THIS IS THE BEGINNING OF A SONG

ABOUT THE END OF OUR LVIES

HONEY DON'T GET ME WRONG WHEN I SAY

I HOPE YOU DIE SOON

I HOPE YOU LIVE HARD

I HOPE IT'S DARK NOW IN YOUR ROOM

I HOPE YOUR HEART BECOMES STONE

I HOPE IT'S HEAVY

I HOPE IT FEELS LIKE YOU DIED AND THEN YOU DO

 

IF I CAN'T HAVE YOU

I DON'T WANT ANYONE ELSE TO

 

ROBOT WORKS GOOD TODAY

YOU CAN SELF-MEDICATE

YOU CAN SWIM THE SEA WITHOUT THE WAVES

I CAN'T BELIEVE YOUR SILVER EYELASHES

I CAN'T BELIEVE HOW THE MERMAID FADES

I KNOW YOU HIDE YOUR LOVE AWAY

SOMEWHERE INSIDE YOUR PERFECT BODY

 

YOU'RE NOT ALIVE, YOU'RE JUST ALONE

I HOPE YOU DIE SLOW

ON SHINY SLOW

ON SHINY LIES HE MADE YOU BELIEVE

AND THEN HE LEAVES, HE LEAVES, HE LEAVES 

AND YOU HAVE NOTHING LEFT

EXCEPT TO COME BACK TO ME

 

DO YOU FEEL ANYTHING

DO YOU FEEL ANYTHING YET?

I ONLY WANT MY HANDS AROUND YOUR NECK

YOUR SWEET, SWEET BREATH

WHEN YOU DRINK ALL NIGHT

AND SLEEP LIKE THE DEAD

 

I HOPE I DIE SOON

I'M SO YOUNG IT WOULDN'T HUTY

AND YOU'RE JUST WAITING LIKE A LANDMARK TO GET SAVED

AND MY HEART'S ALREADY STOPPED BEATING

AND I'VE LOVED YOU IN THE MOST PATHETIC WAYS

 

IF I CAN'T HAVE YOU

I DON'T WANT ANYONE ELSE TO
