You never thought it'd hurt so bad
Bring me a remedy
You never thought it'd hurt so bad
Never thought it'd feel so right
Bringing you to your knees
Never thought it'd feel so right

It's the edge of the dawn
When she looks in your eyes
And she wants what is hers
Before the light

And she runs on her own
And you'll hurt before you know
Not a sweet alibi
When you get your bloody dose
In the still of the night
It is there you'll feel it most
In this dark carnival
Where the end is close

(I'll tell you it won't hurt)
Never thought I'd hurt so bad
Funny how the story ends
Remember the beginning
Funny how the story ends
Should never have looked so close
(Should never have looked so close)
I can see all your cracks
Should never have looked so close

It's the edge of the dawn
When she looks in your eyes
And she wants
What is hers
Before the light
And she runs on her own
And you'll hurt before you know
Not a sweet alibi
When you get your bloody dose
In the still of the night
It is there you'll feel it most
In this dark carnival
Where the end is close

And we'll fight to the death
Everyone has an hour
And the weapons
So we'll fight to the death
Now it is final
For what?
Who knows?
Tell me it won't...

And she runs on her own
And you'll hurt before you know
Not a sweet alibi
When you get your bloody dose
In the still of the night
It is there you'll feel it most
In this dark carnival
Where the end is close

Tell me it won't hurt
Give me a remedy
Give me a remedy
I'll tell you it won’t hurt
I'll tell you it won’t hurt

    General CommentThis song is pretty dark, and deep. Can't really say better words then the lyrics themself for what it means. But if kind of scares me.

    General Comment"Remember the beginning

    This may mean she regrets seeking too much knowledge or too much of something and doing so much in the beginning to get it, or find out about it. "remember the beginning" may be saying how all was going well and then "funny how the story ends" shows that the result was negative and probably unexpected.
    "should never have looked so close" i think this means that she shouldn't have looked so close. haha :) as in, shouldn't have tried so hard to seek what she wanted.. in other words, maybe, shouldn't have been too greedy? or naive?

    "i can see all your cracks" this may not neccessarily be said to another person. it may mean that now she realises what she's done and now can see all the flaws and bad things of the thing that she wanted so much
