Feverbreak Lyrics

Lyrics to Feverbreak
Her hair ablaze with auburn strands
Her eyes are glazed with worry
Pale hands that reach from the water
Cross-legged on the dock
Moonshine upon the surface
She's a body, not herself
Not a lover but a service

Took too long to see that she was just a bosom for his cheek
Just a pillow for his head
Just a scream amidst the reeds tangled 'round and 'round her legs
But she prayed that he would see that though the love was strong enough
She was drowning

See here lay the problem
Resting on the riverbed
Smothered in sand and pyrite
It's if her needs had died
For he brushed them to the side
As an old writer brushes paper from his desk
But as you stare you see it's blank
Two wrongs don't make a right
Two hands stay intertwined
These days turn into night with quick succession causing fright
She can't control the time
She can't escape the lime that tastes so goddamn bittersweet
So she'll see him tonight

I'm burning can you help me break the fever?
Never needed anything more than your real love
We're moving our hands and our bodies like we're liquid
I'm burning can you help me break the fever?

These days are very vague
There's nothing I can say
You took my joy along with the TV
Are you kidding me?
I walk alone at dusk
When the bitter cold can cut
Through tension on the shoulders
Let the smoke fill up my lungs
I'm looking forward to the evening
Yeah I'm trying very hard to seem complete
But I really hope secretly that you can see me
Oh can you see what you've done to me?

I'm burning can you help me break the fever?
Never needed anything more than your real love
We're moving our hands and our bodies like we're liquid
I'm burning can you help me break the fever?
Pour another drink, maybe seven, just to forget

I should've told you
You were a cold man
You were unfeeling
Unknowingly broken
But I'll see you tonight yeah
Yeah I'll see you tonight

A woman is not a bed
A love is not a home
Her heart would've walked barefoot on hot coals
That's why he's now alone
He never touched her words
He barely touched her bones
Before you lay with a lucid writer
Ask, "Are you bold?"

I'm burning can you help me break the fever?
Never needed anything more than your real love
We're moving our hands and our bodies like we're liquid
Pour another drink, maybe seven, just to forget

I should've told you
You were a cold man
You were unfeeling
Unknowingly broken
But I'll see you tonight yeah
Yeah I'll see you tonight

I'm burning can you help me break the fever?
Never needed anything more than your real love
We're moving our hands and our bodies like they're liquid
Pour another drink, maybe seven, just to forget

I should've told you
You were a cold man
You were unfeeling
Unknowingly broken
But I'll see you tonight yeah
Yeah I'll see you tonight
