You dont know how much I adore
This damp rag soaked in choloroform
It makes it so hard to ignore
'Cause I can never keep your attention

I'm not one to make threats
I've been reduced to promises
I lie to myself cause I do it best
I'm not honest with my intentions

So when the blindfold starts to slip, and
The rope starts to rip, and
I slowly start to give, and
Girl, you know I'm sorry

But tonight I'll wait until
I know you're fast asleep
To poison you with memories
Of you and me
I pray you die slowly
So I can be the last thing you see
You'll see

Girl, you're busy and thats fine
But theres on thing I gotta get off my mind I,
Won't take too much of your time
I promise this won't last long, no
I used to be your biggest fan, you
Used to say I was your man,
Now if I can't have you, no one can
I'll be the last boy you hang up on

So when the blindfold starts to slip and
The rope starts to rip and
I slowly start to give and
Girl, you know I'm sorry

But tonight I'll wait until
I know you're fast asleep
To poison you with memories
Of you and me
I pray you die slowly
So I can be the last thing you see

Oh, you'll see

She's losing consciousness
And gaining confidence
It's starting to make sense
woah woah oh
She's covered in fingerprints
From her lips to her hips
All I wanted was one more kiss
woah woah

She's losing consciousness
I'm gaining confidence
It's starting to make sense
woah woah oh
She's covered in fingerprints
From her lips to her hips
All I wanted was one more kiss
woah woah oh

Tonight I'll wait until
I know you're fast asleep
To poison you with memories
Of you and me
I pray you die slowly [die slowly]
So I can be the last thing you see
I pray you die slowly [die slowly]
So i can be the last thing you see
I pray you die slowly
So i can be the last thing you see

    General CommentI just think the girl's getting raped, not killed. This song is so creepy, but I love it insanely.

    General CommentI'm pretty sure everything here is perfect, although I'm not certain that he says "cloakroom" in the second line.
    If you think you know that he says something else, please feel free to correct me. (Y) Nice one.

    General CommentThe second line is, "this damp rag soaked in choloroform"..
    And the name of this song is "Her Eyes Say Yes, But The Restraining Order Says No", not just "Her Eyes Say Yes".. lyrics for this are also listed under the song "Untitled" because that's what it was before it got this name. :)

    General CommentActually a lot is wrong. I haven't looked at the "official" lyrics, but from memory, I believe the right lyrics are:

    You dont know how much I adore
    This damp rag soaked in Chloroform
    It makes me so hard to ignore
    'Cause I can never keep your attention

    I'm not one to make threats
    I've been reduced to promises
    I lie to myself cause I do it best
    I'm not honest with my intentions

    So when the blindfold starts to slip, and
    The rope starts to rip, and
    I slowly start to give in, girl
    You know I'm sorry

    But tonight I'll wait until
    I know you're fast asleep
    To poison you with memories
    Of you and me
    I pray you die slowly
    So I can be the last thing you see
    You'll see

    Girl, you're busy and thats fine
    But there's on thing I gotta get off my mind I,
    Won't take too much of your time
    I promise this won't last long, no
    I used to be your biggest fan, you
    Used to say I was your man,
    Now if I can't have you, no one can
    I'll be the last boy you hang up on

    So when the blindfold starts to slip and
    The rope starts to rip and
    I slowly start to give in, girl
    You know I'm sorry

    But tonight I'll wait until
    I know you're fast asleep
    To poison you with memories
    Of you and me
    I pray you die slowly
    So I can be the last thing you see

    Oh, you'll see

    She's losing consciousness
    I'm gaining confidence
    It's starting to make sense
    woah woah oh
    She's covered in fingerprints
    From her lips to her hips
    All I wanted was one more kiss
    woah woah

    She's losing consciousness
    I'm gaining confidence
    It's starting to make sense
    woah woah oh

    General CommentWhy do I always end up feeling bad for the disturbed song write rather than the victim?

    General CommentHe's not disturbed. Jeez you take things too seriously. It doesn't mean her really wants the chick to die.

    General Commenti'm not really sure what he means by killing her,
    taking her life, or making sure she never loves again.
    it could be either, but i see it much better as taking a life..
    although maybe i'm making it too literal.

    General CommentI think this song is about a guy who found out about his girlfriend cheating on him, or anything parallel to that caliber.

    "Girl, you're busy and thats fine
    But theres one thing I gotta get off my mind I,
    Won't take too much of your time
    I promise this won't last long..."


    I think this was prior to him knowing that she cheated on him.


    "...,no
    I used to be your biggest fan, you
    Used to say I was your man,
    Now if I can't have you, no one can
    I'll be the last boy you hang up on"


    and this is after he finds out.



    "She's losing consciousness
    I'm gaining confidence
    It's starting to make sense
    woah woah oh
    She's covered in fingerprints
    From her lips to her hips
    All I wanted was one more kiss
    woah woah oh"



    And this is the twist in the story. Instead of her intentionally cheating on him
    she was raped, if you will. However, it was too late and he already 'killed' her.
    A: Killed as in... You know, killed.
    B: Killed as in... He forever ruined their relationship.





    Tonight I'll wait until
    I know you're fast asleep
    To poison you with memories
    Of you and me
    I pray you die slowly [die slowly]
    So I can be the last thing you see
    I pray you die slowly [die slowly]
    So i can be the last thing you see
    I pray you die slowly
    So i can be the last thing you see


    And now that he's found out that she didn't cheat on him, he's feeling bad.
    A: so he lies next to her on a bed waiting for her death.




    Just to let everyone know...
    I know this interpretation was awfully done. I just wanted to steer away from the whole,
    "he killed her indefinitely" thing.
