Put that finger back to my lips
Will I taste of sugar of cold wet stone?
Hope the shell will break on a paper dinner plate
Ooh, not a headstone

How long does it take to change the man?
How much sun to melt a frozen life?
How long will it take for the mask to slip
And find a way to mend this broken heart?

I’ve said too much, I’ve opened up
I’ve spilled my guts
I can’t go back, no I won’t go back
No I shouldn’t ever go back to you

Push your finger into my ribs
Am I made of honey? Am I made of bone?
Scrape your nails over my skin
To find how many layers I’m wrapped in

How long does it take to change the man?
How much sun to melt a frozen life?
How long will it take for the mask to slip
And find a way to mend this broken heart?

I’ve said too much, I’ve opened up
I’ve spilled my guts
I can’t go back, no I won’t go back
No I shouldn’t ever go back to you

Shouldn’t ever go back to you
Shouldn’t ever go back
Shouldn’t ever go back to you

Here’s the person you used to know
A strange new alchemy produces the gold
A local warming of a frozen ghost
A homeless entity returned to the host

How long does it take to change the man?
How much sun to melt a frozen life?
How long will it take for the mask to slip
And find a way to mend this broken heart?

I’ve said too much, I’ve opened up
I’ve spilled my guts
No I can’t go back, no I won’t go back
No I shouldn’t ever go back

I’ve said too much, I’ve opened up
I’ve spilled my guts
I can’t go back, no I won’t go back
No I shouldn’t ever go back to you

Shouldn’t ever go back to you
Shouldn’t ever go back
Shouldn’t ever go back
