"Headfirst from a Hangman's Noose" as written by Josef John W Peters, Jona Weinhofen, Kevin Robert Cameron and Sean Robert Kennedy....
I've never compared myself.
And I couldn't care anymore.
I've never had it to hold, so I've got nothing to lose.
Young love left you broken hearted.
"We could have never had us, because I never had you".
So let your eyes tell the tale.
What I was meant to say.
I thought of you for too long.
Now a frozen smile... won't even bring you back.
Your kiss is no longer safe to me anymore.
Your lips have turned into something I don't know anymore.
They are the gates to a vicious tongue.
Your razor wrists won't make this change or go away.
Id never trust those bloodshot eyes...
This love was living with its eyes sewn shut.
At times I'd love to bludgeon you and dance with your corpse.
Yesterday's memories left me weak.
I'm chasing shadows, wasting time, waiting for Vegas to call my name.
Idle thoughts spill constantly, from open mouths, with their eyes sewn shut.
I hope this haunts you like it does me, be-sides and broken smiles won't dance with me.
Idle thoughts spill constantly, from open mouths, with their eyes sewn shut.

    General Comment'this love was living with its eyes sewn shut' about a relationship where they are both ignoring the problems they have. then he realised she turned into something completely different to what he though she was. my best guess....

    General Commentyeah i agree with lori1991
    probably a relationship where neither person is willing to admit problems and are living blindly in this relationship.
    "we could never have us, because i've never had you"
    probably means that he is saying that he never had her-he had her but they didn't know each other and he never had HER- he had this person who he didn't know. I think he is saying "without me knowing who you are, there cannot be a relationship"
    sorry that was so long
    p.s
    "we could never have HAD us, because i've never had you"
    not that the word "had" is significant but i looked in the lyrics book that came with the cd and thats what it says
