lyrics

she had me drowning in her smile from the start
that girl subdued every part of me
she burned ignition to my gasoline heart
but we never got far did we

things were so simple when we drove to the lake
before a costly mistake to come
she brought her love and trust with daggers and knives
and i ignored any call to run

and then she cut me open
and left me broken into pieces
i needed faith and healing
but she just took the pieces that she needed

she took me hostage
and she put me underground
no one could hear me make a sound now
she took me hostage
and she made sure to leave a mark
she did her worst work in the dark now

she traced her finger down the line of my jaw
her scent and touch gave me a feeling, real and raw
her heart became a barrier
my loudest screams could never reach her

she took me hostage
and she put me underground
no one could hear me make a sound now
she took me hostage
and there were no words i could say
to ever take her pain away

ripping each of your thorns out to break free
and i'm still taking all the damage and the fire with me
is this what you would tell your diary while i lay broke?
