I had a thorn in my heart
I had an ace on my tongue
I never meant for the crash
I only meant to be strong
I shed my skin and roll over and turn out the light
Guess everybody's gonna sleep in their own bed tonight

So if you wanna take, take me
Take me for what I'm worth
And if you wanna save me, save me
Pretend this doesn't hurt
And if you wanna drain me, drain me
Drain me for all I'm worth
And if you wanna erase me, erase me
Send me to the dirt

I cried a staircase
Leaned over and looked out below
Where you restlessly slept on the arc of the globe
And as you sobbed through your sleep
I knew that I should have known
That every word you had wept
Was as pure as the snow

So if you wanna take, take me
Take me for what I'm worth
And if you wanna save me, save me
Pretend this doesn't hurt
And if you wanna drain me, drain me
Drain me for all I'm worth
And if you wanna erase me, erase me
Send me to the dirt

We fall asleep with our hearts in our throats
And a planet between what we feel and we hope
I wrap you up in the peddles of a rose
To keep you clean from the ashes that rain through my soul
And when the water's come up to my waist
And the cosmos have laughed off the plans that I've made
I only ask that you stay

So if you wanna take, take me
Take me for what I'm worth
And if you wanna save me, save me
Pretend this doesn't hurt
And if you wanna drain me, drain me
Drain me for all I'm worth
And if you wanna erase me, erase me
Send me to the dirt
