Having a bad week?
Let me touch your cheek
I will always love you
Having your face hit
Having your lip split
By the one who loves you

Real love, real love
Real love makes your lungs black
Real love is a heart attack

Showing your mother
To any other
Letting them touch her
Looking up to her
Watching her do her makeup and hair

Real love, real love
Real love makes your lungs black
Real love is a heart attack

Cry like a bird, fly like a baby
Mamma got drunk and daddy went crazy
If your speech slurs, if you feel shaky
Meet me out back, I'll be there waiting

Riding in the back seat
Watching the spit fly and the hummingbird cry
O mamma, o papa
O mamma, o papa
How much blood is worth the draw?
How much blood is worth the draw?

Real love, real love
Real love makes your lungs black

Hummingbird watching
Watching her young thing
Grow up so fast
Looking up to her
Watching her do her makeup and hair
