lyrics

LYRICS:
saying goodbye is death by a thousand cuts with flashbacks waking me up. i get drunk, but it's not enough 'cause the morning comes and you're not my baby. i look through the windows of this love even though we boarded them up. the chandelier's still flickering here 'cause i can't pretend it's okay when it's not: it's death by a thousand cuts.

i dress to kill my time and take the long way home. i ask the traffic lights if it'll be alright and they say "i don't know". what once was ours is no one's now… i see you everywhere, the only thing we share is this small town. you said it was a great love (one for the ages) but if the story's over, why am i still writing pages?

my heart, my hips, my body, my love—i'm trying to find a part of me that you didn't touch. you gave up on me like i was a bad drug and now i'm searching for signs in a haunted club. our songs, our films, united we stand, our country (guess it was a lawless land?)… quiet my fears with the touch of your hand or paper cut stings from our paper-thin plans. my time, my wine, my spirit, my trust… i'm trying to find a part of me you didn't take up. i gave you too much, but it wasn't enough but i'll be alright—it's just a thousand cuts.
