lyrics

The first time since Christmas that I’ve laid still
The first time I’ve had to come apart
Oh he cracked me open like a coconut
He cracked me open and he ate my heart

He said, Oh if you want to fall awake with me (anywhere, any way)
Oh if you want to fall apart my love
Oh if you want to fall awake with me (any place, any day)
Hold me like a baby
Hold me like a baby, and sing to me

The first time since Christmas that I’ve felt whole
No more pieces of me scattered over town
Oh he cracked me open and he rearranged
The parts of me that he had found

He said, Oh if you want to fall awake with me (anywhere, any way)
Oh if you want to fall apart my love
Oh if you want to fall awake with me (any place, any day)
Hold me like a baby
Hold me like a baby, and sing to me

And when the bad thoughts come in the middle of the night
I reach out to him and he holds the light
He says, my chest is a forest so just hold on tight
And we’ll get lost together
He said, we’ll get lost together

He said, Oh if you want to fall awake with me (anywhere, any way)
Oh if you want to fall apart my love
Oh if you want to fall awake with me (any place, any day)
Hold me like a baby
Hold me like a baby
Oh if you want to fall awake with me (anywhere, any way)
Oh if you want to fall apart my love
Oh if you want to fall awake with me (any place, any day)
Hold me like a baby
Hold me like a baby
And sing to me
Hold me like a baby
Hold me like a baby
And sing to me
Hold me like a baby
Hold me like a baby
And sing to me
