Drunk Valentine

by Franklin Gotham



NEW single 'Drunk Valentine' by Franklin Gotham



There’s no way to grow up
‘Til your heart is blown up
Torn apart from inside

Empty and shaken
My mind keeps on taking
Me places I cannot hide

You drew me in
And I drew them out
Words of regret
Straight from your mouth

Like an October night
Where death begins
Your warm bated breath
On my skin

Can’t say that I’m shocked
By the the way you describe me
Your quick, sharpened wit
So hard to refine

Don’t think I deserve
Those names that you call me
But I’ll always be
Your drunk valentine

Cuts like a knife

Lay your on head my chest
Know we both need a rest
Go slowly into the night

A long drawn out sentence
I’m not sure it makes sense
To stand down or put up a fight

You drew me in
I shut you out
You always whisper
While I always shout

You take a step back
And look into my eyes
Cause now there’s nothing to hide
