I watch it trickle from your lips;
Pearls of ruby red soaking up your head until you want to push through,
And then the world turns red,
And the wine tastes sour.
Pushing back the hand until the midnight hour.

Every door is closing behind you;
There's no one left to come and find you.
You're soaking wet, but the file won't dry you.
I'd like to help, but I can't stand by...

And watch you twisting the knife.
They've got you wasting your life.
Can't stop you twisting the knife.

I'd rather turn out all the lights than see you like this.
Caress me with your anger;
Sting me with your kiss.
You've been pushing too hard.
I've been trying too long.
Now I don't believe I have the will to carry on.
You take it one step forward;
Then it's two steps back.
I'd jump the wire, but I'm feeling trapped.
It's other people make you insecure.
I won't surrender like I did before...

And watch you twisting the knife.
They've got you wasting your life.
Can't stop you twisting the knife.
Surrender like I did before;
Twisting the knife.

Sting me with your kiss.
You take it one step forward;
Then it's two steps back.
I'd jump the wire, but I'm feeling trapped.
It's other people make you insecure.
I won't surrender like I did before...

And watch you twisting the knife.
They've got you wasting your life.
Can't stop you twisting the knife.
