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

You peeled back my skin
Revealed a mess of doubt
I thought that I knew myself
But then I found out

Your love cuts like a knife

You never told me your secrets
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
It wasn’t as sharp
No, it wasn’t as deep
As you cut into my heart

Your love cuts like a knife

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
I know that we could be perfect
Because I’m finally all the things you wanted
When you thought I was what you wanted
