razorblades and cigarettes


Written: 2003

Razorblades and cigarettes
And empty bottles strewn
Sitting here I think of you
I dream your fingers in my hands
And promises of promised lands
And I wonder
Well I don't know why we hurt ourselves
With alcohol and such
Sometimes you need to drown a little
And I love you very much

I used to watch the way you'd smile
The changes in your face
The passions I'd imagine there
But the fires I saw your eyes reflect
Were the burning tyres around my neck
And I wonder
Well I don't know why we hurt ourselves
With razorblades and such
Sometimes you need to bleed a little
And I love you very much
The time I spent just missing you
Longing from afar
The ways I tried to walk to you
But this broken glass on which I'd crawl
Was it just to you or to anyone at all
And I wonder
Well I don't know why we hurt ourselves
With cigarettes and such
Sometimes you need to die a little
And I love you very much

I don't know why we hurt ourselves
Or why we fall in love too much
Sometimes you need to dance a little
And I loved you very much
