LOVE LIES BLEEDING

poor you

what will you do

when there's no other like this one

though it's so cruel, acutely painful

excruciating, greatly ungrateful

 

it's highly suspicious

what is your secret

there must be a motive

a hidden agenda

no-one's that stupid and altruistic 

to love so deeply

and so completely

oh no, you're crazy

you cannot help it

‘cause without this torture life has no meaning

there is no reason to go on

 

waste away or die of disappointment

those you love the most inflict the deepest cut

waste away or die of disappointment

one you love the most will surely break your heart

 

again your love lies bleeding

but your heart's still breathing

and just one "last time" you're noble and forgiving

so your love lies bleeding

but your heart's still breathing

and it tears you apart

 

poor me

now i agree

there is no other like this one

though it's so cruel, acutely painful

excruciating, greatly ungrateful

it's nothing suspicious

there is no secret

i don't have any motive 

a hidden agenda 

i must be stupid and altruistic

to love so deeply and so completely

oh yes, i'm crazy

i cannot help it

‘cause without this torture life has no meaning

there is no reason to go on

 

oh, poor you and me
