"burn my clothes, bury my crown"
How loud would I have to scream
To make a sound, to let you know?
And how tenderly would I have to whisper
That it's ok, that we can go?
But how cold the touch of your tongue
Your weighted words make no sound
But how violent must my loneliness become
To burn my clothes, bury my crown?
'Cause would it be enough for you to love me
And would I be enough for you?
How reckless is the heart that bleeds for love
That knows the warmth, that knows the taste?
And how blessed is the diamond in the rough
Who would offer her embrace?
And how foolishly the lonely mind can wander
And blinding lights falling down
And I'm sorry that I didn't tell you sooner
So burn my clothes, and burn my crown
'Cause would it be enough for you to love me?
Oh no, it wouldn't
I'd never be enough for you
