It's like a thousand paper cuts soaked in vinegar.
That's the way it feels when I see him touching her.
It's like falling face first into a bed of broken glass.
And that's the way it felt when we shared our last dance.

It's like a thousand paper cuts soaked in vinegar.
That's the way it feels when I see him touching her.
It's like falling face first into a bed of broken glass.
And that's the way it felt when we shared our last dance.
Our last dance.

What makes you think that I'd enjoy this triangle?
I would rather be left alone.
What makes you think that I'd enjoy playing your games?
I would rather you stay at home.

It's like a new year's eve and no one to kiss.
I'd rather swim in champagne until the bottle tips.
Just as long as I don't have to hear her voice.
I will ring in the new year alone but not by choice.
But not by choice.

What makes you think that I'd enjoy this triangle?
I would rather be left alone.
What makes you think that I'd enjoy playing your games?
I would rather you stay at home.

Everything went as planned.
You failed miserably.
Atleast I got what I wanted
And you're happy.
Now I apoligize for my bitterness
But tell me dear what did you expect?

    General Commentthe end goes
    "but could you tell me my dear, what did you expect?" and the end of the chorus is "stayED at home" not "stay"

    but my this song is beautiful. it has a real bright eyes feel/sound to it...the way he sings and stuff. plus the recording quality just gives it a feel. i am so in love with old old spill canvas and it just amazes me how ridiculously talented he's always been.

    General Commentblamelove, it's funny you mention bright eyes. I saw The Spill Canvas in concert and Nick said something along the lines of "Sorry we can't play the same stuff all the time. If you want that go listen to some bright eyes" Not his exact words. But something along those lines

    This song is amazing. I think it'd about a girl who is playing him. She has another guy on the side. The person doesn't want to be involved in it. But it's too late because he is emotionally involved with her "What makes you think that I'd enjoy this triangle?
    I would rather be left alone.
    What makes you think that I'd enjoy playing your games?
    I would rather you stay at home."
