  • I don't remember your name
    I don't remember how we met
    We made it home on the train
    But after that I just forget
    You said life is a lie
    As you laid down on the bed
    Then you started to cry
    And sang Bela Lugosi's dead

    You left black lipstick
    Black lipstick on my sheets

    I don't remember your name
    I don't remember how we met
    Drunk fools in the rain
    Was that a promise or just a threat?
    You said you wanted to crawl
    To fall apart is the only way
    Scratched on to the wall
    Whispering, you don't need to stay

    You left black lipstick
    Black lipstick on my sheets
    You left black lipstick
    Black lipstick all over me

    Breaking the mirrors to black out the vision
    Breaking the mirrors so you'll never see
    Breaking the mirrors so there's no decision
    Breaking the mirrors so you'll never be alone
