lyrics

I sleep easy, with your notch upon my bed
Cause in my dreams, the violence that keeps me awake is dead

The devil's in the details of these wallflowers
Never noticed but always gazing upon my life
Fade to blackness, numb the senses
My body is shaking and my head is pounding

Everyday I try to love you less

Loathing made a home in(side) my bones and now as they break I realise that I've fallen in love with a ghost
And maybe that's why she's haunting me tonight, as her silhouette takes shape in the distant moonlight
Tracing her body with my trembling hands she begins to fall away like an hourglass draining sand
And even though the moments are fleetingly passing us by
All I ever wanted was the chance to say goodbye

I sleep easy, with your notch upon my bed
Cause in my dreams, the violence that kept me awake is dead

Once loving hands take a hold
Choking me with their grip
Not enough to notice
Just enough for me to slip

I'll never learn to love myself
I'll never learn to love again
I'll never learn love

Leave me here to hang just like a broken clock
Constantly reminded of a moment time forgot
Wearing these scars on my skin from your comfort
Now I'm drowning in the afterthought

Leave me here to hang just like a broken clock
Constantly reminded of a moment time forgot
Wearing these scars on my skin
And the ache in my chest
Knowing I was never good enough

Letting go, of ghosts from my broken bones
Fading to blackness and numbing the senses
Watching the sands slipping through my hands

Letting go, of ghosts from my broken bones
Scars on my skin and the ache in my chest
Everyday I love you less

I'll never love myself
I'll never love again
I'll never learn love
