Lyrics Edit

[Verse 1]
I can't wait to see your brilliant face
Light up the room around the pillowcase
She said, can you come over to my LA place
I got something to tell you and it just can't wait
I showed up, you held the door in tears
Sat on the couch under the chandeliers
You said you're having a baby and before I could cry
You're leaving me just when I thought you were mine

[Pre-Chorus 1]
But I don't see your face
Taken by the one hearted race
Oh no, don't tell your other man
I got a hell of a plan

[Chorus]
Failing lights amass one hundred sleepless nights
And I might be holding on too tight
But there's a beast in my heart and he won't let you leave alive

[Verse 2]
Nightmares
No longer wait for sleep
Crawl on the ground on both your hands and knees
Just like a lion and you're the queen of the pride
And we will feast together till the bones are gone

[Pre-Chorus 2]
But I don't see your face (oh, no)
Taken by the one hearted race
Oh, now, don't tell your other man
He’s not part of the plan

[Chorus]
Failing lights amass one hundred sleepless nights
And I might be holding on too tight
But there's a beast in my heart and he won't let you leave alive

[Bridge]
Do you still love me? I am dying to know
Or did you forget what we shared?
Out of sight out of mind, I was never even there

[Chorus]
Failing lights amass one hundred sleepless nights
And I might be holding on too tight
But there's a beast in my heart and he won't let you leave alive

[Outro]
This is the price you'll pay
Thoughts in your head that will never die
So don't you forget what we had
It's like I was never even there
Go!
