You Killed Me

Knew who I was for days now
Its all gone away cause you killed me
Now I am shreds of a paper girl
All blown away cause you killed me
Made a new friend with the dust bones
Wrote out my courage with grinding teeth
Queens fell behind and left early
But I stayed for the burn and his love that was true.
I stayed for the burn and you killed me.

Next time my victory’s blowing
The dust storms will send my eyes snowing
From out of my mouth and my laugh and my fist
I will kill you next time, I will take it all back.
Because my six year old girl can’t be shaken
Cause my haunted saloon only houses ghosts now
When there’s nothing not dead you can’t kill me again.
