Sink in my skin, like a tattoo,
But pictures can fade,
Like a flower locked in a dark room,
Lie on our backs, talk till we’re new,
But voices will wake us, burst into the bedroom,
I fall in a dive,
Like a kingfisher flies.

I gave you, into the wrong hands,
The wrong hands, you were right to throw your head up,
Gave you into the wrong hands,
Oh my careless heart, oh my careless heart.

Carry my past, caught like a gun,
And sharp, shoot the stars down,
Oh now look what I’ve done.
I fall in a dive,
Like a kingfisher flies.

Gave you, into the wrong hands,
The wrong hands, you were right to throw your head up,
I gave you into the wrong hands,
Oh my careless heart, oh my careless heart.

Send me a wreathe, then I’ll be gone,
For nothing can live when you’re poisoning your first love,
I fall in a dive,
Like a kingfisher flies.

I gave you, into the wrong hands,
The wrong hands, you were right to throw your head up,
Gave you into the wrong hands,
Oh my careless heart, oh my careless heart.
I gave you, into the wrong hands,
The wrong hands, you were right to throw your head up,
Gave you into the wrong hands,
Oh my careless heart, oh my careless heart,
Oh my careless heart.
