Perfume Genius – On The Floor Lyrics

On The Floor By Perfume Genius

i’m trying
but still i close my eyes
the dreaming
brining his face to mine

lock the door

the constant buzzing
all through the night
the fight it
rips me all up inside

on the floor

i pace, i run my mouth
i pray and wait
i cross out his name on the page

how long ’til this washes away?
how long ’til my body is safe?
how long ’til I walk in the light?
how long ’til this heart isn’t mine?

the rise and fall
of his chest on me
i’m trying
but still it’s all i see

the violent
current of energy
i hide it
away and underneath

lock the door

i shake, i promise everyday
to change
i cross out his name on the page

how long ’til this washes away?
how long ’til my body is safe?
how long ’til I walk in the light?
how long ’til this heart isn’t mine?

take this wildness away
i just want him in my arms
