  • And the sky was made of amethyst
    And all the stars were just like little fish
    You should learn when to go
    You should learn how to say no

    Might last a day, yeah
    Mine is forever
    Might last a day, yeah
    Mine is forever

    When they get what they want, and they never want it again
    And they get what they want, and they never want it again
    Go on, take everything, take everything, I want you to
    Go on, take everything, take everything, I want you to

    And the sky was all violet
    I want it again, but violent, more violent
    Yeah, I'm the one with no soul
    One above and one below

    Might last a day, yeah
    Mine is forever
    Might last a day, yeah
    Mine is forever

    When they get what they want, and they never want it again
    When they get what they want, and they never want it again
    Go on, take everything, take everything, I want you to
    Go on, take everything, take everything, I dare you to

    I told you from the start just how this would end
    When I get what I want, then I never want it again
    Go on, take everything, take everything, I want you to
    Go on, take everything, take everything, I want you to
    It's my lie, you're mine, you're mine

    Go on, take everything, take everything, I want you to
    Go on, take everything, take everything, I want you to
    Go on, take everything, take everything, I want you to
    Go on, take everything, take everything
    Take everything, take everything Writer/s: Courtney M Love, Eric T. Erlandson
