Peel my heart off the August pavement,
But please don't dust the footprints off for me.
Love, did you ever hear me crying?
Did you ever see me bleed,
As you drug away my laughter,
And stomped on all my dreams?
I feel worn out and tattered...
Like a rug no longer worthy of your floor.
So beat me against the walls of your jagged mind,
And place me as a mat outside your door.
Please know your beautiful stabbing words please me-
And don't worry, I will not ask for more...
I won't ask for you to stay, Love,
After this I won't ask for anything...
I'm just begging you to finish what you've started,
For I've come to love the pain.
I really love the pieces of me upon your soles,
I adore the darkness that you bring.
Please just peel my heart my heart of the August pavement,
And break me once again.
