Eyes of an Eagle

I know I’m not supposed to be with you but

It’s like I can’t stay away

I hate the way you love me because

You sit there and watch me bleed to death

But I don’t ever want you to look away because

I love the way you look at me

I hate the way you love me because

you sit there watch me crack until I shatter

But I don’t ever want you to look away because

I love the way it feels

There’s this spark between the two of us

That makes my heart pump faster

Without you I feel dead

But you breathe life into me

I hate the way you love me because

I love you back, I’m an addict for you

It’s too difficult to quit, I can’t stop

You sit there and watch me suffer until I explode

But I don’t want you to ever stop watching

Because I feel like a star

If you love her, then I love her too

I am madly in love with you

You can’t leave me

Because your only escape route is through the windows

To my soul and I tend to keep my eyes closed

To block the pain in sight, so that it stays out of mind

I can still see you even when my back is turned

I feel your sorrow and tension climb up my back

You hit me, then you hate me

But when you say sorry, I forgive you

Because I love the hurt.

So damn addictive 

I wish you knew how it felt

I wish you had a brain to know

I wish I could stop wishing

You can see everything like an eagle can

But do you like what you see?

Is it entertainment?

Is it punishment?

Or is it all love?

I want to stop wondering

Fortunately, I am not afraid of the truth

But how can you sit there watch me

run on razors blades and fall on salt

You help me up with spilled lemonade on your hands

And I fall again

The stinging pain against my exposed scars burn

Don’t stop loving me the way you do.

Hurts so bad, I love it, and I love you

You love so tight, my ribs are crushed, I can’t breath

I’m dead but but you’re keeping me alive

I guess your love can love in mysterious ways

I know you’ll never let me go

But the moment you close your eyes, I’ll be gone

By the time you reopen them.

Then you’ll be locked here, and I’ll be out free watching you cast to suffer.
