Forcing love with candlesticks

lyrics

Forcing love with candlesticks
broken-spigot tears are tricks
tired corkscrew then we kiss
I knew that new perfume would be the end of this

Edifices pressed in silence
Precipices blessed with violence
Dresses line the windows like a fence
Though I don’t blame you, it’s your mess

Oh but you know all of that, I’ve seen it change over night,
you know, all of that, I’ve seen it change with a knife,
you know, all of that, I’ve seen it change, on a flight you’re gone
You’re gone.

Even in the shadows here
Cigarette smoke I see clearly
You painted yourself, now you hang
Testimony to a bad year

Oh but you know all of that, I’ve seen it change over night,
you know, all of that, I’ve seen it change with a knife,
you know, all of that, I’ve seen it change, on a flight you’re gone
You’re gone.

You didn’t tell me, you didn’t say
that you only love me when you’re away
That I was only a tethered comfort till morning came
and showed you how mistakes are born

And how i was just your empty bottle love
Empty bottle love
Empty bottle love
