about

An experiment with genre, melody, mixing, and love

For the muse

lyrics

Sh... don’t talk, I just wanna hold you, I don’t wanna love you
I already told you mentally that your body’s an illusion meant to confuse me
Baby, you’re just a placebo that could maybe
Confound and confine my mind so I might go blind to the pain
Too much, the syndrome is fighting back
So I dull down my wits and I focus on her tits
Overload my senses to overcome what I lack
She told me don’t think too much
Shoulda told me don’t blink too much *Who’s she?*
Who’s what? Nothing, no one, you don’t know me, stop asking questions, baby
All I wanna do is undress, all I wanna do is fuck *Fuck the Pain Away*
Lay you down on the mattress, you could be my little actress,
And when a new dawn rises I’ll be freer
Tell me lies, let me lie, in between your thighs,
When I close my eyes I won’t see her

A spark to replace the fire that lit up the dark
A spark to replace the fire that had burned a hole and left glowing embers in my heart

Could I get a little bit? *Closer*
I swear I’m indifferent *Closer*
You know I’m lying *Closer*
Hell, at least I’m trying *Closer to you*
Let’s pretend one more time
The memories inside that seem to reside
In a heart that’s torn, but could get warmer if I could
Just get a little bit? *Closer*
I swear I’m indifferent *Closer*
You know I’m lying *Closer*
Hell, at least I’m trying *Closer to you*
You read the words from my heart out loud,
Goddamn you’re proud,
Amazing that you know me inside out

Kissing on your ear, holding to you close
Call me and I’m here, tearing off your clothes
Do you remember that one night in December?
Standing in the rain, you called me insane
When I said I might love you? Well now that’s gone
Whatever
I’ll fuck a bunch of girls,
not to make you mad but to prove to myself
that this ache won’t last, forever
Didn’t really work
Because after she comes it’s you I wish was beside me
I say I gotta run and I’ll call and as quick as I slipped inside I’m gone
I don’t even wanna undress, all I wanna do is *Fuck - this shit sounds so typical*
Cuddle on your couch and watch TV,
Act like our friendship isn’t loveless
Sleep, and maybe when I wake the dream I had will be real
And what’s real right now won’t be fake

Just this once - *No sir*
I just wanna hold you - *No sir*
Nobody’s gonna see - *No sir*
I miss you - *No sir*

Do you remember that one night in December?
Standing in the rain, you called me insane
when I said I might love you?
Even when you denied it and told me stop playing,
said we’d set ourselves up for some dark days
Later in the night you said the same thing
