it's happening again
but this time you know it isn't real
you know it's a mistake
but mistakes are all you ever get
once you thought you'd found a way
but now you know you should have known
nothing ever rhymes
and you know you should have just gone home

the darkness around the corner wore her name
a name that you knew well
you knew that she was trouble
and you knew you just could not leave it alone
and when the invitation came
you knew it was an introduction to the end
so this is how it ends
oh well i guess you should have guessed

it's happening again
but this time there's violence in your eyes
violent and strange they seem to stray
as if they're always on their way
but as they see her shadow edging around the corner
they just don't know where to go
nothing ever rhymes
and you know you should just go home

cold, when you see that girl you get cold
when you see that girl
you thought that your luck would turn
you always thought that your luck would turn
never thought that you'd lose your nerve
you never thought that you'd lose your nerve
but you get cold when you see that girl
you get cold when you see that girl
