Kiss me, shove me, break me
Turn these shades to black & blue,
Peel back this skin, make it new
Love me, hate me, infuriate me
Scream a little louder; I can't hear you,
Hit a little harder; give me fresh wounds
Control me, miss me, blame me
Cut out my heart, keep it, store it
But it's still beating; now just ignore it
Make me, shake me, erase me
Just burn the letters, air out the smoke
Every last goodbye, we never wrote
Deceive me, degrade me, obliterate me
so I can forgive you, regret you, forget you.
