See in me the side of you that sometimes makes you jump with fright smiler with knife, it's your big night

Sinking bed all warm and clean only sadness waits for me smiler with knife, you're just in time

Press the blade against my skin never to make love again smiler with knife, it's alright

Surrendered will I am before you I am sick to death of life smiler with knife - alight

If such things weren't meant to be then they would never come to me smiler, oh, don't worry so

Slam-in one-shots gentle pain someone calling out my name sex and love are not the same

Time has frittered long and slow all I am and was will go but where to? and why now?

When my last breath falls away smiler trust me when I say you'll be OK you'll be OK.
