Twist The Knife Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Tenderly, tenderly
Please take my breath from me
Into the fountains
And up from the graves

Tearfully, joyfully
Burn what is left of me
I don't want these burdens
I've handsomely

You'll be my guest
And I'll let you stay
Leave me the check
I'll pay with the rest of my life
Twist the knife

Carefully, quietly
You took what's young from me
I didn't deserve it
I gave it away

Cowardly, thoughtlessly
You walk away from me
And I'll tear my heart out
To save you the day

And you'll be my guest
And I'll let you stay
Leave me the check
I'll pay with the rest of my life
Twist the knife

Tenderly, tenderly
Please take my breath from me
Into the fountain
And up from the graves
