Austra – Hurt Me Now lyrics

In a burning building
I was bowling over
With a head of ashes
On a bed of stone
Oh, can you hear me now?
Oh, don't hurt me now

In the velvet calm
Willing, undone
I placed my heart on the table
When the fire comes
Oh, don't hurt me now
Oh, don't hurt me now

Have I become
Willing, undone?
You put the temple
Into the ground

Oh, don't hurt me now
Oh, don't hurt me now

In the velvet calm,
Had I known the hour
What I would have done their bidding
What would I have done?
Had I had a hundred fathers
Had I been a king
How I would have gone
