Pulling teeth (wire)

It feels like you’re pulling teeth
Laying in bed with me
I miss your character
I miss your strength

I never saw your love for me as particularly strong
But I missed the boat there
You probably had my back there
And if I knew I would have cared

Sweet solace, forgiveness
The forbidden tongue
Forever paying for my bad decisions
Your skeptical eye drawn upon me
Dangerous, vigorous
Gentle enough to kiss like broad daylight
With you I want to spend all of my nights

You will never wake up and forgive me
And you don’t have the characteristics I require
But if the timing is dire
I say let’s bend the wire

I’ll come back for you
I’ll come back for you
