Unfinished Business

Album: To Lose My Life… (2009)
  • Just give me a second darling to clear my head
    Just put down those scissors baby on this single bed

    The sand in the hourglass is running low
    I came through thunder, the cold wind, the rain and the snow
    To find you awake by your windowsill
    A sight for sore eyes and a view to kill

    I broke down in horror at you standing there
    The glow from the moon shone through cracks in your hair
    I shouted with passion, "I love you so much"
    But feeling my skin, it was cold to the touch

    You whispered, "Where are you?"
    I questioned your doubt
    But soon realized you were talking to God now

    You've got blood on your hands and I know it's mine, I just need more time
    So get off your low and let's dance like we used to
    But there's a light in the distance waiting for me, I will wait for you
    So get off your low, let's kiss like we used to

    I looked in the mirror but something was wrong
    I saw you behind but my reflection was gone
    There was smoke in the fireplace as white as the snow
    A voice beckoned gently, now it's time to go

    A requiem played as you begged for forgiveness
    "Don't touch me", I screamed
    "I've got unfinished business"

    You've got blood on your hands and I know it's mine, I just need more time
    So get off your low and let's dance like we used to
    But there's a light in the distance waiting for me, I will wait for you
    So get off your low, let's kiss like we used to

    You've got blood on your hands and I know it's mine, I just need more time
    So get off your low and let's dance like we used to
    But there's a light in the distance waiting for me, I will wait for you
    So get off your low, let's kiss like we used to Writer/s: CHARLES CAVE, HARRY MCVEIGH, JACK BROWN
