When it's something inside
I could never say a word quite right
And you never believe
That you wanted much more from me
That a comfort inside
And a sedated girl by your side
And there is no need to lie
All the truth it will come out in minds, In rhymes, and
reprise once again

Broken hearts are yours and mine,
Crooked teeth from empty smiles
I'll take just what you prescribe
Medicated forced reply

Broken hearts are yours and mine,
Crooked teeth from empty smiles
I'll take just what you prescribe
Medicated forced reply, reply

I don't want to
Love me like you used to (x4)

    General CommentI think these are more correct: the 1st bit comes straight from the lyric sheet provided in the EP. Unfortunately, she didn't write the "broken heart" bit in the lyrics sheet, so it's up to our ears to figure out. I think I nailed it though. She doesn't pronounce a lot of syllables, even though she writes them in the lyrics.

    When there's something inside
    I can never say a word quite right
    And I never believed
    That you wanted much more from me
    Than a comfort inside
    And a sedated girl by your side
    And there's no need to lie
    All our truths, they will come out in lines and rhymes and reprise once again

    Broken hearts of yours and mine,
    Crooked teeth from empty smiles
    I'll take just what you prescribed
    Medicated forced reply

    I don't want to
    Love me like you used to do

    General CommentThanks alot for the help! I tried searching for lyrics everywhere with no luck, so I tried figuting them by what I thought I heard. I bought the EP on iTunes so no booklet for me. Either way Swan Song is epic, and definitely the best song on this EP in my opinion.
