If this is what it takes to be forgiven
Then this is what I’ll do to stay alive
I was born to disappoint
This tragedy is bleak
Who will be left weeping here for me?

I doubt I’ll ever feel secure again
If there’s anyone who’s got
More to give than me
But I’ll stay and bear this and hope
That we never make the same mistakes
They’re just old stories now anyway

In the best interest of everyone but me
I’ll bow my head and step back graciously
I’ll make my bed where dead girls lie
And hope for better dreams
For them, for you, and for me

I’ll make my bed where dead girls lie
And sleep
