    Hearts and Bones

    You are my demon lover
    And I cannot let you go
    Despite the pain you cause me
    I still love you so.

    I opened myself up to you
    Just hoping you would care
    Not knowing you would hurt me
    And leave me broken there.
     
    You ate away my loving heart
    And chewed upon my bones
    You tore away my tender flesh
    And left me there alone.
     
    I struggle to understand you
    And why you treat me so
    When I have never hurt you
    And would never let you go.
     
    I know that you’re a demon
    But demons can change too
    So I’ll wait for you to love me
    And hope your love for me is true.
     
    You ate away my loving heart
    And chewed upon my bones
    You tore away my tender flesh
    And left me there alone.
     
    So take me in your ragged wings
    And hold me close and tight
    And never let me go alone
    Into the dark of night.
     
    It’s hard to love a demon
    Cause you don’t know what they’ll do
    But I hope you learn to love me
    As I have done with you.
     
    You ate away my loving heart
    And chewed upon my bones
    You tore away my tender flesh
    And left me there alone.
