So go on
And I will refrain
And I'll keep on running this never ending race
Maybe next time will be the right time
And maybe next time will be your time

So save your scissors
For someone else's skin
My surface is so tough
I don't think the blade will dig in
Save your strength
Save your wasted time
There's no way that I want you to be left behind
Go on save your scissors
Save your scissors

So why does it always seem
That every time I turn around
Somebody falls in love with me
This has never been my soul intention
And I have never claimed to have patents on such inventions

Just save your scissors
For someone else's skin
My surface is so tough
I don't think the blade will dig in
Save your strength
Save your wasted time
There's no way that I want you to be left behind
Go on save your scissors
Save your scissors

There is something that I must confess to you tonight
To you tonight
And that is I expect nothing less from you tonight
From you tonight

Go on save your scissors
Save your scissors
Save your scissors

    General CommentCity And Colour's first single is "Save Your Scissors", a song that addresses an on-again off-again relationship that Dallas had for many years, in which a girl wanted him to be somebody that he essentially wasn't. "It's sort of a metaphor for girls who have tried to change me from who I am and what I want to be, into what they want. And it's like, no, save your scissors for somebody else. Don't try to change me cause it's not gonna work." In one lyric he asks: "Why does it always seem that every time I turn around, somebody else falls in love with me?" Dallas explains: "I think that a lot of girls tend to think I'm somebody who I'm not, or I'm something different from what I am. I don't say that in a conceited way. I think when you put yourself out in the public eye people think they have a relationship with you that they really don't."



    From an interview he did.

    Either way, it's a beautiful song, and amazing to hear live.
