The Skeletons In Your Closet

you are the darkness that hides under my bed

but I am not afraid

I will crawl into your shadow

and let you swallow me whole

I'll light your way, baby

let me guide you, hide you

from all the monsters

that live behind your eyelids

let my lips give you life

I will fill you with all the oxygen

you have been deprived of

give your hopeless lungs reprieve

I'll take away your hunger

as long as you don't strip me bare

I will make you wholesome, handsome

to hear the war stories on your skin
