[Fmaj7]  So love is this, [C]  A three-inch blade.

You pulled it [Fmaj7]from my lips,  and my [C]knees gave way

First [Fmaj7]nothing came to mind. I have [Fmaj7add6]steadied Father Time

to [C]watch your face.

I [Fmaj7]could not feel a thing.  My [Fmaj7add6]ears began to ring

and the [C]seconds dripped away.

I don't [C}think I can move,  I'm spread eagle on the floor 

I'm [F]slightly confused,  The blood is so soft and warm

Your [Am]face in a frame of darkness dimness shrinking

but I [Am]smile because I loved you without ever [G]thinking.


Sounds like I'm [C}plugging my ears so badly I want to hear

the [F]last thing you say just in case it's something all about me

I [Am]hear you through the sound of my heart leaking

What[G]ever you do, it will make me happy [F]  [Fmaj7][F][Fmaj7][F]


[Fmajsus2] Things seem to be falling down
My hands are shaking
I watch you muse about
the wound you gave me


I took it like a kiss
now you're staring down at this 
the choice you've made
I cannot feel a thing
my ears have started ringing
I drip away

(chorus)


I forgot how to breath

I don't make a sound

I want to hear

the last thing you say just in

case it's something all about me

I hear you through the sound of my heart leaking

Whatever you do, it will make me happy




I don’t think I can move – 
I am spread eagle on the floor 
I am slightly confused, 
but the blood is so soft and warm 
Your face, in the frame of dimness, fading 
I smile because I loved you without even thinking 

I forget how to breathe, 
I don’t make a sound; I want to hear 
The last things you say, 
just in case it’s something all about me 
I hear you through the sound of my heart breaking 
But whatever you do, it will make me happy 

Spread eagle on the floor – 
so soft and warm 
I don’t think I can move – 
I am spread eagle on the floor 
I am slightly confused, 
but the blood is so soft and warm 
Your face, in the frame of dimness, weakens 
I smile because I loved you without even thinking 
The last I can see, 
I don’t make a sound; 
I want to hear The last things you say, 
just in case it’s something all about me 
I hear you through the sound of my heart breaking 
But whatever you do, it will make me happy 
I don’t think I can move – 
I am spread eagle on the floor 
I am slightly confused, 
but the blood is so soft and warm 
The last I can see, 
I don’t make a sound; I want to hear 
The last things you say, 
just in case it’s something all about me 
I hear you through the sound of my heart breaking 
But whatever you do, it will make me happy
