"Constant Knot" as written by and Dallas Green....
How much would you bet
That if I tried hard enough
I would spontaneously combust?
I wish I could disappear
And run away from all of my fears
I think I'm coming undone

So stay the night
I promise that I won't bite
'Cause without you there
I don't think I could close my eyes

How do I end up this way?
A constant knot in my gut
Tied with uncertainty and with lust
A classic case, I suppose
A haunted man who can't out run his ghosts
They're in my skin, in my bones

So stay the night
I promise that I won't bite
'Cause without you there
I don't think I could close my eyes

And now I sing

    that I wont bite, cause without you there
    I don't think I could close my eyes"

    General CommentGood job, except combust is one word, and in the last line before the second chorus he says "There in my skin and MY bones." Just a few little things for an OCD guy like me to point out :-).

    This song, as well as the entire cd really speaks from the heart. I love it.

    General CommentHis song is so sad. Like that mistake is weighing down on him forever and he just wants someone to turn to.

    The lyrics are beyond lovely and it's so heart felt.

    General CommentI agree with sakari. like some other of dallas green's songs from this album, you can see regret peeking it's ugly head, and this song is key. and yes, very sadly heartfelt.

    General Comment"question about this song, anyone else have 2 versions of it? "

    i think, but im not sure, you have
    "this sudden injury" as well
    because the first few lines go
    "stay the night, and i promise i won't die.
    without you there, i can, i can't close my eyes"
    or something.
    i just find it weird how its sooo close.
    all well
    city and colour rocks my socks =]
