This love has taken its toll on me.
My heart is breaking in front of me and I have no choice.
Come on skinny love just last the year. Pour a little salt, we were never here.
Tell my love to wreck it all. Cut out all the ropes and let me fall.
Take it away, I never had it anyway.
Take it away and everything will be okay.
Please don’t go crazy if I tell you the truth, no you don’t know what happened and you never will.
Baby let me explain something it’s all down to drugs at least I remember taking them and not a lot else.
Opened up her heart, unlocked the lock that kept it dark.
Lover, please do not fall to your knees it’s not like I believe in ever lasting love.
And the rocks melt with the sun.
While the sands of life shall run.
Don’t cry child, you’ve got so much more to live for.
(I hope this isn’t true.)
Don’t cry child, you’ve got something I would die for.
There’s a house across the river but alas, I cannot swim. I’ll live my life regretting that I never jumped in.
There’s a boy across the river but alas, I cannot swim. I never will get to put my arms around him.
He holds me in his big arms, drunk and I am seeing stars.
Everybody’s starry eyed.
Are you trying to tell me something with your eyes? All I wanna do now is lay down and die.
If you’re gonna do it, you better do it right or my heart won’t stop swelling.
I heard that you like the bad girls, honey is that true?
It’s better than I ever even knew.
It’s you, it’s you. It’s all for you.
They say that the world was built for two.
The sea wants to take me, the knife wants to slit me. Do you think you can help me?
If you’re so clever, then why are you on your own tonight?
Ever has it been that love knows not its own depth until the hour of separation.
Put me out ‘cause I’m on fucking fire.
The most that I can do for you is keep on lying.
Throw out my heart and get a new one.
Next thing, we’re touching. You look at me it’s like you hit me with lightening.
I was spinning free with a little sweet and simple numbing me.
The sweetness will not be concerned with me.
Hold on to me, I’ll hold on to you. It’s something we both need to do.
I’m carrying bags of my own, and you still had arms open wide.
In violent frustration, she cries out to God or just no-one.
Is there a point to this madness? And all that she was is just a tragedy.
I guess I remember every glance you shot me.
Hit me, and knock me out and let me go back to sleep.
All I ever wanted was to be good, and it’s all turned out so bad.
I take one ‘cause you left me.
When there’s nothing left to burn you have to set yourself on fire.
All of that time you thought I was sad, I was trying to remember your name.
Things just get so crazy, living life gets hard to do.
I would gladly hit the road get up and go if I knew that someday it would lead me back to you.
