Lyrics

Like an old man walks
To the end of his life
And he's carrying his bag of bloody knives
Pass them out and says "hold them tight"
"Here's a weight too sharp to hold"

So I'll take true love
And I'll cut it up with scissors
And I'll throw it in the fireplace
We can disappear together
Cut by a weight too sharp to hold

And with a burned soul
Healing is painful
Asked to forgive when you're still angry
If I can't heal my heart, forgive me

So I'll take true love
And I'll cut it up with scissors
And I'll throw it in the fireplace
We can disappear together
Cut by a weight too sharp to hold

So surround yourself with good people
I know it's painful but we can stand
And if this man can't walk
Lend him a hand

And with a burned soul
Healing is painful
Asked to forgive when you're still angry
If I can't heal my heart, forgive me
