Like Knives
12:33 a.m. 2005-02-20

Your words are like knives
They peel the skin and pierce my soul
Your body will learn to love
And now your heart may still let go

And I will blame myself
And I will blame myself
For holding on to what I hope will keep you by my side
And I will blame myself
My sheets are stained with
Memories of your soft kiss
Now this is all I have
Deeper than I can let go
And I am aware

And I will blame myself
And I will blame myself
For holding on to what I hoped would keep you by my side
And I will blame myself

Can I have you?
Can I have you?
Why can't I have you?

"Like Knives"
