lyrics

On the sleeve of my shirt
Rests my heart
It's black as tar
Beats cold and dark

The real pain
Is in-between
And inside out
When it can't be seen

Brush it off
Like the dirt on my shoulder
Every year
It gets bitter and older

And here I lay me
Down to sleep
My heart-sleeves soaked
From weeks of weeping

i don't wanna keep
getting colder
please let me
lay on your shoulder

I don't wanna live
Without your love
Please don't brush me
Off the cuff...
