Will you fancy sitting down with me?
Mend all your rules only because you claim to love me?
The man who sees in black and white,
Will you indulge in grey for me?
Take my face in your hands
Stare down my eyes, gape open my soul
And find my blood reeking of regret and repentance,
Will you find it in your heart to forgive me?
Will you let your head be quiet tonight?
Listen to your heart scream whispers, the only rhythm it knows,
Put your head to my heart
And hear it scream apologies, a rhythm you have never heard before. 
Will you trace my tearstained cheeks
And find the will to wipe them clean,
Like the memories that haunt us and keep you away from me?
Allow time to tend the daggers I sowed, love
Watch me pluck each one out,
And decorate with flowers the holes I dug
Will you fancy sitting down with me?
