Lyrics

Dregs

Written By: Dunn/Cruz

Breathe deep from the sleep
on your lips
My eyes still shine
Bound in your Satiny snare
Mercury Falling my soul
long since sold
bitter sweet incomplete
Echoes alone

I didn't mean it this way
How fast this went to far
all I ever wanted
you just where you are

Ravening heartbeat spinning circles
a velveteen kiss
razor-blade bracelets
gallows humour
butterfly nets

I didn't mean it this way
How fast this went to far
all I ever wanted
you just where you are

Couldn't take the pain before you bled
stars and spangles
angles tangled in your hair

I didn't mean it this way
How fast this went to far
all I ever wanted
you just where you are

I didn't mean it this way
How fast this went to far
