Novocain

Your face is everywhere
I can feel complete
When we lie here
Your arms around
Your smell, your sound
And I open my eyes
To your smiling lips
Some warmth comes over me
And your voice covers me

Then we twist and coil
Under sheets of strain
How I need you now
Can't find you
Keep on talking
Keep me moving to you
Keep soothing
Shed my demons for you

You're my Novocain
And I can't explain
How I feel this way
Every night and day
You're my Novocain
I'll push back this pain

And we bite and scratch now
Could be hate, could be love
Could be nothing at all
Somehow i'm filled up:
Empathy, timpani,
Symphony in my heart
It'd be so easy to turn your back now
How are you still here
And I made this place out of dirt and hatred
How are you changing my mind?

How can I feel myself
All the spite I keep inside
Blown to dust by your sparkling eyes
I see my world in there

Everything I need's in you
And you're killing the evil
All I sold
I can't let go
Please let me know
I told you so
Find some soul
Snap and twirl
Lost my world
"You're such a pretty girl", you said

You're my Novocain
And I can't explain
How I feel this way
Every night and day
You're my Novocain
I'll push back this pain

And you hold me down now
Whisper something solid
Tell me anything to keep me here
You never listen
Come to find my love
You can't break what's been broken
Freeze this frame
You're my Novocain

For the first time
I am helpless
I am hopeless
Victim to touch to breath to emotion
Take me home
Sandy isle
Florida smile
Everything making me human this time

You're my Novocain
And I can't explain
How I feel this way
Every night and day
You're my Novocain
I'll push back this pain

And I'm so sorry
I act this way
While I sway away from you
Pretend I don't care
Shake it off, cover up
Push back the realization
I'm in love with you
And it hurts to breathe
I can't believe
How it hit this time
My empty heart would cry
If it knew how I fell for you
My blackened heart would die
If it knew I'm in love with you my Novocain

You're my Novocain
And I can't explain
How I feel this way
Yes I feel this way
Love my Novocain
Keep my Novocain
Hurt my Novocain
Shoot my Novocain
Love my Novocain
I need you within the driving snow, you know
