lyrics

i used to hide inside the closet underneath my mother's skirts
against the wall behind the shoes
and the carpet smelled like hair
but it felt safe cuz you weren't there

that closet's filled with someone else's clothes and someone else's child
lays quiet in the dark
like the memory
always them or me

i thought i'd drown in your bitter water
to feel alive when things were wrong

everybody's waiting on you so make your move
teach me teacher, teach me how to groove
i am only here to run through you
violet creature running through the blue
violet creature run run running through

i used to hold my hand against the sky to see if i could keep the sun from burning through my skin
even though i knew
it was hard to do

now in the morning light is white
it chills my face like foreign spite
i thought i'd die from lack of dark
and it feels like hell
but you taught me well

when does the sound of laughter stop
those nights with stars were lost to crumbled paper
the shapes i make when i don't move haunt me the most
you hold me still like some pale ghost

everybody's waiting on you so make your move
teach me teacher, teach me how to groove
i am only here to run through you
violet creature running through the blue
violet creature run run running through

underneath and overheat
you've arranged a lovely meeting without air
pick me pick me, careful and contagious
choosing, bruising

everybody's waiting on you so make your move
teach me teacher, teach me how to groove
i am only here to run through you
violet creature running through the blue
violet creature run run running, running, running through
