upshield

honestly this is such a pynch song, like? wow. also it’s just super fucking good

tell me i’m fire, baby, tell me to open up
shield my eyes, baby, they’ve seen so much

tell me you’re mine, baby. tell me before i erupt
burn up in the sky, baby, become the dust

i can see no use in ignoring your burning heart
just to calm mine, it’s such a waste of your time
but to love you takes every waking thought
i have when daylight comes to relieve the night

give me your fire, give me reasons to learn
give me every excuse to burn, let your flames rise

tell me you’re fine, baby. leave me ‘til i am distilled
and clean as the water, baby, and pour it over my fears

i can see no use in ignoring your heaving chest when you cry
it can’t be good for your heart
if loving me means every tear you make will burn your skin
as it leaves your eye -

give me your fire, give me reasons to learn
give me every excuse to burn
let your flames rise, let your flames rise higher
too far for you to touch, too hard is never too much
let your flames rise

i can feel the darkness in me
no monster, only a disaster waiting to be set fire to
and set free from my anatomy
but i can feel the warmth from your heart
to fight a fire with fire will make the darkness depart
so come a little closer and end my melody
