lyrics

I wonder where he is
As I go to sleep
What my heart craves
And what my mind believes
Are such different things

Five days for my heart to get its fix
And my thoughts are up to
Their old tricks
Again and again

I can still see him sitting there
In the cold November air
As I sharpened my claws
As we were drawing straws
And he came out on top
Now I don’t know how to
Make it stop
Borrowed time is all I’ve got

And I know he is lonely
And I know he wants to leave
This place where nothing heals
Bruises can’t be concealed
Under my skin

Five days for my heart to get its fix
And my thoughts are up to
Their old tricks
Again and again

His words still burn like fire
Deep in the vault of my desire
And I wish he would go
And let me heart explode
Cause I’ve got sickness in my blood
And I don’t know how to make it stop
Borrowed time is all I’ve got
