The Shape of Love to Come

This song is by Say Anything and appears on the album Hebrews (2014).

They say it takes some time to find the one you're meant for
I spent that time in stranger's beds
Had my mom pick me up at 5:30 in the morning
From a downtown loft where the Cthulhu inside me was fed
But now he's dead
And as these writers age, they run out of conflict to chronicle
Become flabby and mundane
But what we built in hell is anything but boring
It's the kind of love-lust that could drive a madman insane

And the truth is I can't be aroused unless I'm in love
So thank God I found you, thank God I found you

And I want you
And I need you, now and forever
And I want you
And I need you, now and forever

With no irony, I'll exclaim, "You Are My Shelter"
As I sing along to your sister's tune
And you have built these walls since you were smaller than Lucy
I'm gonna break them down in the sheets of our shadowy room

The truth is I can't be around unless I'm in love
So thank God I found you, thank God I found you

And I want you
And I need you, now and forever
And I want you
And I need you, now and forever

"As I wrestle with my broken breath
I've got these scratches and sores
I watch you lit up by a machine
This is more than I can afford
It's got me tangled and tongue-tied
Heaving blackened lungs
I pay penance for the things I think
I've lost, and all I've done
So can you guide me, Sandman, with our bodies warm?
The only way I'll lapse into this coma
Is the spark of your sweet storm
The sound of rain in a graveyard
The sound of us escalates
So tell me that you want me, need me
And that it's not too late."

Soon you'll fall asleep
So breathe out the fear right now
All I really want to do is stay in bed with you
And make you happy
Soon you'll fall asleep
So breathe in the night right now
All I really want to do is be inside of you
And make you happy
Make you happy, make you happy
Make you happy, make you happy
