Traces

Traces of you in me

Every time we touch

Is an emotional nuclear bomb

Why do I feel it all I can’t make it stop

But it doesn’t matter

I guess I’ve always been safe from you

Because you’ll never leave her

That was the plan all along

To stay safe

To stay away from love

It’s not you

It’s not you

It’s not you

It was the idea of you

I lied to myself

A white lie

To keep me safe from men

I was protecting myself

You wouldn’t understand

You grew up thinking women always wanted men

I’d rather break my heart than my bones
