Death Of The Cool – Cuts Like A Knife lyrics

I never wrote you any love songs
Except the one I'm singin' now
And you know I'd sing it to your face
If you were standin' in the crowd

You peel back my skin
Reveal the mess of doubt
Yeah, I thought that I knew myself
But then I found out

Your love cuts like a knife
Your love cuts like a knife

You never told me your secrets
Yeah, but I guess that's alright
Yeah, I guess I understand
'Cause when you tried to open up to me
You know I went home and cut myself

And though I used the big knife
Oh, it wasn't as sharp
No, it wasn't as deep
As you cut into my heart

Your love cuts like a knife
Your love cuts like a knife
Your love cuts like
Your love cuts like a knife
Your love cuts

Yeah, you cut right through me
Yeah, you split me in two
If I couldn't live with myself
How could I live with you?

So if someday you forgive me
And open up the door
You know that we could be happy
Because I'm finally all the things you wanted
When you thought I was what you wanted
