What do you call a dream that you wish you didn't have?
Is it a nightmare if it made you whole?
I could never understand, but I'm not wiser than I was.
You might be the one if you can last.

Don't rely on me.

Tangled with another 'neath the covers where we work.
If I squint, her face just might be yours.
I was never like this, but take the bull by the horns.
If I don't sow myself I might burst.

And when I feel the heat, it comes as no surprise
It's often far away from your patient waiting eyes.
I wish I felt complete, but this hunger pulls me in.
Strung out on a wire, creaking hunger pulls me thin.
