greed for your love lyrics – missy higgins

bursting with blood my fingertips pulse.
you didn’t forget me…at least immediately.
so here i will hover and feed off your love,
i’ll listen from the middle instead of above.
will you fill up my wounds with your styrofoam blood until i forget?

greed for your love… i bleed through this glove.
so why’s it aching when i’m laughing at the world?
greed for your love…

a quote and a question on a screen suppressed.
i know it’s not right ’cause it’s a second impression.
but i’d rather i taste my desires of earth
and fill my mind with jewels for all they are worth
than discover a diamond decays to a rock and time doesn’t turn.

greed for your love…
i bleed through this glove.
so why’s it aching when i’m laughing at the world?
greed for your love…

’cause who are you… to tell me what to do?
i will unwrap him just like a present
and i will discard him just when i want to thank you…

greed for your love…
i bleed through this glove.
so why’s it aching when i’m laughing at the world?
greed for your love…

greed for your love…
i bleed through this glove.
so why’s it aching when i’m laughing at the world?
greed for your love…
