lyrics

There’s a map of my heart
And it’s laid out there on my skin
And it came from the dark
And it’s etched with nails and pins
That clock up there is ticking
And the ticking will not cease
If the tickets are all taken
I will find no peace

Do you know what you do to me?

There’s a drink with my name
And I’m sailing out to the storm
And I live with the shame
And I carry the blame and the scorn
That clock up there is broken
And I never knew your heart
We are fragile, we are shadows
We are here and we’re apart

Do you know what you do to me?
