lyrics

this anticipation is murder
feels like the devil's breathing down my neck
I'm egotistical, still ashamed
and saving my last breath to voice my regrets

Just give me something to take me away from myself
there must be someone to take me away from myself
I just want someone to love me like i was somebody else
wait no wait, no I want someone else

so what if you stole my heart,
if you stole my heart?
it's just another worthless heart
to a thief in the dark.
now you're a thief in the dark
hanging close to the walls like a creeping assasin
i've got your knife in my back and still haven't learned my lesson
and i'm dying to dance, but you're still, scared to death.
I'll hold my breath til you're ready
I'll hold my breath til you're ready

somebody love me to death

it gets worse, your touch is like glass in sugar
the light hurts, my skin is all pins and needles
if I let go, I may be falling, but I'm falling free
if I let go, I may be falling, but I'm falling free
if I let go, I may be falling, but I'm falling free
still I leave, somehow, Incomplete

somebody love me to death

The Public was formed in New Orleans in 2003 by drummer Bryan Besse and guitarist Jack Champagne. Singer Travis Shuler and bassist Ryan Plattsmier joined the lineup and they began work on a few songs influenced by UK post-punk,90s Britpop and American underground alt-rock. They broke up in 2010 a year after losing Plattsmier to suicide. Bassist Ronan Bradley played for the last year of the group. ... more
