Only wanted
You to hold my hand
Knew you were on your way
So I changed my sheets
Up the stairs
Through the door
Gave you eyes
Sat on the floor
No control over what I do
Curtains shut
Pulled me onto you
At my door
What’d you come here for
At seventeen
You take all you can

30 years later
Those first times they fucked me up
Secrecy and shame 
Was the time of the world - no one to blame
Deal with the devil
Mercy of the universe
Never “the right way”
Swipe swipe
Refresh refresh refresh

Open the door

Happy for you and your husband
There you are with your beautiful husband
Got a life you love - got a man
Want the things you got - don’t think I can
Trauma -started off as trauma
Then became addiction
Then became my norm
I want your life but I’m so damn worn
I never change - never change
I’m in the gutter - in the drain
With my secrets - my alleys - my deep dark valleys
I manipulated them all - I sure got what I wanted
They left every single time…

Open the door 
Take the latch off the door

Ain’t it something how demons come of age
From silent traumas that break us
Behind that curtain’s up on stage
Skin begins to loosen, the hair begins to fall now
Shame, regrets and questions - don’t recognize ourselves at all
We tried to keep it back, but a lock and key can’t hold, now
Devoured by fears of things that we left untold now
That dirty secret - skeletons - we gotta crack open this tomb
Grind them down to tinder, burn to dust under a new moon

Only wanted you to hold my hand
Knew you were on your way so I changed my sheets
Said to stop before we were through
Cause it’s not what you want to do
Why lay down
Turn off my light
Come in my house? 
Know what I’m like
Still in the gutter but I want the stars
Forgive my scars
