AFI – We've Got The Knife lyrics

You've got your pretty face
You've got disarming eyes
You've got such social grace
I've got such pretty spies
I found you lost, misplaced
I loved that lovely guise

I said I'd try my luck and you said
"Well you don't, you don't have to try."

I forgot that night
What you said that night
"I had the most exquisite time."
Well you got that right
But it's not the whole story
I want it all
I court the loveliest of crimes
Say it, as if it were true
We've got the knife you left behind
Play it just like you do
I wanna hear you mean it
When you say I'm not next in line.
I court the loveliest of crimes
Save it cuz we've got the knife

You've got your pretty face
You've got your stunning glow
You've got exquisite taste
I've got the marks to show

You said you'd shoot the stars
But bullets make you blush
Turns out you like to play
Play with knives
And I hear that it gives you a rush

Well we've got the knife
Yeah we've got the knife
I've got the knife you left behind
Well we've got the knife
Now I want the whole story
I want it all
I court the loveliest of crimes
Say it, as if it were true
We've got the knife you left behind.
Play it just like you do
I wanna hear you mean it
When you say I'm not next in line.
I court the loveliest of crimes
Save it cuz we've got the knife

I thought you looked familiar
I'd seen your face long before that night
Now I wait, for you were no stranger
No stranger to taking a life

I court the loveliest of crimes
Say it, as if it were true
We've got the knife you left behind.
Play it just like you do
I wanna hear you mean it
When you say I'm not next in line.
I court the loveliest of crimes
Save it cuz we've got the knife
