"Nail In My Coffin" as written by and James Hince Alison Mosshart....
I am no better at this than you are
Unfinished business maybe, do love
I can't change myself into you dear
What you are to me is far too unclear

Could be a nail in my coffin and I don't need another one
Could be a nail in my coffin and Lord knows I ain't ready yet
Could be a nail in my coffin and I don't need another one
Could be a line I'm crossing and I am never gonna get back from

Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh

I am no better at this than you are
Loneliness never truly leaves me alone
I have made mistakes I can't take back home
I love you just not the way you want

Could be a nail in my coffin and I don't need another one
Could be a nail in my coffin and Lord knows I ain't ready yet
Could be a nail in my coffin and I don't need another one
Could be a line I'm crossing and I am never gonna get back from

Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh

Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh

Could be a nail in my coffin and I don't need another one
Could be a nail in my coffin and Lord knows I ain't ready yet
Could be a nail in my coffin and I don't need another one
Could be a line I'm crossing and I am never gonna get back from

Could be a nail in my coffin and I don't need another one
Could be a nail in my coffin and Lord knows I ain't ready yet
Could be a nail in my coffin and I don't need another one
Could be a line I'm crossing and I am never gonna get back from

Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh

    General CommentI might be mistaken but the correct lyrics are:

    "Quit being a nail in my coffin."

    Could be?... I guess that's how makes more sense to me.

    I'm loving this album! great comeback, was about time.

    General CommentNo it's definitely "could be a nail in my coffin" not "quit being..."

    I think it's about feeling you have to prove yourself to someone but not seeing why you should feel that way
