lyrics

The frozen grapes from the freezer melted in my mouth
Just like the long June hours I couldn’t figure out
I peeled their thin glossy skin between my white and brittle teeth
Just enough to feel their baby veins rolling from cheek to cheek

I wont sweep this under the rug
I will sweep it under your blood
-
Oh my God oh my God
How beautiful

I stared at that stupid photograph much longer than I should have
Read the letters over and over they were all I had
Sometimes those silky summer days they seem too stained to be real
I start crumbling like the sidewalk chalk pressed to the cement ground

I wont sweep this under the rug
I will sweep it under your blood
-
Oh my God oh my God
How beautiful

The heat from the cars with the windows rolled up
And the rooms in the buildings stacked like plastic cups
Swallowed me whole while I poured my heart out
And gave away the secrets I swore I would never talk about

I wont sweep this under the rug
I will sweep it under your blood
-
Oh my God oh my God
How beautiful
