Here is a heart
Here is a heart
I made it for you so take it
Battered and braised
Grilled and saut??ed
Just how you like it
Like it
You know I live to fill you up

Blood of my blood
Dripping with love
I bring you a thing you need most
Silent between supplies and machines
I hang in the corners like a ghost
You know I live to be seen through

No better way that I can see to spend all the time
While you're asleep
When holding your hands inside of mine
Mmm
I wanna be here and nowhere else
Rationing off bits of myself so I can crumble at your side

Sleep like the dead through the noise in your head
Wile monitors click and whirr and glow
I'm with you all day and I still would stay tomorrow and onward
Just this close
You know I live to keep you safe
Oh

No better way that I can see to spend all the time
While you're asleep
When holding your hands inside of mine
Mmm
I wanna be here and nowhere else
Rationing off bits of myself so I can crumble at your side

I can't explain it but I have to try
If you evaporate the seas will rise 'til they devour the sky

Here is a heart
Here is a heart
I made it for you so take it
Battered and braised
Grilled and saut??ed
Just how you like it
Like it

No better way that I can see to spend all the time
While you're asleep
When holding your hands inside of mine
Mmm
I wanna be here and nowhere else
Rationing off bits of myself so I can crumble at your side
