  • It flickered to light
    It turned broke what was right
    It got the roots by the hair
    What was was no longer there

    It blocked out the sun
    It climbed up the stairs
    And then it slipped through the cracks
    I wasn't watching my back

    A commotion
    A commotion
    A commotion
    A commotion

    If it rips you all apart
    The grudge has still got your heart
    If it rips you all apart
    The grudge has still got your heart

    It stalked through the rooms
    And then it tore the sheets off the bed
    It ripped the books off the shelf
    It turned heaven to hell

    It held me down tight
    It took all my fight
    It broke all the windows
    It came flame from the kindle

    A commotion
    A commotion
    A commotion
    A commotion

    If it rips you all apart
    The grudge has still got your heart
    If it rips you all apart
    The grudge has still got your heart

    If it rips you all apart
    The grudge has still got your heart
    If it rips you all apart
    The grudge has still got your heart

    If it rips you all apart
    The grudge has still got your heart
    If it rips you all apart
    The grudge has still got your heart

    The grudge has still got your heart
    The grudge has still got your heart
    The grudge has still got your heart Writer/s: Leslie Feist
