Lyrics[edit | edit source]

to taste my fear
summon up your demons, dear
i left you open
wondering

when you lie to break my heart

my dahlia
my dahlia, dear
my dahlia
my dahlia, dear

i breathe in shade
fluent in the choices made
my words, my summons
say i dare

when you lie to break my heart
when you lie, i'll break, i'll break, to break

my dahlia
my dahlia, dear
my dahlia
my dahlia, dear

anyone can see
you're laughing down at me
it's easy for you now

no room for kings
queens are what we gather here
i left you open
wondering

when you lie to break my heart
when you lie, i'll break, i'll break, to break

my dahlia
my dahlia, dear
my dahlia
my dahlia, dear

anyone can see
you're laughing down at me
it's easy for you now
