Slow, thoughtful folk electronic track about love. An otherwise invincible man pleads desperately with the only person in the world with the power to defeat him. Acoustic guitar, synth, piano, heavy background vocals.


I walked away
From a burning plane
I brushed the dust off my shoulders
From an oncoming train
I was pushed from the empire state
And landed on my feet
They pulled the trigger
And I smiled with a bullet between my teeth

Hold me down
I can breathe under water
Hold me down
I will wake up tomorrow
Hold me down
I’ve been safe up til now
But if you walk out that door
I’ll fucking drown

Never broke a sweat
A noose around my neck
I ran into the fire and I returned
With a lit cigarette

Poison drink
Chamber gas
I can walk on broken glass
Burning stake
Flight of stairs
I shorted out my electric chair

All the world I can bear
But I’m a wreck without you here
Baby, I’m a wreck without you here
