I want you so much but I hate your guts.
We are what we are. Don’t need no excuses for the scars from our mothers. And we know what we know ’cause we’re made of all the little bones of our fathers.
-Daughter, The Woods
We both know I’ll never be your lover. I only bring the heat; company under cover, filling space in your sheets.
Keep the nightmares out. Give me mouth to mouth. I can’t live without ya. Take me to your house.
You could still be what you want to be, what you said you were when you met me.
We are the reckless. We are the wild youth chasing visions of our futures. One day we’ll reveal the truth that one will die before he gets there.
Well, I’ve lost it all. I’m just a silhouette, a lifeless face that you’ll soon forget. My eyes are damp from the words you left, ringing in my head when you broke my chest.
Take your hands off him ’cause he’s the only one that I have ever loved. And please don’t find her skin when you turn the lights out.
Did she make your heart beat faster than I could? Did she give you what you hoped for? Oh, nights of loveless love, I hope it made you feel good, knowing how much I adored you.
And we were in flames… I needed you to run through my veins like disease. And now we are strange, strangers…
Oh, winter comes… Oh, winter crush all of the things that I once loved…
In the darkness, I will meet my creators. They will all agree, I’m a suffocator.
I’m sorry if I smothered you. I sometimes wish I’d stayed inside my mother, never to come out.
It’s spiraling down- biting words like a wolf howling. Hate is spitting out each others mouths. But we’re still sleeping like we’re lovers, still with feet touching, still with eyes meeting, still our hands match, still with hearts beating.
You can try to forget me but I won’t let you easily.
By tomorrow we’ll be lost amongst the leaves, in a wind that chills the skeletons of trees. And when the moon, it shines, I will leave two lines- find my love, then find me.
Don’t bring tomorrow ’cause I already know I’ll lose you.
Take me out of this place I’m in. Break me out of this shell-like case I’m in.
Underneath the skin there’s a human buried deep within, there’s a human. And despite everything I’m still human…
Give me touch ’cause I’ve been missing it. I’m dreaming of strangers kissing me in the night just so I can feel something.
You steal me away with your eyes and with your mouth. And just take me back to a room in your house and stare at me with the lights off… to feel something…
I used to dream of adventure when I was younger, with lungs miniature. But now we’re killing our brain cells. Is this called living or something else?
If you leave when I go, find me in the shallows.
Oh, I won’t be your doll so please don’t you ask me to. You see, I don’t look so good in yellow like other dolls they do.
-Daughter Band, Peter
Will you stay with me, my love, for another day? ‘Cause I don’t want to be alone when I’m in this state. Will you stay with me, my love, till we’re old and grey? I don’t wanna be alone when these bones decay.
Your kisses are not what I wanted. Your kisses are not what I crave. Your kisses may be a beautiful art, but all I ever wanted was your heart right from the start.
-Daughter, Your Kisses
