You shut me out after letting me inside
You run me off when I’ve hardly arrived
There’s so much pain and love in your eyes
So much pain and love in your eyes

You rip out my heart and slash my chest
You curb stomp it with words so ruthless
I love when you tell me to shut the fuck up
And in the next breath try to butter me up
Tell me everything about me that makes you cringe
Break me down when you’re unhinged
Beat me to a pulp with your twisted tongue
Suck out my soul with your blackened lungs

You shut me out after letting me inside
You run me off when I’ve hardly arrived
There’s so much pain and love in your eyes
So much pain and love in your eyes

You’re both the calm before and the storm
You’re a human of the most volatile form
One comment taken wrong’s an atom bomb
One drink too many sparks a fire of ire
You can’t stand to ever not be right
One trip of the tongue ignites a fight
You insult then turn around and kiss me
You might just be as deranged as me

You shut me out after letting me inside
You run me off when I’ve hardly arrived
There’s so much pain and love in your eyes
So much pain and love in your eyes

To tell you the truth, I’m a mirror image of you
So I understand the insane things you do
You and me could be a devastating hurricane
Or we could be as amazing as the big bang
As much as your Jekyll, I’ll care for your Hyde
If you promise to try to do the same with mine
