Cauterize – Closer lyrics

Closer

What started out as desire, turned into a lover's tryst
Who knew a moth and a flame could ever spawn a love like this
And you need something to taste
Something just a little bit more sweet
But I am sour and more sour
Every time that our lips meet

[Bridge:]
If you're a butterfly I'm suicide by insecticide
If I am kerosene then you're a spark
Just begging to ignite
You'll wish you never met me
(Butterfly) Butterfly, float on by me

[Chorus:]
Never meant to cut so deep (Just enough to bleed)
Feel the sting as you get closer (Closer and closer to me)
Don't let me hold something so delicate (I'll shatter it with a word)
Don't say a thing as we get closer and closer
Damn, this is gonna hurt

The ghost of a pathetic past is haunting me here more and more
The skeletons are laughing at me through the closet door
And now past lovers share these covers
Sleeping with my enemies
Thoughts of others come between us
Trigger fits of jealousy

[Bridge:]

[Chorus:]

You can paint me pretty colors
And dress me how you like
I'm just an ugly moth in love
In a butterfly disguise

And I've been thinking about leaving since the day that we met
Cause if I don't get close when it's all over I'll just forget
'Cause I have seen the end so many times I've played it in my mind
And I am scared to death I never want to see your dark side

If you're a butterfly I'm suicide by insecticide
If I am kerosene then you're a spark
Just begging to ignite
You'll wish you never met me
(Butterfly) Butterfly, float on by me

Never meant to cut so deep (Just enough to bleed)
Feel the sting as you get closer (Closer and closer to me)
Don't let me hold something so delicate (I'll shatter it with a word)
Don't say a thing as we get closer and closer
Damn, this is gonna hurt
Never meant to cut so deep (Just enough to bleed)
Don't say a thing as we get closer and closer
Damn, this is gonna hurt
