Black And Blue Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Fadin' everything to black and blue
You look a lot like you
Shatter in the blink of an eye
You keep sailin' right on through
Every time you say you're learning
You just look a lot like me
Pale under the blistering sky
White and red, black and blue

You've been waitin' a long time
You've been waitin' a long time
To fall down on your knees
Cut your hands
Cut yourself until you bleed
Just fall asleep next to me

Wait for everyone to go away and in a dimly lit
Room where you've got nothing to hide
Say your goodbyes
Tell yourself we'll read a note that says
"I'm sorry everyone
I'm tired of feelin' nothin' goodbye"

Wash your face, dry your eyes, ohh
'Cause you've been waitin' a long time
You've been waitin' a long long time
To fall down on your knees
Cut your hands
Cut yourself until you bleed
Just fall asleep next to me
Have a good dream I'm fallin' down on my face
I scrape my knees
I scrape my hands until they bleed
'Cause you're fast asleep next to me
Next to me, next to me, next to me
