Don’t Wear My Heart On Your Sleeve Like A High School Letter….

I forget when the words were only words
She knows the part that makes me nervous
In this stage we can’t get hurt
Dont try to understand me

Were too cool to be alone
But, not too crazy to get busted

I found out one life just aint enough
I need another soul to feed on
I’m the flame I can’t get burnt
Im wholly understating

I found silence in this space
An on and off again attraction
I need such amazing grace
Heaven sweep me away
(chorus)
Love dont change, dont come around here
Dont wear my heart on your sleeve
Like a high school letter
Dont strain, cuz nothing ever comes from it
And the people weve become, well
Theyve never been the people who we are

I strap on one horse and prayed for luck
I dug another hole to bleed
I know exactly how this works
I need a new feel dirty

I dont need you crowding up my space
I just want to get inside you
You cant believe the heart you save
Giving something away
(chorus)
I dreamed that the world was crumbling down
We sat on my back porch and watched it
I dreamed that the buildings all fell down
We sat on my back porch and watched it
In my head I heard the sound
Like fifteen strangers dancing

But oh how I want you to know me
Oh how I want you to know me
Oh how I wish I was somebody else, baby
Oh how I wish you could own me
