Tell me what did you see in her
Cause I've been living in sweet despair
I don't really know what's in the cards of life
All I really know is my tears won't dry tonight

Love was hidden within your smoke
Blinding lights and disheartened hope
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

Won't stay is all it really takes
To take my breath away
Go on put the knife in
Run away, don't need you anyway
Although I wish you'd stay
Go on put the knife in

You've been foolish
And I've been stupid
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Won't stay is all it really takes
To take my breath away

I get voices inside my head
Something's different inside this bed
I don't really know what's in the cards of life
All I really know is my tears won't dry tonight
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

Won't stay is all it really takes
To take my breath away
Go on put the knife in
Run away, don't need you anyway
Although I wish you'd stay

You've been foolish
And I've been stupid
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

Won't stay Is all it really takes
To take my breath away

I'll be crying you'll be screaming, we'll come tumbling down
(Just thought you and I weren't another face in the crowd?)
Rather wake up feeling empty (cause from this point on?)
You're on your own now, you're on your own now

You'll be sorry, I won't worry
I'm ok, better now
Just remember what you did and how it didn't work out
I'd rather wake up feeling empty (caused from this point on?)
You're on your own now, you're on your own now

Won't stay is all it really takes
To take my breath away
Go on put the knife in

Run away, don't need you anyway
Although I wish you'd stay
Go on put the knife in

Won't stay is all it really takes
To take my breath away
Go on put the knife in

You've been foolish
And I've been stupid
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

Won't stay is all it really takes
To take my breath away
Go on put the knife in
