Inspired by various alternative grunge and metal songs as well as the dark, depraved stories that I read more than I breathe, I decided to write a song that represents a blending of those two loves of mine. I am no musician, I bearly have a melody for this, but if anyone is interested I'd love to hear people make something of it for fun!

I have this ache in my chest

Buried deep inside

A grave I dug with fingernails

A place for you to hide

In the wind, I hear your moans

My ribs cracking headstones

My lungs are full of your bones

Gardens tattooed on my skin

Ready to give in to it all

I’m whispering a sirens' call

A serenade before I fall

Like petals in the wind

CHORUS

I want to resurrect you

Pull apart, dissect you

(Pull apart, dissect you)

See what secrets I can find

I want to look in your eyes

Pull apart the grey skies

(Pull apart the grey skies)

I refuse to be denied

Promises like chalk art

I spill graffiti on your skin

Begging, when can we start

Won't let the Reaper win

You look so still I'm breaking

My breath you keep on taking

These wounds I can't be faking

I’m shredded by the thorns

The world is full of smoke now

I'm made of ash and bone, how

Do I take that last bow

They're throwing flowers at my feet

CHORUS

I want to resurrect you

Pull apart, dissect you

(Pull apart, dissect you)

See what secrets I can find

I want to look in your eyes

Pull apart the grey skies

(Pull apart the grey skies)

Don't you dare leave me behind

I will cut myself wide open

Spill this crimson blood

Can't stop myself from hopin’

We can sink beneath this flood

I smile as I'm drowning

A thank you on my lips

Praying you won't leave me

My sanity, it slips

You creep inside me gently

Tucked against my heart

You tell me that you love me

You tear my flesh apart

CHORUS

I want to resurrect us

Pull apart, dissect us

Shred the veil inbetween

I want to steal your grey eyes

Paint the night on fresh sky's

Take the things that can't be seen

I have this ache in my chest

Buried deep inside

A grave I dug with fingernails

Where we lay now side by side

(Where we lay side by side)

    This is great. Inbound myself trying to sing along.

  • I could pull out every line since I liked this so much but these in particular, "My ribs cracking headstones / My lungs are full of your bones" struck me as incredibly powerful. I loved this! But then again, I love grunge and metal too! Great job and Congrats on the Top Story!

    I love this so so much!!! I was trying to think of different melodies as I went through it. It's so beautifully written! If you like grungy/alternative music with beautiful lyrics like this, I highly recommend Sleep Token!
