She wheezes out her dying wish.
Come closer. One more moment, one more kiss
And I love her, I give her all I can
Her body sinks, her heat released
The curtain swings, this time she leaves
I will remember all she's done for me
But only I forgot that I'm not ready to let her go
As all time moves, you'll be riddled with doubt
You'll mourn to pull through, but love is dangerous

When skeletons live inside your closets, thick and thin
you'll fear that no one will hear us sing our songs
The truth is relevant, but not for long
'Cause love is our downfall

I'm sorry this life cuts out everything
and leaves you to scrounge for nothing
There's no chance to try and mend,
whats been broken can't be bent
So the past remains the past until present
The cradle sways this black disguise
This chained coffin breathes our time's demise
All these shackles deceive just how long I've grieved

I made my move with no worry or doubt
Let them live as they do, my eternal reminder!

When skeletons live inside your closets, thick and thin
you'll fear that no one will hear us sing our songs
The truth is relevant, but not for long
'Cause love is our downfall

I'm sorry, but the hurt's not going away
I'll bury all the past,
Everything in it's place,
Give us the monster.

When skeletons live inside your closets, thick and thin
you'll fear that no one will hear us sing our songs
The truth is relevant, but not for long
'Cause love,

When skeletons live
When skeletons live
When skeletons live inside your closets, thick and thin
you'll fear that no one will hear

Ooh, I'm sorry this life cuts out everything
and leaves you to scrounge for nothing
Cuts out everything and leaves you to scrounge for nothing
Cuts out everything and leaves you to scrounge for nothing
