  • We scratched our names
    In that oak tree
    'Cause I loved you
    And you loved me
    A jagged little heart so the whole town knew it
    Carved in the bark with an arrow through it
    Well I came out here to see it one more time

    And I got my chainsaw
    Oh you know it's got to go, it's such a shame y'all
    But I ain't gonna be happy 'til those names fall
    And I'm sittin' on a stump

    Love is shady
    Love is tragic
    It's hard to bury the hatchet
    Holdin' a chainsaw

    I guess all those years
    They don't mean a thing
    Now I can't wait
    To count those rings
    Nothing left of us but dust and splinters
    A big pile of wood to keep me warm through the winter
    'Cause I don't have you

    But I got my chainsaw
    Oh you know it's got to go, it's such a shame y'all
    But I ain't gonna be happy 'til those names fall
    And I'm sittin' on a stump

    Love is shady
    Love is tragic
    It's hard to bury the hatchet
    Holdin' a chainsaw

    Just a lil' old chainsaw

    I remember what you said that night
    That you would love me for the rest of your life
    We wrote forever with a pocketknife
    But forever's goin' down tonight

    'Cause I got my chainsaw
    It's got to go, it's such a shame doll
    But I ain't gonna be happy 'til those names fall
    And I'm sittin' on a stump

    Love is shady
    Love is tragic
    It's hard to bury the hatchet

    Love is shady
    Love is tragic
    It's hard to bury the hatchet
    Holdin' a chainsaw

Susanna Hoffs - "Eternal Flame"They're Playing My Song

The Prince-penned "Manic Monday" was the first song The Bangles heard coming from a car radio, but "Eternal Flame" is closest to Susanna's heart, perhaps because she sang it in "various states of undress."
