but i love you

Winter apartment
We haven’t talked yet
I’m alone
I don’t feel cold
I don’t even feel lonely
You said you miss me
Feeling smothered 
Can’t breathe 
Can’t breathe

But I love you

Can’t sing or dance when you’re around
maybe even relief when you left town
And now
I crave no sound
No sound
Why is that?
Shaking in my boots
And your suits
Have no smell

But I love you
I can barely tell you
And I love you

Maybe oceans aren’t supposed to fall in love
Maybe they’re not supposed to fall in love

I couldn’t tell you how I felt
Not knowing what myself

I love you

love can be chains
if it isn’t done right
and it could rain
all day and night
yes I love you
can hardly bear it
sick to my stomach
and scared to my core
but I want you more
