Burn Lyrics – Phillipa soo

Burn Lyrics – Phillipa soo

I saved every letter you wrote me
From the moment I read them
I knew you were mine
You said you were mine
I thought you were mine

Do you know what Angelica said
When we saw your first letter arrive?

She said
“Be careful with that one, love
He will do what it takes to survive.”

You and your words flooded my senses
Your sentences left me defenseless
You built me palaces out of paragraphs
You built cathedrals

I’m re-reading the letters you wrote me
I’m searching and scanning for answers

In every line
For some kind of sign

And when you were mine

The world seemed to


You published the letters she wrote you
You told the whole world how you brought
This girl into our bed

In clearing your name, you have ruined our lives

Do you know what Angelica said
When she read what you’d done?
She said
“You have married an Icarus
He has flown too close to the sun.”You and your words, obsessed with your legacy…
Your sentences border on senseless
And you are paranoid in every paragraph
How they perceive you

You, you, you…

I’m erasing myself from the narrative
Let future historians wonder how Eliza
Reacted when you broke her heart

You have torn it all apart

I am watching it
Watching it burn

The world has no right to my heart
The world has no place in our bed
They don’t get to know what I said

I’m burning the memories
Burning the letters that might have redeemed you

You forfeit
all rights to my heart

You forfeit the place in our bed
You sleep in your office instead

With only the memories
Of when you were mine

I hope that you burn
