Darlin' there's a river near the house where I grew up
And I think it might be moving fast enough
And there's a silence there so thick that you could stick a knife in it
Or anything that you've been dreaming of

And you should know that my affections are always true
And my heart's got a tricky valve that beats for nobody but you

And when I decide to kill you
I'll do it with my hands
And fine gloves worth the death of a gentleman
My words may seem mighty hollow
But don't doubt that I can
'Cos I've got long fingers for a woman

Last night I found a note you wrote and left inside my room
And picked apart the words you didn't choose
I wrote out every one and then I hid them around your room
This love is bound with heart and guts and glue

May I say that my intentions are through and through
And there's a twitch in my left eyebrow that tics for nobody but you

And when I decide to kill you
I'll do it with my hands
And fine gloves worth the death of a gentleman
My words may seem mighty hollow
But don't doubt that I can
'Cos I've got long fingers for a woman

If I should seem distracted
Oh, you needn't be confused
'Cos darlin', you have no idea the things I'd do for you
There's a hole that's in the wall there
And I put it there for you
'Cos darlin' you have no idea the things I'd do to you

And when I decide to kill you
I'll do it with my hands
And fine gloves worth the death of a gentleman
My words may seem mighty hollow
But don't doubt that I can
'Cos I've got long fingers for a woman
