
 
Lock the door
 
The constant buzzing
All through the night
The fighting
Rips me all up inside
 
On the floor
 
I pace, I run my mouth
I pray and wait
I cross out his name on the page
 
(How long ’til) this washes away?
(How long ’til) my body is safe?
(How long ’til) I walk in the light?
(How long ’til) this heart isn’t mine?
 
The rise and fall
Of his chest on me
I’m trying
But still it’s all I see
 
The violent
Current of energy
I hide it
Away and underneath
 
Lock the door
 
I shake, I promise everyday
To change
I cross out his name on the page
 
(How long ’til) this washes away?
(How long ’til) my body is safe?
(How long ’til) I walk in the light?
(How long ’til) this heart isn’t mine?
 
Take this wildness away
 
I’m trying
But still I close my eyes
The dreaming
Bringing his face to mine
 
Out the door
 
I pace, I run my mouth
I pray to change
I cross out his name on the page
 
(How long ’til) this washes away?
(How long ’til) my body is safe?
(How long ’til) this heart isn’t mine?
 
I just want him in my arms
I just want him in my arms
 
Thanks!
