  • I've been cursed, I've been crossed
    I've been beaten by the ones that get me off
    I've been cut, I've been opened up
    I've been shattered by the ones I thought I loved

    You left me here like a chalk outline
    On the sidewalk waiting for the rain to wash away, wash away
    You keep coming back to the scene of the crime
    But the dead can't speak and there's nothing left to say anyway
    All you left behind is a chalk outline

    I've been cold in the crypt
    But not as the cold as the words across your lips
    You'll be sorry baby some day
    When you reach across the bed where my body used to lay

    You left me here like a chalk outline
    On the sidewalk waiting for the rain to wash away, wash away
    You keep coming back to the scene of the crime
    But the dead can't speak and there's nothing left to say anyway
    All you left behind is a chalk outline
    All you left behind is a chalk outline (All you left behind)

    You left me here like a chalk outline
    On the sidewalk waiting for the rain to wash away, wash away
    You keep coming back to the scene of the crime
    But the dead can't speak and there's nothing left to say anyway
    All you left behind is a chalk outline Writer/s: ADAM GONTIER, BARRY STOCK, BRAD WALST, CRAIG WISEMAN, NEIL SANDERSON
