She can hurt you now

from go fish by Lily Schaffer



watch the water break
through the fingers of your true love
you capitulate
the shower stall is fogging up
and you know, but you don't ever make a sound

you're naked, as bodies move around
you're staving the sliver of a doubt
she's shaving, as it falls to the ground
well, she can hurt you now

can't get your head around
what you want and what you can tolerate
it's getting colder out
but her breath is warm, like a leap of faith
and you know, but you don't
ever hesitate

you're flailing, and things are going south
you're dangling, you're hanging at the mouth
she's saying, "Oh baby, don't look down!"
well, she can hurt you now

your will is as strong as the days are long
but your addiction is stronger
and your nights are longer

well, maybe it will all work out
keep staving the sliver of a doubt
repaving, until you're underground
because she can hurt you now
