Cauterize – Why This Last Dance lyrics

As we dance
Here in this empty apartment
Echoes of laughter
Will haunt me for after
Put your memories in boxes
Cut all your losses
Romance left this place long ago
If these walls could talk
Then they'd tell me it's time to go

You gave this place so much colour
I don't know why I did not see that before
You gave life to this place
Without you it's empty space

As we kiss,
Knowing that it's our last one
Put sheets on the mattress,
Sleep hasn't found us
Tear the curtains from the window let the world see this last dance
And now,
What was left for us
Turn all the lights out
Lock the door behind us

You gave this place so much colour,
I don't know why I did not see that before
You gave life to this place,
Without you it's empty space

Someone else gave me pictures of holding the world
Talking to cover the screams in the hall
Singing you to sleep when you're hurt from the fall
And somehow I will miss this... all

Lets burn this place down
Scatter the ashes
Paint it with gasoline
Start throwing matches
Somewhere in this wreck remains dying love

You gave this place so much colour
I don't know why I did not see that before
You gave life to this place
Without you it's empty space

Someone else gave me pictures of holding the world
Talking to cover the screams in the hall
Singing you to sleep when you're hurt from the fall
And somehow I will miss this... all

As we dance
Knowing that it's our last one
If these walls could talk
They'd tell us it's time to go
