lyrics

You left your t-shirt in my bathroom
Did you know how I would feel?
To find the pieces of our old home
All our old words reappear

I got a new tattoo, and baby so do you

Look what I gave your heart
Each line a work of art
My crime’s a perfect scar
In a place without grace tearing us apart

Oh, you know I told you every—
Everything I wanted to
I showed you pictures of my family
Told you secrets, some are true

I have a midnight lie, and baby, so do you

Look what I gave your heart
Each line a work of art
My crime’s a perfect scar
In a place without grace tearing us apart

Has it faded in your memory, every scene we came to write?
Does it seep into your blood stream, making movies in your mind?

Your heart is tender like my arm is
Where my skin is red as wine
I’m seeing all the days I hurt you
In the drawing I designed

I’m tracing every line, Waiting for blood to dry

Look what I gave your heart
Each line a work of art
My crime’s a perfect scar
In a place without grace tearing us apart
