lyrics

Loving you is like lying in a garden of nettles
It’s like grasping the stem of a rose that doesn’t have any petals
It’s like trying to quench your thirst with easy cheese
You gotta take a big huge breath, you can only wheeze

Now if a blade of grass can push itself through concrete
Don’t tell me we don’t have a chance to grow
A flower busts its way up down on main street
So, shut your mouth and breathe through your nose

You tried your way through her hard five-inch-thick skin
Making your way through the dark until you smash your shin
Tiny fragments of bone compound the issue
Your eyes they burn so bad you should have saved the tissue

And that instant flash of pain brings mind and mission
Nothing is as clear and certain as hindsight and 20/20 vision

Loving you is like lying in a garden of nettles
It’s like grasping the stem of a rose that doesn’t have any petals
