I don't need you to love me
I need you to hear me out
All these words that were trapped in my heart
Are finally free from my mouth

Then you just left it to burn

When a murder of crows starts hanging 'round
Oh no, I gotta keep it on the down-low
'Cause he' buried in the back, near the tracks
By a field of cornrows
- Lyricsyou used to bring carnations and send me poetry,
you used to sing me love songs and record them on cd,
ever since you left i feel like love is a disease,
i'm dying of another broken heart.
theres no amount of morphine that will ever ease my pain,
