Thrice Backdraft Lyrics

Leave me here and lock the door
latch the windows, lose the key
But you'll be back some day
What else then is TRUE LOVE for
if not to starve and wait for spring
So I'll just sit and wait

Oh, swing the door wide open
show me your jaded eyes
I will turn them red
drunk with vivid flame
You will see again,
and you will learn your real name and speak it
when your whole world turns to fire

Leave me with no air to breathe
leave me here to die alone
But I won't suffocate
I'll have everything I need
when you forget and come back home
so I'll just sit and wait
