  • Everyone loves you
    But they don't love you like I do
    And everyone knows you
    But they ain't seen this side of you

    I'm over the measure
    One shot turns into four
    And I end up injured
    As love turns into war

    Ooh, ooh
    Ooh, ooh-oh
    Ooh, ooh
    Ooh, ooh-oh

    When I get over you
    And get that dirt off my shoulder
    Will I look like a fool
    Or just a whole lot older

    Giving myself to you
    Was like giving myself to a chainsaw
    You keep cutting me open wide
    Is it the only thing that you're good for

    Giving myself to you
    Was like giving myself to a chainsaw
    You keep cutting me open wide
    Is it the only thing that you're good for

    I can't remember
    How we started this thing
    But I know I was better
    Before you pulled the strings

    Something to mention
    Before you kill me slow
    I won't be the last one
    The last one, that's for sure

    Ooh, ooh (la la la la)
    Ooh, ooh-oh (la la la la)
    The last one, no (la la la la)
    No, no-oh (la la la la)

    When I get over you
    And get that dirt off my shoulder
    Will I look like a fool
    Or just a whole lot older

    Giving myself to you
    Was like giving myself to a chainsaw
    You keep cutting me open wide
    Is it the only thing that you're good for

    Giving myself to you
    Was like giving myself to a chainsaw
    You keep cutting me open wide
    Is it the only thing that you're good for

    What you gonna do when you've had enough
    What you gonna say when it's all too late
    What you gonna do when you fall in love
    How you gonna feel when he does the same

    What you gonna do when you've had enough
    What you gonna say when it's all too late
    You're staring at the piece that you broke apart
    And you know you can't get it back again

    Giving myself to you
    Was like giving myself to a chainsaw
    You keep cutting me open wide
    Is it the only thing that you're good for

    Giving myself to you
    Was like giving myself to a chainsaw
    You keep cutting me open wide
    Is it the only thing that you're good for

    [Repeat: x8]
    Giving myself to you
    Was like giving myself to a chainsaw

    Giving myself to you
