Cw: Abuse, suicide

lyrics

V1:
There’s seven billion people I could have been instead
Then again, maybe we all start out clean
Well, seven billion different futures died today
Will you lie and say that you loved me?
Will you lie and say that you loved me?

V2:
There’s seven billion people I could have been instead
And seven billion people I could still be
And if I let them disappear, if I fade away
Will you lie and say that you loved me?
Will you lie and say that you loved me?

Chorus:
Because I can’t get the memory of your hands upon me off of me
And I can’t scrub clean the residue, all the touching that I let you do
I can’t live inside myself knowing I’ve belonged to someone else
And I can’t escape the memory of everything I let you do to me

V3:
If you found me pared right down to skin and bone
Stretching taught across my hips, withering away
Would your fingerprints decay with my skin?
Will you lie and say that you loved me?
Will you lie and say that you loved me?

Chorus:
Because I can’t get the memory of your hands upon me off of me
And I can’t scrub clean the residue, all the touching that I let you do
I can’t live inside myself knowing I’ve belonged to someone else
And I can’t escape the memory of everything I let you do to me

V4:
There’s seven billion places I could go without you
And seven billion songs that I could write
That aren’t about you
If I throw it all away
Just so your hands won't ever touch me
Will you lie and say that you loved me?
Will you lie and say that you loved me?

Outro:
There's seven billion people I could still be
