I'll be your published novel
Your vanity remodeled

I come to you naked and bleeding
like any other evening

So sober I can feel your every move
So cold I'm frozen, I can't disapprove
I ask you plainly and honestly
You cover, calmly and comically

I'll be your secret project
Your lust restrained by logic

You'll hear the beat beside me
but you will never find me

You showed up late to the party here,
made up but stumbling everywhere
You went through all of my dresser drawers
Well, did you find what you were looking for?

Turned around
Settled down
Girl, don't front
We're never gonna have the love we want

While you're here,
let's be clear
Let's be blunt
We're never gonna have the love we want
