Verse1

You had a beauty, undeniable
Brought my defenses to the ground
I had a feeling, indescribable
Made me question all my doubt
We had a passion, unbreakable
Two hearts have never been so close
Now the scars are unmistakable
Just when I needed you the most

Chorus:

Love is the knife you used to cut me
Twisted inside and sharpened by the lies
Gone are the nights you used to touch me
Soft on my skin, I'll never hurt that good again
- Only one heart survives, when love is the knife

Verse 2

The way it ended was unthinkable
A better man just would have stayed
Words on your lips, unbelievable
Throwing my heart down on your blade

Chorus
