lyrics

True love, no I don’t love you still
I know you think you do
I know you hope I will
And pure heart, you get nothing for your grief
But salt water in your mouth
Blood staining all your teeth

Am I the one who deals the blow that takes you down?
Hey, you can think on me when you’re heaving on the ground

True love, now you’re so young at heart
Does your mind race in fear
Whenever we’re apart?
And pure heart, I don’t know what to say
I sink to my bedroom floor
The minute you go away

Am I the one who deals the blow that takes you down?
Hey, you can think on me when you’re heaving on the ground

Chorus
Mother told me give it, give it, give it time
Don’t you know I’m wasting yours when I waste mine
Maybe if I give it, give it, give it time to die
Don’t you tell me give it, give it, give it time
And don’t you hold your breath and hope I’ll change my mind
Maybe when you give it, give it, give it time to die

True love, tell me what’s in your soul
Right when you’re most at peace
That’s when you lose control
And pure heart, give me the honest truth
Struck to the cold cement
Here in the bloom of youth

And I’m the one who deals the blow that takes you down
Hey, do you think on me when you’re heaving on the ground?

Chorus
