The Birthday Massacre – Alibis lyrics

I saw you in a photograph.
The answer is in your eyes.
It's dragging me back
To everything else we left behind.

You're hiding inside a perfect life.
A picture of us.
I'm hearing you whisper alibis.

There is a shadow here,
But there's no light behind me.
The stains of blood on the floor
Serve to remind me
The time is drawing near.
Turns like a knife inside me.
I've never wanted it more.
Come stand beside me.

The walls are moving closer now.
This feeling won't wash away.
The message is clear.
"There's nobody here. Just walk away."
I'm waiting for you.
I'm all alone.
And through the wall
I'm hearing you whisper alibis.
Come stand beside me.

There's a shadow that we cast aside,
In the blood that we left behind.
I've never wanted it more.
Come stand beside me.
There was never any light behind.
Feel it turn like a knife inside me.
I've never wanted it more.
Come stand beside me.
