You touched my life
With a softness in the night
My wish was your command
Until you ran
Out of love
I tell myself I'm free
Got the chance of living just for me
No need to hurry home
Now that you're gone
CHORUS
Knife
Cuts like a knife
How will I ever heal
I'm so deeply wounded
Knife
Cuts like a knife
You cut away the heart of my life
When I pretend when I smile
To fool my dearest friends
I wonder if they know
It's just a show
I'm on a stage day or night
I go through my charades
But how can I disguise
What's in my eyes
(Repeat CHORUS)
Oh oh oh oh oh ...
I try and try locking up
The pain I feel inside
The pain of wanting you
Wanting you
(Repeat CHORUS)
