"A Sharp Knife" as written by Tomek Archer, Nicholas Routledge, Michael Di Francesco and Matthew Van Schie....
Oo, waiting on a sharp knife
It won't be too long
If you hold or die
And oo, waiting on a sharp knife
So you had a hard time
It was there for us to share
No one's satisfied

We're two far sides at night
It's alright
It's a sign
We're two far sides at night
It's alright
It's a sign

Oo, living in a half life
Come and go they all know
It was just for show
And oo, running to the start lines
And don't you stop when you get there
No one's satisfied

Oo, so you had a hard time (always waiting)
Oo, waiting on a sharp knife (always waiting)
Oo, so you had a hard time (always waiting)
Oo, waiting on a sharp knife (always waiting)

Oo, slipping on some sweet smile
And talk out loud and don't pretend
You are everything
And oo, so you thought we couldn't tell
The one is clear, the two is near
Maybe soon you'll be

Oo, so you had a hard time (always waiting)
Oo, waiting on a sharp knife (always waiting)
Oo, so you had a hard time (always waiting)
Oo, waiting on a sharp knife (always waiting)

A sharp knife
A sharp knife

    My Interpretationawesome song. great conclusion to a great album.

    i get the feeling though that "waiting on a sharp knife" is a metaphor for the final blow that ends something. here, the relationship between two people. but what is so beautiful about this song, is that this relationship hasn't even begun yet. ("running to the start line.")

    my other thought, is maybe the sharp knife is the relationship itself, somehow doomed to tragedy. i can't help but get visions of romeo and julliet (oh happy dagger, i suppose). either way, the lyrics are superb.
