lyrics

i've been holding my breath since you walked in. my lungs were burning with air then they caved in. to my chest bony ribs i confess. i'm a martyr for you. with my hands i will construct you. with my might i will protect you. i'll build the walls. i'll lay the floors and hang the doors. i will call you home. in your life you will forget me. in your mind you will omit me. to be the one. i'll do what i can just to hold your hand. i will be your man. i will lay you down. and cauterize your wounds. cauterize. you caught my eye. in due time. we will create a light. to shine on. through the coldest winter nights. when darkness comes. from shade to dark. you'll flip the spark til embers glow. in our eyes. we will reflect the light. with our legs we'll walk til we lose all sight. when morning comes. from dark to bright we'll gain our sight and move along. i will lay you down. and cauterize your wounds. cauterize. you caught my eye. hold my breath and fill my lungs. til the blood rushes back to my hands and toes
