Lyrics:

She was as cold as ice,
but her cheeks were warm
like a lampshade
right after lights out.

Under the sheets we’d meet
and fall asleep
watching TV:
nose to nose, knees to knees.

Slipping drops of whiskey in our tea.
She put it all on me:
the bottles and pills,
bottles of pills in the grass.

“It’ll be alright,”
I’d say with her hands in mine
on the bathroom floor:
nose to nose, knees to knees

Get me out

“Remember to breathe”
I’d cool your flushed face
with a damp cloth,
crack a joke to make you smile.

But you never asked.
You never gave a fuck,
but I couldn’t leave.
‘Cause was nose to nose, knees to knees.

Get me out

I needed to leave you,
but I never even had you

She was as cold as ice,
but her cheeks were warm
like a lampshade
right after lights out.
