I’ve got the cut you’ve got the knife
But you never wanna take the blame it’s mine
Let’s stitch things up and kiss goodnight
I promise I won’t come inside

And if you ever feel the knife
Running down your spine
You’ll know it’s mine
If you never have to feel again that’s fine
And if the lights were too dim
Romantic it may seem
But it’s just me
And I’ve got…

Daylight
So bright
Why’d we stay?
Someday
I’ll find some
Shade for my eyes

Shade for my eyes
Shade for my
Shade for my eyes
My eyes

And if you ever feel the knife
Running down your spine
You’ll know it’s mine
And if you ever feel the knife
And if you ever feel the knife

Shade for my eyes
Shade for my
Shade for my eyes
My eyes

    General CommentI LOVE this song!! & that they're South African makes me love it even more... As to what it means, I don't know. I'm thinking maybe its about getting revenge on a lover?

    "I've got the cut you've got the knife
    But you never wanna take the blame it's mine
    Let's stitch things up and kiss goodnight"
    &&
    "And if you ever feel the knife
    Running down your spine
    You'll know it's mine"

    haha I'm probably wrong. What's with the ���� thingies?
