You give so easily
And I don't like to ask for things
So leave it to me to breathe in deep
And ask for something you can't give me
My outsides are cold
And my insides are warm
But whenever I try to let my insides out
My outsides end up closing in
I don't want to live that way
It's a hard and barren kind of safe
You live in the world of open
Can I come in?
My heart is warm and soft, like a newborn puppy
It's blind and helpless, it flops around
Looking for something safe to burrow into
Deep and strong and nurturing, safe to burrow into
I know these cat-lined eyes and sharpened hands
Look like they have something else in mind
But all I want is something safe to burrow into
Can I hide my tear-stained face and burrow into you?
