[Verse 1]
The days and days go by I know
It’s hard to breathe
There’s no habit you’ll ever outgrow
Oh, you and your selfishness
Don’t waste my time

[Chorus]
I hope this hurts
Because it hurt to write
I hate thinking of you
And all the blood that you drew
Now you’re alone
Lost in your bed tonight
You can’t let go
I told you so

[Verse 2]
Somehow it’s still hard to take a breath and watch you fall
There you are; wailing wall
There you are; wailing wall
Did I waste my time on you?
Did I waste it?
I’ve wasted time

[Chorus]
I hope this hurts
Because it hurt to write
I hate thinking of you
And all the blood that you drew
Now you’re alone
Lost in your bed tonight
You can’t let go
I told you so

[Breakdown/Bridge]
Burn my heart
Oh, it hurts
Burn my heart
Oh God, it hurts
You bark at what you see in the mirror
You bark at what you see in the mirror
And you’ll never stop

That’s just how you need it to be
But take your hands off me

[Chorus]
I hope you hurt
This hurt to write
I hate thinking of you
And all the blood that you drew
Now you’re alone
Lost in your bed tonight
You can’t let go
I told you so

[Verse 3]
I spent a year of my life
Under your carving knife
And nobody ever knew
I had surrendered control
Your soul is like a black hole
Now I’m letting go
I told you so

The Carving Knife Lyrics

Belle Haven – The Carving Knife Lyrics

[Verse 1]
The days and days go by I know
It’s hard to breathe
There’s no habit you’ll ever outgrow
Oh, you and your selfishness
Don’t waste my time

[Chorus]
I hope this hurts
Because it hurt to write
I hate thinking of you
And all the blood that you drew
Now you’re alone
Lost in your bed tonight
You can’t let go
I told you so

[Verse 2]
Somehow it’s still hard to take a breath and watch you fall
There you are; wailing wall
There you are; wailing wall
Did I waste my time on you?
Did I waste it?
I’ve wasted time

[Chorus]
I hope this hurts
Because it hurt to write
I hate thinking of you
And all the blood that you drew
Now you’re alone
Lost in your bed tonight
You can’t let go
I told you so

[Breakdown/Bridge]
Burn my heart
Oh, it hurts
Burn my heart
Oh God, it hurts
You bark at what you see in the mirror
You bark at what you see in the mirror
And you’ll never stop

That’s just how you need it to be
But take your hands off me

[Chorus]
I hope you hurt
This hurt to write
I hate thinking of you
And all the blood that you drew
Now you’re alone
Lost in your bed tonight
You can’t let go
I told you so

[Verse 3]
I spent a year of my life
Under your carving knife
And nobody ever knew
I had surrendered control
Your soul is like a black hole
Now I’m letting go
I told you so
