lyrics

The Blessing / The Curse

Tie the tourniquet tight;
bathe my eyes in angel light.
I never believed a word I said was true;
I was abusing language to have power over you.
And I know I'm the devil, I know I'm a mess;
but I'm not a broken record, I learn my lessons fast.

Push that feeling down—
you'll scare them all off if you let it out.
But I don't want to not have anything to say.
Nothing in my body's telling me this is ok,
so I will find the part of you that I can love;
my blessing and my curse, I am what you are made of.

She painted me white,
changed my bandages and stayed the night.
And I am here to learn all that she has to teach;
I will swim towards her lighthouse, always just out of reach.
After all I wanted nothing if not love:
the blessing and the curse I can't stop dreaming of…
