Chalk Outline

I've been cursed
I've been crossed
I've been beaten by the ones
That get me off

I've been cut
I've been opened up
I've been shattered by the ones
I thought I loved

You left me here
Like a chalk outline
On the sidewalk
Waiting for the rain to
Wash away
(Wash away)

You keep coming back
To the scene of the crime
But the dead can't speak
And there's nothing left to say
Anyway
All you left behind
Is a chalk outline

I've been cold
In the crypt
But not as cold as the words
Across your lips

You'll be sorry baby
Someday
When you reach across the bed
Where my body used to lay

You left me here
Like a chalk outline
On the sidewalk
Waiting for the rain to
Wash away
(Wash away)

You keep coming back
To the scene of the crime
But the dead can't speak
And there's nothing left to say
Anyway
All you left behind
Is a chalk outline
(All you left behind
Is a chalk outline)

(All you left behind)

You left me here
Like a chalk outline
On the sidewalk
Waiting for the rain to
Wash away
(Wash away)

You keep coming back
To the scene of the crime
But the dead can't speak
And there's nothing left to say
Anyway
All you left behind
Is a chalk outline
