lyrics

There's a hole in my chest like a cave with bats
And beetles no sun only shade

I don't know what it means

But it's there when you leave

Let's keep it light-hearted and dumb
I'll secretly hope you stick around
Keep an eye on the door

Hang out where you might show

It's forbidden, a confidential fact

I want you but I wouldn't tell you that

In my mind I pace the floor hope you'll call
Read between lines what's not there at all

I can't own up to it

You're my shady habit

Because you say you can tell me everything

And it's me you wanna see when your girl's off her hinges
Soon this crumbling shell

Won't hide my secret so well

It's forbidden, a confidential fact

I want you but I wouldn't tell you that

There's a hole in my chest like a cave with bats
And beetles no sun only shade

I think I know what it means

So I really should leave

It's forbidden, a confidential fact

I want you but I wouldn't tell you that
