As I traced the knife down the small your back
I heard you gasping for air as the blade cut into your throat
Maybe I should have wrote you a note or at least a letter
We both know it didn’t have to end this way
I admit, baby, maybe I could have found less violent things to say
But I think I’ll let the blade do the talking

You were beautiful when you were breathing
But even more so when you’re lying still
I remember what you said on your dying breath
“I’ll always hate you”

Staring into your shut swollen eyes
Now I’ve finally realized that you meant more to me than this
A lifeless body lying formless on the floor
I swear to god this has never happened before
You meant more to me than this
So I’ll leave you with this bloody kiss
As I whisper my goodbye

If I could I would replay this night
Because right now I cant catch my breath
I just don’t deserve to breathe
My stomach turned at the sight of your body violently shaking
I pray to god that I’ll be waking from this nightmare soon
The shape of my formless lover lying pale
The air in this room is growing stale and I am losing breath
I pray that death will finally take me too
Because I know I won’t forget you

You were beautiful when you were breathing
But even more so when you’re lying still
I remember what you said on your dying breath
“I’ll always hate you”

Staring into your shut swollen eyes
Now I’ve finally realized that you meant more to me than this
A lifeless body lying formless on the floor
I swear to god this has never happened before
You meant more to me than this
So I’ll leave you with this bloody kiss
As I whisper my goodbye

Please someone lock me up and throw away the keys
I don’t deserve to see the light of day anymore
If I could I would pull the knife out of your back
But that would leave you bleeding even more
And coughing up your blood as your lungs slowly turn to mud
As the red poison flows through out your veins
If this pain could be arranged in such a way to be so beautiful
Then why would I ever stop it?

You were beautiful when you were breathing
But even more so when you’re lying still
I remember what you said on your dying breath
“I’ll always hate you”

Staring into your shut swollen eyes
Now I’ve finally realized that you meant more to me than this
A lifeless body lying formless on the floor
I swear to god this has never happened before
You meant more to me than this
So I’ll leave you with this bloody kiss
As I whisper my goodbye

You’re beautiful when you’re asleep
You’re beautiful when you’re asleep
But I liked you better when you would hold my hand
You’re beautiful when you’re asleep
You’re beautiful when you’re asleep
But I liked you better when you would hold my hand

You were beautiful when you were breathing
But even more so when you’re lying still
I remember what you said on your dying breath
“I’ll always hate you”

Staring into your shut swollen eyes
Now I’ve finally realized that you meant more to me than this
A lifeless body lying formless on the floor
I swear to god this has never happened before
You meant more to me than this
So I’ll leave you with this bloody kiss
As I whisper my goodbye
