She’s always gone after what she wants
Never thought about who she would step on
She doesn’t wear much makeup, which makes me hate myself more
And sometimes I think I wanna wear her skin

Sweet as sugar dripping from a honey jar
Gorgeous and confusing from afar

She is mean like Arcadian cruelty
Then goes home and combs her hair straight again
Simply thinks herself radiant royalty
And sometimes I think I want to put her in the ground

Golden daggers fly far from her brown eyes
Dreadful and endearing, but didn’t I

Kill her in my mind a thousand times?
Trying not to think about her every night
Someone told me so that I’d never be
Fine until I let her go

Irrationally I thought that we would be friends one day
But I know I wouldn’t like that
She tastes like resentment and sounds like a metaphor
For everything I want
