MarlBoro Lovers

[Verse 1] 
Cigarettes lit after sex 
You fucked me up, the scar’s still fresh 
Whiskey cold, oh, no regrets 
I bite your lips, we’re in the trenches

[Pre-chorus 1] 
As I dive into your skin 
I found scars, I found scars 
As I dive into my skin 
It was dark, I am dark

[Chorus 1] 
I’m afraid to lose you 
Your touch is the only drug I trust 
I’m afraid we’ll miss the cue 
Undress cause you’re the only thing that makes me feel


[Verse 2] 
3am, you lie on my arms 
Out of condoms, soldiers unarmed 
You slept so sound, I’ve lost my calm 
Kiss your forehead, I am yours

[Pre-chorus 2] 
You bite when you try to hide 
All your scars, all your scars 
You smoke when you think I sleep at night 
But tell me dear, oh I am here

[a small message] 
We’re pretty much, just, i don’t know, 
Broken people 
On the same bed, lying awake at night 
Please just don’t worry about breaking me or something 
it’s not gonna happen. 
For one, I’m already ,like, broken as fuck. 
For two, if it’s you, I don’t mind. 
I want you to break me.

Well, it’s more like, I want you.

[Chorus 2] 
I’m afraid, I’ll fuck you up 
And Hennessy ain’t a godd place to start, oh. 
I’m afraid to open your wounds, 
Because of what the Jagermeister may say.
