Role Reversal

Role Reversal

Fragile crimson frays between us

bound to snap

in the fading gaslight

You pull away

and I miss you like Stockholm syndrome

So I will hide you away

safely bound to me

And when you struggle to break

your scarlet chains

I will make you cease

(I would never hurt you

Just stay with me)

I will find the cracks in

your smiles and your lies

Rip you apart and ruin you

till all of you is broken

and mine

(I need you to need me)

Every last shard of you will I claim

As you voice begins to sing my melodies

I will tie you down in crimson

and become your wings

(Never again will you forget me)
