Lyrics

Well I bled blue blood from my back last night
I was alone
Aubergine sheets on my bed now
Oh no
And your blue eyes lie
Just like an atlas
In those sockets
Yeah your blue eyes cry
Mapwater
When your'e sorry
Oh so sorry
Oh no

You with the nape that holds my gaze
You with the tongue that speaks my name
You with the arms that keep me at length
You with the heart that won't show its face

And jesus sucks the mud out of your soul
But the flame in your eye, it is blue and cold
And you risked your wrist to save my life
And I should have kissed you that night
But it ain't right
Oh no
It ain't right

And absence makes my heart grow hollow
Absence makes my heart grow hollow
Make me into an egg without yolk,
Make me into an egg without yolk
Absence makes my heart grow hollow
Absence makes my heart grow hollow
Make me into an egg without yolk
You make me into an egg without yolk

I was unborn when I was younger
I was unborn when I was younger
But I was rebuilt when you spoke
I awoke when you spoke
You said, "there's always a reason for leaving,
there's always a reason to stay
I know exactly why I'm leaving: I just can't stay."
And I say, "I'll give you my whole summer
when you unfurl your fingers.
I would be lying if I said you had nothing
to do with me;
you're to blame for my being this way."

You with the nape that holds my gaze
You with the tongue that speaks my name
You with the arms that keep me at length
You with the heart that won't show its face
