Track Name: You Destroy Me
You Destroy Me

You’re a thousand bells ringing inside my heart.
But it’s somebody else’s wedding and it’s tearing me apart.
Your eyes set doves in flight inside of me.
But now I’m a cage for birds with wings that can’t fly free.

You destroy me… baby.
You destroy me… like an enemy.

You’re a thousand lanterns filling a room with light.
But you shine so bright in white it makes me blind.
Your lips are hunters' bows you use to kill.
I love to die at their request but now it all seems real.

You destroy me… baby.
You destroy me… like an enemy.

You walk the aisle to the end.
I swear that I’m being killed by a friend.
Rose petals at your heels hide
the blood that is falling from my brow.

Strike me down and leave me here to die.
Breathe into my mouth, bring me back to life.

You destroy me… baby.
You destroy me… like an enemy.

Any objections? Speak now and defend.
I swear that I’m being killed by a friend.
Behind your veil you hide
like you know that you’re the wrong man’s bride.

Any objections? Speak now and defend.
I swear that I’m being killed by a friend.
Behind your veil you hide
like you know that you’re the wrong man’s bride.
