Go get your ribbon box
Go get your wounded heart
Seeing spiders, I'm told they never lie.
Go get your brother love
Go get your losing head
Seeing fire, I'm told it never burns.

I want it all, I pull you back. I want it all.

Cry baby, cry baby, cry. Soaking down your face.
Cry baby, cry baby, and you can't understand how I could just kill a man.

No to your letters love
No to unsturdy hands
Sleeping eyes, I'm told they never lie.

No to your key of rust
No to your raging words
Sleeping tires, I'm told they never drive.

(Prechorus and chorus repeats)

If I wanted to stay, you won't stand in my way
But I'm choosing to leave with your heart on my sleeve
It feels too good without you

(Chorus outro)

    this song is talking about.. well she uses alot of play on words! but she says in the chorus "you don't understand how i could just kill a man" she never says i'll kill you.. it's like shes saying show me your love and saying go away-"go get your brother head-go get your losing head" so she did want to stay he won't say otherwise but she doesn't so like i said play on words! I love this song!XD

    this is about a man who cheats
    yes she knows he's lying but it's kind of hard to believe it so she cries because there isn't anything else to do but cry till she learns she could leave with his heart on her sleeve and she knows it's ok to be alone on her own .

    I think this song is about how her man cheats on her and she knows he's lying to her. So she's cries about and she wants to just kill him. So she leaves with his heart on her sleeve (because she killed him) and it feels good.
