Blood Under My Belt

Album: Abysmal Thoughts (2017)
  • What does it take for you to believe that I have changed?
    I know very well that I have blood under my belt
    Yes, it's true that I hurt you
    But I still you, I love you, I still do
    And what did I say to make you want to run away?
    I know very well that I have blood under my belt
    Yes, it's true that I hurt you
    But I still love you, I love you, I still do
    (But you don't believe me)

    I see death coming at me too quickly
    I don't want this to end
    I take an apple from the tree we planted together
    I hold it in my hand

    I know I said "change"
    But please don't change
    I know I said "do it"
    But don't do it, don't do it

    What does it take for you to believe that I have changed?
    I know very well that I have blood under my belt
    Yes, it's true that I hurt you
    But I still you, I love you, I still do
    And what did I say to make you want to run away?
    I know very well that I have blood under my belt
    Yes, it's true that I hurt you
    But I still love you, I love you, I still do
    (But you don't believe me)

    I am scared of the child that lives in me
    I don't know if he learns
    You left your t-shirt under the bed we shared together
    I put it over my face

    I know I said "change"
    But please don't change
    I know I said "do it"
    But don't do it, don't do it

    What does it take for you to believe that I have changed?
    I know very well that I have blood under my belt
    Yes, it's true that I hurt you
    But I still love you, I love you, I still do
    And what did I say to make you want to run away?
    I know very well that I have blood under my belt
    Yes, it's true that I hurt you
    But I still love you, I love you, I still do
    (But you don't believe me)

    (What does it)
    (What does it)
    (What does it)
    (What does it)
