"The Dagger" as written by and Robert Conrad Flynn Howard Jones....
Your tongue is a dagger
And I am bleeding
My faded dreams were all for you

And with one word, and with just one word
Choking the life, I breathe my last
And with one look, and with just one look
You hold the key to this heart of glass

This is the withering
I’m aging years in moments
This is the path that leads
To my demise

Your tongue is a dagger
And I am bleeding
My faded dreams were all for you

And with one word, and with just one word
You’ve shattered my world and crushed my soul
And with one look, and with just one look
The rising sun has never felt so cold

This is the suffering
The echoes of your voice haunt
This faded memory
Is my demise

Your tongue is a dagger
And I am bleeding
My faded dreams were all for...

And I feel this all too slow
And I’ve been here for so long
And I feel so empty
As you walk away


What have you done?
What have you done?
What have you done?
What have you done?


I would give it all away
For the chance to shine again
I would freely pay the price
For the touch of your hand

And I feel this all too slow
And I’ve been here for so long
And I feel so empty
As you walk away

What have you done?
What have you become?
All is lost
We are left with sorrow

What have you done?
What have you become?
All is lost
We are left with sorrow

What have you done?
What have you done?
What have you done?
What have you done?
