Matchbook Romance – Portrait lyrics

Love, bring me the head of jealousy
His curse is the poison on her lips
A love as certain as a sinking ship
Unstoppable

This isn't a dream
This is what you are
And I'll take the blame
But that won't heal your scars

Look
Look a little closer now
Shut off
You should have known this wasn't a truce
Keep taking your cheap shots
Until I'm black and blue

You should've known better
Than to change your mind
Your tears won't tame your misery
They're the ones that say
Your heart is just a beat
You're just keeping time

This isn't a game
Who do you think you are
I'll take the blame
But that won't heal your scars

Look
Look a little closer now
Shot off
You should have know this wasn't a truce
Did your cheapshot
Turn black and blue

Look
Look a little closer now
Shut off
You should have known this wasn't a truce
Keep taking your cheap shots
Until I'm black and blue

Look
Look a little closer now
Shut off
You should have known this wasn't a truce
Keep taking your cheap shots

Look
Look a little closer now
Shut off
You should have known this wasn't a truce
Keep taking your cheap shots
Until I'm black and blue
