Cover Your Tracks – Striking Matches lyrics

[Verse 1]
I walk the world by myself,
I got this soul that I can’t sell.
Casting stones again like you want,
Like the empty heart left in my chest.
I'll leave you here, I’m too far gone,
This is moving on.

[Pre-Chorus]
I don’t wanna be (I don’t wanna be),
I don’t wanna be the reason you can’t feel anymore.

[Chorus]
I can’t see you, I can’t breathe,
In the back of your car, you made me believe.
I’m the failure and the disease,
I’m the con to your score,
Just a pawn on your board.

[Verse 2]
I walk the world by myself,
Striking matches just to watch them burn.
I’ve got a soul that I can’t sell
In Hell I’m running out.

[Chorus]
I can’t see you, I can’t breathe,
In the back of your car, you made me believe.
I’m the failure and the disease,
I’m the con to your score,
Just a pawn on your board.
(Oh oh oh whoa, Oh oh oh whoa).
I’m the con to your score,
Just a pawn on your board.
(Oh oh oh whoa, Oh oh oh whoa).
Just a pawn on your board.

[Bridge]
I don’t wanna be (you don’t have to be),
I don’t wanna be this man anymore.


[Chorus]
I can’t see you, I can’t breathe,
In the back of your car, you made me believe.
I’m the failure and the disease,
I’m the con to your score,
Just a pawn on your board.
(Oh oh oh whoa, Oh oh oh whoa).
I’m the con to your score,
Just a pawn on your board.
(Oh oh oh whoa, Oh oh oh whoa).
Just a pawn on your board.

[Outro]
I walk the world by myself,
I got this soul that I can’t sell.
