"Our Work Of Art" as written by and Steve Miller Jason Maffucci....
Blood stained sheets,
What have I gotten myself into this time?
I close my eyes and I believe you.
If I should die I'll never leave you.

I wish that I could walk away
guilt rests in my hands
I know that it is for the better
I never said that i'd comprimise
between fact or fiction
there's so much better out there
than you and me
I could end this in seconds
I know it but I don't dare

Another sentence this all could be over
Your words are like weapons why can't you protect me

I wish that you would walk away
red still lines your hands
I know that it's still for the better
I never said that i'd stand aside
between you and the door
there's nothing better out there
than you and me
I could end this in seconds
I know it but I don't dare

Blood stained sheets.
It didn't matter when I was calling out your name
I felt the wound grow ever slowly
closer than you'd ever hold me

Its a work of art
the way this fell apart
was the design too faded from the start
or was the artist just too blinded by this
no its common sense I lack the confidence
still i'll confess all these things to you

take a look at yourself
and tell me what do you see
I'd take a bullet for you
you'd put a bullet through me
and as I lay on the floor
with this hole in my chest
how will you walk from the truth
with all that blood on your dress

And everything that you want
is everything that I need
I would have gave it to you
but you'd have take it from me
and every word that you said
it brought me closer to sin
I close my eyes and pretend its all fading

    General CommentThis Song Is definetly about a failing relationship. Apparently, the guys being used. And He knows it, he's hurt, but he just can't walk away. He's really regretting everything he did, but he still loves her.

    General CommentJust replace how this is about a guy and a girl's relationship.
    and make it about a guy and guy/girl's friendship.
    and it'll work out just fine for me :)
    but i still like the song.

    how will you walk from the truth
    with all that blood on your dress pants?
    hahaha.

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite Just Surrender songs.

    "Another sentence this all could be over
    Your words are like weapons why can't you protect me"

    He means that she could either break him or make him with the next sentence she says. Basically, he's coming to the realization that the same girl who made him feel amazing and safe can make him feel cornered.
