lyrics

Your ghost was in the water,
I saw her from the shore.
I wondered what you taught her?
She was beautiful before.
And who's been kept a captive?
And who's been keeping score?
Our hate becomes a flower,
our dream becomes a chore.

I tell you I'm not scared, but I'm frightened through and through.
I've really never been prepared for you.

You come to me in crisis,
I come to you in rage.
We'll pay each other's prices
and waltz across the stage,
and if you don't pull my mask off
I won't say your age.
Are we already beyond saving?
It gets hard for me to gauge.

I tell you I'm not scared, but I'm frightened through and through.
I've really never been prepared for you.

I could call myself defeated,
but it would not matter much.
You were all I thought I needed
'til I was trampled by your touch.
And if I'm not fit to find you,
maybe I'd be better off
than to walk one step behind you
and to come each time you cough.

I tell you I'm not scared, but I'm frightened through and through.
I've really never been prepared for you.
