Post Chorus Fill

                       I'll be the corpse in your bathtub
                       I'll be as deaf as a post
                       If you hold me like a newborn
                       Whisper what you feel
                       My badly strung declaration
                       To You
                       You'll spend the end of your days
                       Gently smiling like a newborn
                       Love not by degrees

                       Press your lips
                       To my eyes
                       Taste my tears
                       On your tongue,
                       Pull the blinds
                       Play our song
                       Nothings changed
                       Nothing could be wrong.

                       Scream in the night
                       Kick and skrike
                       Like a newborn
                       Holding me shaking
                       Awake in the dark
                       All of these promises
                       Kept and unbroken
                       Tracing the scars
                       Tracing the scars
                       Even and cold
                       As we both become older.
                       Your arms bound about me
                       The hush in your voice.
                       The warmth of your fingers
                       Entwined around mine
                       In the eve of our lives
                       Never a choice.
