  • I work in the dead of night
    When the roads are quiet
    No one is around
    To track my moves

    Race in the end of lights
    To find the gate is open
    She's waiting in the room
    I just slip on through

    You get in
    You get done
    And then you get gone
    You never leave a trace or show your face
    You get gone

    Should have turned around
    And left before the sun came up again
    But the sun came up again

    Enter the morning light
    To find the day is burning the curtains and the wine
    In a little white room
    No, I'm not alone
    Her head is heavy on me
    She's sleeping like a child
    What could I do?

    You get in
    You get done
    And then you get gone
    You never leave a trace or show your face
    You get gone

    Should have turned around
    And left before the sun came up again
    But the sun came up again

    I was a killer, was the best they'd ever seen
    I'd steal your heart before you ever heard a thing
    I'm an assassin and I had a job to do
    Little did I know that girl was an assassin too

    Suddenly I'm in over my head and I can hardly breathe
    Suddenly I'm floating over her bed and I feel everything
    Suddenly I know exactly what I did, but I cannot move a thing
    Suddenly I know exactly what I'd done and what it's gonna mean to me, mean to me
    I'm gone

    I was a killer, was the best they'd ever seen
    I'd steal your heart before you ever heard a thing
    I'm an assassin and I had a job to do
    Little did I know that girl was an assassin too

    She's an assassin
    She's an assassin
    She's an assassin
    She's an assassin and she had a job to do Writer/s: John Mayer
