Mewithoutyou - Tie Me Up! Untie Me! lyrics

rate me

I was looking at the leaves<br />

Climbing to the tops of the trees<br />

But you were nowhere to be found,<br />

Just beneath all the green<br />

You were buried like a little seed<br />

(Among the roots and underground,)<br />

I was licking at the leaves<br />

But I was in short sleeves and you.<br />

You were like some sickness that I caught.<br />

My sweetheart moved away,<br />

Swept off like garbage in the alleyway<br />

(I need more grace than I thought.)<br />

<br />

Brother, I'm far <br />

Brother im far way <br />

Brother away from everything good!(x2)<br />

She's like a hot cloth on a fevered head<br />

And like a needle she leads me <br />

Well, I follow like thread<br />

Tie me up!<br />

Untie me!<br />

All this wishing I was dead is getting old... is getting old<br />

It goes on but it's old.<br />

<br />

I was swimming through the waves<br />

For what must have been days<br />

But could find no relief,<br />

When I started sinking down<br />

I thought for certain I would drown<br />

Until I saw you in the ocean underneath<br />

All the bright colored fish<br />

Tell of a treasure in a dull shell,<br />

"Such subtlety, so easily missed!"<br />

You, my hidden pearl of pure and perfect love<br />

And I'm the living example of 100 percent the opposite of this,<br />

If I ask the same questions (now o know i ask the same question)(x2)<br />

Well maybe I repeat myself from time to time,<br />

But it's because everyone who answers me is a liar.<br />

<br />

She's like a hot cloth on a fevered head<br />

And like a needle she leads me<br />

Well, I follow like thread<br />

But you untied me - didn't you untie me, Lord?<br />

And now I haven't even thought about<br />

Killing myself in almost five months.
