  • I can still taste you, and I hate it
    That wasn't a choice in the mind of a child and you knew it
    You took the first slice of me and you ate it raw
    Ripped at it with your teeth and your lips like a cannibal
    You fuckin' animal

    I can still taste you, and it kills me
    That there's still some sick part of it that thrills me
    That my own body keeps betraying me
    There is such power there, it may destroy me
    But it compels me

    Of course I deny it, can hardly believe it
    Dismiss or demean it 'cause I know I can't speak it

    But when I began to tell
    it became the hardest thing I ever said out loud
    The words got locked in my throat
    Man, I choked
    And this is what it feels like to be free
    Even though it follows back down
    Stares into the dark with me

    Even then I deny it, can hardly believe it
    Dismiss or demean it, but I know I must speak it

    If I could forgive you now
    Release you from all of the blame I know how
    If I could forgive you now
    As if saying the words
    Will help me know how
    To begin again

    Help me know how
    To begin

    Help me know how
    To begin again
    Help me know how
    To begin again
    Begin again Writer/s: Marcus Mumford
