Oh the night is young
and we're still breathing
You fill up your lungs with kerosene
I get burned in your desire
and you get left with all this doubt in me

I know the man that you deserve and need
I know the love that you keep building me
I know the man that I've become
It's not a man that you could love

Oh your violent tongue
of retribution
Oh your painted lips of deep cerise
I can't brave another night
living in a world with your beautiful misery

Why would you love someone
that pushes you away
Why would you love someone
that dresses you in shame
Why would you love someone
that fails you in the day and in the night
There's nothing left for you and I
