lyrics

under the crying tree
there is a girl
with hard lips
and soft words

her breath is sweet
her song is myth
every heart collected
an ungranted wish

but you will love who you love
even when it's the wrong one
you will love who you love
even when it's the wrong one

under the crying tree
there is a girl
who wields her doubt
and razes the world

her love is a knife
my name is a cut
her kindness, the liquor
that thins my blood

but you will love who you love
even when it's the wrong one
you will love who you love
even when it's the wrong one

I could try to hold her
keep her close
but she will push me into darkness
make me a ghost
