my effervescent soul

my effervescent soul

let me suck the love out of you
like a vampire and feed it to

the black hole in my heart

let me taste your hidden grace
and take it away
take it away

take it away

but my effervescent soul won’t stand for this
no, my effervescent soul will stop this kiss

help me get close to a rising star
and bake me in their sun fire

this train’s been running late from the start

help me survive this game that
i shouldn’t have played
shouldn’t have played

shouldn’t have played

but my effervescent soul will refuse your aid
no, my effervescent soul gets to my head

what does one do
what does one say

how does one stop
making mistakes

how does one hear
the heart and its fear

and turn away
turn away

turn away

from the pain?
