It’s not the kind of thing you can paraphrase so try to stay with me here

if i were the murder
if i were the one you found
so romantic in those books you read
would you run to me

would you hold me
like you hold them dear
so romantic are those books you read
would you run to me

and when i go insane
you’ll be the one they find so complacent

just an example of expressiveness
added to my ongoing laundry list
of these hangups of yours

if i were the murder
if i were the one you found
so romantic in those books you read
would you run to me

would you hold me
like I hold you dear
so romantic are those eyes I read
would you run to me
