Knock the ice up off my bed
Cut back your hand cut back
So I can bleed a little smile
Thats all thats left when heaven splits in two
On a bridge, phantom love, kiss and shove
Have I slept it off, I've been awake for too long

All this time, there's a hole in my ceiling
Where dreams escape, right above my bed take a holiday

Well I'm sick of feeling this way (sick of feeling this way)

So just cut off the lights a while
And kiss me like you wanted to
Then i'll sing in style like a blackheart valentine pill
I need it, but just keep it
I have slept it off, I've been awake for too long

All I needed, all I needed, cause I'm not sleeping anymore
And I will breathe, my hands will shake
Please blow a kiss, for heavens sake
A martyrs smile, plastic and fake
I'm classic and late
Plastic and fake

    General CommentHey dude there's only one bit missing from this song I think, it might be cos I have a different version of the song or something but just after 'I have slept it off, I've been awake for too long.' should be

    Well what did it say?
    I forgot to read the label
    I for got what it said
    But I need it cause I'm not sleeping anymore

    Then it goes into the 'And I will breathe...' part

    Northstar are soooo awesome

    General Commentit's about a sleeping pill? maybe he wants to take it to end his period of being awake, cause hes so fed up with this girl....also seems like since he's been awake for so long that everything is 'plasitic and fake' to him.
    favorite part must be...
    "On a bridge, phantom love, kiss and shove"
    haha he loves her then shoves her or vice versa. good concept.

    General Commentahhh, northstar is amazing. simply amazing. but if I'm not mistaken the name of this song is just "black heart valentine" (minus the pill).
