In the darkest corner of the house
I found a body there
Cold and stiff
Spine in a twist

She left a note,
It read like so:
My dearest one,
Here's what you've done.

I've got your knife inside my back
I've got your rope around my neck
I feel the poison in my veins
Corrode and eat away my brains
I've told you fifteen dozen times
And that's one hundred eighty times
If I can't have you
Then no-one can.

She was an honest girl
(Never told a lie)
Raised with the finest things
(Far too rich to die)

A silver spoon
Gold diamond rings

The sainted mother,
The benefactor,
Of the inheritance,
That I was after

She's got a feeling,
That I'll get even, and
If I can't have you
Then no-one can


I've got your knife inside my back
I've got your rope around my neck
I feel the poison in my veins
Corrode and eat away my brains
I've told you fifeteen dozen times
And that's one hundred eighty times
If I can't have you (oh oh oh)
Then no-one can.

    Song MeaningIt's about a girl who kills her ex-boyfriend because she can't have him.
    The narrator finds the body in a big house, the girl leaves a note next to the body reading
    "My dearest one,
    Here's what you've done.

    I've got your knife inside my back
    I've got your rope around my neck
    I feel the poison in my veins
    Corrode and eat away my brains
    I've told you fifeteen dozen times
    And that's one hundred eighty times
    If I can't have you
    Then no-one can."

    So basically, the "nice, wealthy girl" was actually psycho yup
