Gallery Piece Lyrics

I wanna be your love
I wanna make you cry
And sweep you off your feet

I wanna hurt your pride
I wanna slap your face
I wanna paint your nails
I wanna make you scream
I wanna braid your hair
I wanna kiss your friends
I wanna make you laugh

    i believe it's someone who's sadistic being obsessive over their lover. they might get a certain feeling when they receive distress from who they're singing about. its not really a healthy relationship but i still love this song (when its slowed+reverb). it reminds me of the creepypastas XD

    In my opinion this song is about an overly obsessive, manipulative relationship with romantic intent

    I think the song's about a victim of a toxic relationship. They definitely love or loved the person they are with but after being hurt over and over again they start to have mixed feelings, they start to want to hurt the other person and at the same time they still love (or think they love) this person.

    I personally think it’s a manipulative mindset towards someone the narrator has a confusing and/or toxic relationship towards. I don’t think the narrator has actual romantic or sexual feelings, but instead thinks they do.

    I think it's about the kind of lust that makes you want to be one with your lover. Hence the lyrics about sexual relations and romantic intent.

    I think it’s about a toxic friend relationship, where one of the friends haves a lot of envy for the other
