Lyrics

Verse 1
I’ve never been the one to let people in
My heart was never on my sleeve, never on my sleeve
It’s easier to fight my demons on my own
But here you come, with your serpent tongue
You tell me this is who I am, this is who I am
And maybe I should give in and let it go

Chorus
You promised me you’d be my anodyne
You promised me you’d be my anodyne

Verse 2
With every day that I spend with you
Your words are cutting deeper still, even deeper still
I hate it but I can’t seem to find my peace
And so, I breathe you in like a cigarette
With every breath you’re killing me, slowly killing me
But damn it if you don’t taste so sweet

Chorus
You were supposed to be my anodyne
You were supposed to be my anodyne

Bridge
Now I’m looking in the mirror
Like some modern Mr. Gray
The more I feed into your image
The more I quickly fade away
I don’t mind this Hell I’ve crawled to
At least it’s something that I know
But I can’t help but feel there’s more for me
If you’d just let me go
