Lyrics

So now you're mine and it really shows
Give me speed and a place to go
And a knife to bring back what I know
It didn't hurt a bit

I hate this curse of tenderness
So hit me hard and break the spell
That keeps weak and so unreal
No matter how it feels

Sweetness and light in your cold
Scratch your surface with a knife
Just an inch from your life
It's the kindest cut of all

Today I'll take a leap of faith
I hope there's solid ground beneath
Enough to dig a shallow grave
Just like the good ol' days

Sweetness and light in your cold
Scratch your surface with a knife
Just an inch from your life
It's the kindest cut of all
The kindest cut of all

Sweetness and light in your cold
Scratch your surface with a knife
Just an inch from your life
It's the kindest cut of all
Of all
Of all

So now you're mine and it really shows
