Man Man – Whalebones tab

He felt a curse around his neck
Like a yoke he knows, he never forgets.
The way she cut through his bed
Like a snake would bite through a cave of flesh
But he holds her 
though she's broken
He swear he don't care 
where she's been

thats the progression throughout most of the song

He's tired of being human
He wears her close to the bone as though she were his own skin
He shoots from the heart instead of the head
His mouth and his words they rarely connect
He looks to the past and where his tongue's tread
And he knows he's meant the opposite

But she holds him like an infant
Though it breaks her in half to know he'll wake like a man
Sold on cold indifference
When he reaches for her she's gone
She slips like the wind through blackened sails, but

Who are we to love at all?

I hope you don't mind
If I hang on the light post.
If I hang on to my hopes oh, this time
Although I've been warned
I'll probably get burned
I'd rather get burned than to not try

I hope you don't mind
If I hang on the light post
I hang on to my hopes all this time
'Cause you won't let it go
