"Katherine, Please"

hey, wait.
before you walk out
for the last time,
would you do me this favor?

hey, wait.
before you walk out
for the last time,
would you do me this favor?
and take, take this paring knife,
and thrust it deep, so deep into my side.
and be sure,
when you draw it from my skin,
that my eyes, they meet yours,
and you grin.

-chorus-
because while seeing is believing,
sometimes looks can be deceiving.
so when i tell you i'm through with you,
don't be fooled.
i'll be six feet under when i'm over you.

let's toast.
pour one last drink to us.
make mine one part tonic,
two parts poison.
and be sure,
when the glass falls from my lips,
that my eyes, they meet yours,
and you grin.

-chorus-

already ripped my heart
out of my chest.
i watched you watch me bleed.
just what do you have planned
for what is left?
take whatever you need.

hey, wait.
before you walk out
for the last time,
would you do me this favor?

i'm over you. -3x-

you.

    General CommentThis song is awesome. WHY HAS NO ONE COMMENTED.

    I think it's pretty self explanatory, but still awesome.

    General CommentAlright here we go:

    -------------------------------------
    ------"hey, wait.--------------------
    ------before you walk out----------
    ------for the last time,-------------
    ------would you do me this favor?"

    Talking to a girl who he's been in a relationship with before, but now she is leaving him for good.


    ----------------------------------------------------
    ------"and take, take this paring knife,---------
    ------and thrust it deep, so deep into my side.
    ------and be sure,--------------------------------
    ------when you draw it from my skin,-----------
    ------that my eyes, they meet yours,-----------
    ------and you grin."------------------------------

    The singer is describing how much he is being hurt by the girl and her leaving him, but he also is implying that she doesn't even care at all about how much she is making him suffer. Same for all the other verses.


    ---------------------------------------------------
    ------"because while seeing is believing,------
    ------sometimes looks can be deceiving.-----
    ------so when i tell you i'm through with you,-
    ------don't be fooled.---------------------------
    ------i'll be six feet under when i'm over you."
    ---------------------------------------------------

    The singer is saying that even though he may look fine, he is really hurting inside like no other. The second part is saying how even though the singer says he is over her, he'll be dead before that really is true.


    ---------------------------------------
    -----"already ripped my heart------
    -----out of my chest.----------------
    -----i watched you watch me bleed.
    -----just what do you have planned
    -----for what is left?-----------------
    -----take whatever you need."-----
    ---------------------------------------

    The singer says how the girl has already broken his heart and he doesn't really care about anything anymore and that she can do whatever now.


    ---------------------------
    -----"i'm over you."-----
    ---------------------------

    I'm not really sure if the singer is actually telling the truth here, because the rest of the song completely contradicts it. Hopefully, for his sake, he is though.


    Great song, I could totally relate to it when my ex girlfriend broke up with me. I totally cried while listening to this a million times.
