lyrics

I was alive when they buried me
beaten so bad, I could barely see
but i clawed my way out from six feet deep
searching for fresh air and clarity

I was a boy when i broke her heart
i wish i could take back that old, ugly part of us
but i’d never ask to go back to the start
All of those scars make us who we are
Made her a name that’s been sewn on my heart

Still, all I can think when I lay down to rest
Is how much I’m missing her head on my chest
A sensible heart, twenty-nine minus three
In search of somebody to bury me
I’m looking for someone to bury me

She might be no angel, and I’m no dove
But that don’t mean we won’t fit perfect in love
The truth is when pushes have become shoves
She’s something I want to be part of

When I’m soaked in blood, sweat, and spit from this work
But all I can smell is her hand on my shirt
If you see a redhead brunette, five-foot-nine minus three
Would you ask if she’d like to bury me
I’m looking for someone to bury me
I’m looking for someone to bury me
