I did everything you did to me to you
But I?m out of ammunition
So I?ll take these words and fire then into your chest
Find a new place for them to rest
I Sieze up your insides scarring your flesh
Open up and let them in


I?ll write your name across the wall
With all the blood that spills from my heart
Break my limbs and strech my skin
Until my hands can
reach across the floor
Feel for this pile of broken glass
I?ll hand you the sharpest one
To place it right in my back
Yeah!

You did everything to me I did to you
This is the last song that your getting
Cuz we?re through
The only thing left perfect
Was things we put between us
Cuz you know I?m always right
And your postcards are saying
How good it feels not to have you here

I?ll write your name across the wall
With all the blood that spills from my heart
Break my limbs and strech my skin
Until my hands can
reach across the floor
Feel for this pile of broken glass
I?ll hand you the sharpest one
To place it right in my back


So far so good
It takes a miracle
You?re only half as good as someone to hear me in this well
Your last word isn?t

I?ll write your name across the wall
With all the blood that spills from my heart
Break my limbs and strech my skin
Until my hands can
reach across the floor
Feel for this pile of broken glass

I?ll write your name across the wall
With all the blood that spills from my heart
Break my limbs and strech my skin
Until my hands can
reach across the floor
Feel for this pile of broken glass
I?ll hand you the sharpest one
To place it right in my back

    General CommentI'll write your name across the wall
    With all the blood that spills from my heart
    Break my limbs and strech my skin
    Until my hands can
    reach across the floor
    Feel for this pile of broken glass
    I'll hand you the sharpest one
    To place it right in my back

    General CommentI can't believe there hasn't been as many comments on this song. Its the first song I heard by Halifax and what made me realize what an amazing band they are. I haven't been listening to them too long so I don't know too much about them, but I think the song is another break up song. By looking at the chorus, she has no feelings for him anymore, yet he still cares for her greatly.
    Then at other times he's glad she's gone...

    "You did everything to me I did to you
    This is the last song that your getting
    Cuz we're through
    The only thing left perfect
    Was things we put between us
    Cuz you know I?m always right
    And your postcards are saying
    How good it feels not to have you here"

    I think its just a song about his mixed feelings about this girl.
