lyrics

IDK

I don’t know how to love you but I do know how to kill you.
I know how far to dig to reach the chambers of your heart.
I don’t know how to love you but I know what it would look like
If I cut you open, split you wide, and kissed your sweetest parts.

I don’t know how to trust you, but I do know how to hurt you
Just where your spine’s the weakest, and how to blind your eyes.
I don’t know how to trust you, but I know what you can stomach
And when all else fails, I know just how to get my favorite rise.

I know – the things I know you wish I didn’t
I know – the things I know could kill.
I know the secret things that make you tick and make you sick
And make you wish that time was standing very still.

I don’t know how to talk to you, but I know how to break you
To make you know there’s no one, no where, nothing else but me.
I don’t know how to talk to you, but I know how to trap you,
But if you're good, I swear I'll almost always set you free.
