little hints of summer shining through
pouring from a window bathed in blue

and i can't stand the rain of the storm
this time i should be letting go

you shook me all night
i slept 'till daylight
and now i'm bleeding black and blue
it's time to go now
burnt hearts will leave you
your name is now a black tattoo
from me to you

presidents warned me about you
and all those little things you like to do
i just painted my windows black
one minute from it turning back

you shook me all night
i slept till daylight
and now im bleeding black and blue
its time to go now
burnt hearts will leave you
your name is now a black tattoo
from me to you
from me to you
from me to you yeah
hey! From me to you
hey!

    General CommentGrinspoon back to their rockin best. Could this song possibly be about drug/alcohol addiction, I only just thought of that now but it seems to fit.
