Barely a secret
Rusted metal
Anxiously
Too sick to fix it
Hope the lock fits
With her key

And there’s just one more thing
To fake before you go
I’ll stare at you
You’ll stare at me
And fill my hand with pins and needles

Don’t go soft
On breaking my heart
Don’t go soft
On breaking my heart

You’re like rust
I’m falling apart
Tonight, tonight
Tonight, tonight

Blunt so you mean it
Slice it even just to see
What shade's the middle
Was it faded
With disease

Don’t go soft
On breaking my heart
Don’t go soft
On breaking my heart

And there’s just one more thing
To fake before you go
I’ll stare at you
You’ll stare at me
And fill my hand with pins and needles

Don’t go soft
On breaking my heart
Don’t go soft
On breaking my heart

You’re like rust
I’m falling apart
Tonight, tonight
Tonight, tonight

There’s just one more thing
To fake before you go
I’ll stare at you
You’ll stare at me
And fill my hand with pins and needles

Don’t go soft
On breaking my heart
Don’t go soft
On breaking my heart

You’re like rust
I’m falling apart
You’re like rust
I’m falling apart
Tonight, tonight
Tonight, tonight
