She asked if we even had tonight.
I said don't ask if you don't want to know.
She said I was a sinking ship
and then she disappeared beneath the waves.
Man I'm so far overboard
None of those lines are going to be long enough.
She hid the knives because of me,
That's okay, we can cut the ice with our teeth.
We only have tonight
We don't even have tonight
We've only got these razorblades and these clichés
And we're back behind the eightball again.
We don't even have tonight.
Heat the glass until the colors dance,
Until the optical illusion shatters in your hand,
And then lick the pieces clean,
Make them sparkle like the diamonds we could never be.
Hammer the nail into the vein until the spiderweb spreads up your arm,
Church bells ring, it's Sunday morning...
You've never been so beautiful,
You've never been beautiful at all.
Of course we don't have tonight, we never did.
