lyrics

She said your name

i'm afraid of your room
i'm afraid of these walls
they will know i'm a fool
still i know i will fall

in the dirt of your sheets
in the ditch of your eyes
wanna soak them in bleach
wanna set them on fire

cry myself to sleep
calling out your name
wishing you could hear me
from a thousand miles away

screaming like a siren
but your spirit couldn't hear
someone else was all up in your ear

she said your name
lies in your bed
pulls on your hair
push down your head
nothing will ever be the same
she said your name. she said your name.

i'm afraid of your shit
sittin' still on my shelf.
i'm afraid of my hands.
i'm afraid of myself.

i'm afraid of your eyes
looking at me that way.
i'm afraid i'm a fool
when i beg you to stay.

cry myself to sleep
calling out your name
wishing you could hear me
from a thousand miles away

screaming like a siren
but your spirit couldn't hear
someone else was all up in your ear

she said your name
lies in your bed
pulls on your hair
push down your head
nothing will ever be the same
she said your name. she said your name.
