Love, bring me the head of jealousy
This curse is the poison on her lips
A love as certain as a sinking ship
Unstoppable

This isn't a dream
This is what you are
And I'll take the blame
But that won't heal your scars

Look
Look a little closer now
And then Shut off
You should have known this wasn't a truce
Keep taking your cheapshots
Till I'm black and blue

You should have known better
Than to change your mind
Your tears won't tame your misery
They're the ones that say
Your heart is just a beat
You're just keeping time

This isn't a game
Who do you think you are
I'll take the blame
But that won't heal your scars

Look
Look a little closer now
Shot off
You should have know this wasn't a truce
Did your cheapshot
Turn black and blue

Look
Look a little closer now
Shot off
You should have know this wasn't a truce
Did your cheapshot

Look
Look a little closer now
Shot off
You should have know this wasn't a truce
Did your cheapshot
Turn black and blue

    General CommentI think this is about a girl who always screws the guy over who is in love with her, but he still stays with her.. and saying her heart is just a beat, keeping time. the love from her is no longer there.

    General Commentlove it....almost fav from c.d but yeah i think this song is about a guy that found out his girl was cheating on him with someone who was jealous of there relationship...maybe even his best friend...and he takes the blame even tho it wasnt his fault

    General CommentI'm not quite sure the line "shot off" in the chorus is completely correct.... maybe it's "Shut up" or "Shut off?" I love this song though, it seriously rocks.
