lyrics

button

you are cute as a button
you got two black holes in the middle of your face
i can thread my envy through
god, i hate the pretty way you move
and i will hate the way you move until i am done hating you
one of these mornings, all of a sudden

i know it’s not your fault they love you so differently
than they could ever love me

all of us heart stabbers
got big old mouths full of sharp tiny knives
looking for the most beautiful muscle to bite
god, i love the crooked way they smile
and i will die a little every time they smile for a little while
until most of my fucked up soft spots have hardened

i know it’s not your fault they love you so differently
than they could ever love me

i will sew you to my left sleeve
you can be right where the heart sits with all the debris
there is no graceful way to wake up in the middle of the night
stomach in knots, wondering if they’re thinking of me
i promise to myself this too shall pass
a note under the door of my shed
saying want is a dangerous animal
it will eat us alive a couple of times
until one day it is fed
and if we're lucky we might just live through that

i know it’s not your fault they love you so differently
than they could ever love me
