  • I was in the shower so I could not tell my nose was bleeding
    Dripped down my body to the floor right below my feet and
    I looked in the mirror at my face, I thought I had a disease

    And there's a woman with her fingers in my ice box
    She peeked around the corner and asked me if I'm okay
    She put the ice up on my tongue and then it melted away

    Alright, oak floor, soft pine bedroom door, yeah
    Speak easy, make her mine if she's bored, yeah
    And there's dry pine ceiling that is out of my reach

    I woke up and my hands were gone, yeah
    I looked down and my legs were long gone
    I fell for her with my shoulder, but there's nobody there

    I thought she left a note, just the tag on the pillow there
    And then I noticed there's a rag next to my ear
    The clock was ringing, but it wasn't nothing that I could hear

    Alright, yeah
    Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh

    Sometimes someone controls everything about you
    And when they tell you that they just can't live without you
    They ain't lyin', they'll take pieces of you
    And they'll stand above you and walk away, yeah
    That's right and take a part of you with them Writer/s: Jack White
