Pause the Tragic Ending

draw me under, cut me open
take my heart, i give to you
call the thunder and bring the storm
hold me close, i beg of you

and pause the tragic ending
for just a moment more
draw the dresser out
and slide it to the door


and burn the air out of the room
close the curtain and kill the lights
only second left to tell you
how i need you every night


and pause the tragic ending
for i'm almost out of breath
whisper in my ear
take a bite upon neck


i'd give you blood
if that's what you need to stay alive
you'll be free and i will die


you've fallen down broken, no sense
no sense, hey, no sense, hey
you've fallen down broken, no sense
no sense, hey, no sense, hey
you've fallen down broken, no sense
no sense, hey, no sense, hey


throw the ashes out to sea
god forbid you, hurt her twice
drink away the taste of me
and in the morning pay the price


pause this tragic ending
running out of things to say
wash the sheet and clear your head, you'll be okay
but bury me deep down in every song you play

the tragic ending
the tragic ending
the tragic ending saves the day
