still breathing lyrics – cauterize

tear me open at the seams
take everything you need
take my heart if you like the beat
take my lungs if it’s hard to breathe, to breathe

“i’m not cold”, she said
but she’s shaking as she’s lying next to me naked
pulled the hair back from her face to let that smile heat this place
and this feels so far from real, i’m lost and i love it

i can’t take it, if you’re waiting
i am ready to tell the world about a girl
who showed me love again for the first time
and it’s everything i dreamed of

tell me what you thought about
when you were breathing, oh, so loud
screaming, oh, so loud, tell me if this is real
i need to know before i get too close

so here we lie in this beautiful mess
of tangled sheets and beads of sweat
with my heart in your hand and my neck in the other
should i be scared or should i come closer?
but it’s still beating and i’m still breathing
you haven’t hurt me yet

i can’t take it, if you’re waiting
i am ready to tell the world about a girl
who showed me love again for the first time
and it’s everything i dreamed of

tell me what you thought about
when you were breathing, oh, so loud
screaming, oh, so loud, tell me if this is real
i need to know before i get too close

morning always comes too quick
when you’re around, when you’re around
you leave me lying here so they don’t find us out
they’ll find us out

tear me open at the seams
take everything you need
take my heart if you like the beat
take my lungs if it’s hard to breathe

i can’t take it, if you’re waiting
i am ready to tell the world about a girl
who showed me love again for the first time
and it’s everything i dreamed of

i can’t take it, if you’re waiting
i am ready to tell the world about a girl
who showed me love again for the first time
