Ain't Love Grand

Album: Suicide Notes and Butterfly Kisses (2002)
  • It's so hard to see when your eyes are rolling
    In the back of your head
    It's even harder to speak when everything you say
    Just comes out wrong

    Gutted like a pig, all you want is the world to bleed
    Someone somewhere stole your desire
    The pain akin', to being punched in the throat
    And stabbed in the chest

    You would rather bleed than be without her
    Gone are the tender whispers dancing in your ears
    Replaced with lackluster memories you cry
    Your screams play in your empty room

    It's so hard to see when your eyes are rolling
    In the back of your head
    It's even harder to speak when everything you say
    Just comes out wrong

    Your bed swallows you whole as the days bleed together
    Torment on the lips of a loved one
    And if you try hard enough, you can almost taste her
    Feel her pass and scream, oh God why me

    You would rather bleed than be without her
    Gone are the tender whispers dancing in your ears
    Replaced with lackluster memories you cry
    Your screams play in your empty room

    It's so hard to see when your eyes are rolling
    In the back of your head
    It's even harder to speak when everything you say
    Just comes out wrong
