Love In The Attic lyrics - Cauterize

Time will tell I'm not well
Take me to the attic
Lock me up show me hell
Just let me have it
You are the sweetest thing
You're always taking care of me
It took the softest hands
To put me back together again

She loves to dance in the rain
It's the sound of it that makes her wet
She melts when I say her name
Pin her to the wall and say

Use me baby
Abuse me maybe tie me to the bed post
And leave for a few days
Tell me you love me
As you torture and taunt me
Make me hurt so bad
That it has to feel good when you stop

Show me all don't you hide
Tell me all your secrets
It's ok don't be shy
We're all a little twisted
You are the cutest thing
You're always looking out for me
It took the greenest eyes
To make me see the beauty again

And if you really love me
You would do all this to show me
This might be the only way
That I can feel again

You are the sweetest thing I have ever known
Whisper me your secrets I won't tell, they'll never know
You are the cutest thing I have ever seen
Tell me all your dreams
Can't tell what you mean to me

Closer lyrics - cauterize

"Disguises" Version

What started out as desire, turned into a lover's tryst
Who knew a moth and a flame could ever spawn a love like this
Now you need something to taste
Something just a little bit more sweet
But I am sour and more sour
Every time that our lips meet

If you're a butterfly I'm suicide by insecticide
If I am kerosene then you're a spark just begging to ignite

Never meant to cut so deep (Just enough to bleed)
Feel the sting as you get closer (Closer and closer to me)
Don't let me hold something so delicate (I'll shatter it with a word)
Don't say a thing as we get closer and closer
Damn, this is gonna hurt

The ghost of a pathetic past is haunting me here more and more
The skeletons are laughing at me through the closet door
And now past lovers share these covers
Sleeping with my enemies
Thoughts of others come between us
Trigger fits of jealousy

If you're a butterfly I'm suicide by insecticide
If I am kerosene then you're a spark just begging to ignite

Never meant to cut so deep (Just enough to bleed)
Feel the sting as you get closer (Closer and closer to me)
Don't let me hold something so delicate (I'll shatter it with a word)
Don't say a thing as we get closer and closer
Damn, this is gonna hurt

You can paint me pretty colors
And dress me how you like
I'm just an ugly moth in love
In a butterfly disguise

I have seen the end so many times I've played it in my mind
And I am scared to death I never want to see your dark side

If you're a butterfly I'm suicide by insecticide
If I am kerosene then you're a spark just begging to ignite

Never meant to cut so deep (Just enough to bleed)
Feel the sting as you get closer (Closer and closer to me)
Don't let me hold something so delicate (I'll shatter it with a word)
Don't say a thing as we get closer and closer
Damn, this is gonna hurt

Never meant to cut so deep (Just enough to bleed)
Don't say a thing as we get closer and closer
Damn, this is gonna hurt

Don't Stop Now lyrics - Cauterize

God I love that sound
You know it drives me wild
How I need your laugh
Addicted to your smile
Now I crave those lips
And the way that they kiss
You give me something to miss

Pull me in close
Don't let me go
I'll try to run cause it's all I know
But here I am show me how
Whatever this is don't stop it now

Tell me this will always feel brand new
Again and again like a beautiful flower in bloom
Tell me this will always feel like this
Over and over don't blink cause you might miss

With the softest touch
You got me shiverin'
Tease me with your skin
Come on let me in
Shut the bedroom door
Take me on the floor
You got me begging for more

I'm not sure what this is
But I think I like it
I really think I like this
Whatever this is don't stop it now

I can taste it
As the sweat falls from your neck
And the perfume leaves a sting I won't forget
As you're sliding back into your dress
I become a nervous wreck
Cause I'm waiting patiently to see
If you'll be leaving me
You'll be leaving me

Minor Key Symphony lyrics - Cauterize

Got a postcard, a postcard from my better place
And it read, "I wish you were here, I wish you were"
And the soundtrack, the soundtrack from a better night
And it sang, "I wish you were here. You should have stayed here"

As life leaves my eyes
I realize I must have died
It looks like I didn't make it through the night
I never got to say goodbye
I'll never get to say anything at all again to the world
That barely knew I was alive
Sing a requiem for me
Make it sad but sweet
A song about release
A minor key symphony

Found a letter, a letter from my dear old friend
And it said, "I wish you were here, I wish you were"
And a prayer, a prayer in a familiar voice
And she wept, "I wish you were here, why can't you be here?"

As life leaves my eyes
I realize I must have died
It looks like I didn't make it through the night
I never got to say goodbye
I'll never get to say anything at all again to the world
That barely knew I was alive
Sing a requiem for me
Make it sad but sweet
A song about release
A minor key symphony

I got your flowers today
So perfectly arranged
With a card attached, "I'm sorry you could not stay"
They came a little late, I had to wait till they died
There's no tears up here
But I'm sure that I would have cried.

To everyone I've loved
To all who once loved me
I never meant to leave

I never got to say goodbye
I'll never get to say anything at all again to the world
That barely knew I was alive
Sing a requiem for me
Make it sad but sweet
A song about release
A minor key symphony

Sing a requiem for me
Make it sad but sweet
A song about release
A minor key symphony

Dare You To Scream lyrics - Cauterize

Poor another drink for me
I like it better when I'm numb
Something's gotta give
These conversations make me dumb
You look so good when your scared
It turns me on when you fear for your life

I couldn't love you any better
You turned me into a killer
And I'm sorry but you're all out of luck tonight
Baby your time is up
Something's got a hold of me, doesn't want you to breathe
Stand over you and watch you bleed. I'll be the last thing you see
Go ahead I dare you to scream
No one can hear but me
Pleading won't get you anywhere,
When I decided not to care

Don't waste another breathe on me
Your gonna need everyone
Don't waste your time w/ this
Your dying moments almost done
There is no time for last words
Your life should be flashing right about now

I couldn't love you any better
You turned me into a killer
And I'm sorry but you're all out of luck tonight
Baby your time is up
Something's got a hold of me, doesn't want you to breathe
Stand over you and watch you bleed. I'll be the last thing you see
Go ahead I dare you to scream
No one can hear but me
Pleading won't get you anywhere,
When I decided not to care

I've decided not to care
I've decided not to care
I've decided not to care

Like Romeo and Juliet, we're dying in the end.
We never loved each other, at least I never did
If you did you had a sick way of showing it
Star crossed lovers and the blackest of skies
Had a dream about the 2 of us, one of us died
I'm sorry you had to die like this tonight

I couldn't love you any better
I couldn't love you any better
You turned me into a killer
You turned me into a killer
And I'm sorry but you're all out of luck tonight
You've run outta luck tonight
Baby your time is up
Something's got a hold of me, doesn't want you to breathe
Stand over you and watch you bleed. I'll be the last thing you see
Go ahead I dare you to scream
No one can hear but me
Pleading won't get you anywhere,
When I decided not to care

The Devil In Lace lyrics - Cauterize

Sweat drenched skin covered in white lace
devilish accomplice in lingerie
tonight, tonight revenge has a face
and she's gonna have her way
open windows, unlocked doors
secrets left on bedroom floors
we'll stay in here under these sheets
playing this game of twisted hide and seek

[Pre-Chorus:]
Don't try to run she'll find you
Don't make this hurt more than it has to
Just a kiss her taste could cure me
I need a fix for my sweet tooth craving

[Chorus:]
I'm doing this purely for revenge
loathe every moan and creak in the bed
I've gotta say I'm quite impressed
how fast she fell out of that dress
every dirty word she whispered
and every sick thing she screamed
I hope they echo off your walls
I hope they haunt your every dream

Deep breaths with the cruelest intentions
a motive we're not gonna mention
revenge, revenge is a girl I know
and she can't just let this go
through the keyholes off the walls
echoes chasing down the halls
evidence spread all around
patiently waiting, waiting to be found

[Pre-Chorus]

[Chorus]

your every dream
your every dream

I won't just stab your back
I've got blueprints for attack
and it won't be quick, I'll tell you this
I think you know me better than that

With surgical precision
I'll make a small incision
directly to the side of your spine
I'm taking back what's mine
[x2]

[Chorus x2]

your every dream
your every dream

Porcelain lyrics - Cauterize

Sat up for hours, thoughts of a lover,
I'll probably never get a chance to hold again.
All of my days spent, waiting for nights, with her again, again.

And I'm, sharing a drink with a memory, and a laugh with an empty seat.
Do you still look the same? Will you still look at me the same?
Cause I know that I don't, I've gotten so old in these last few years.
And I'd rather be fighting with you than sleeping here next to her.

Don't let me fall I'll break, what a mess I'd make.
Pathetic pieces on your floor, will cut your feet forever more.
You're porcelain, such fragile skin,
Just let me hold you. I'll be gentle. I won't drop you.
This time I'll be careful.

Forget for just one second that this is not alright.
Let's drink to feeling nothing, at least just for tonight.
Stay for one more, pass out on the floor just like we used to do,
It got so hot in your room.

Don't let me fall I'll break, what a mess I'd make.
Pathetic pieces on your floor, will cut your feet forever more.
You're porcelain, such fragile skin,
Just let me hold you. I'll be gentle. I won't drop you.
This time I'll be careful.

And I can't let it go, This Phantom pain I'm feeling,
And the hurt wont leave me alone, and I'm tired of sleeping with ghosts.

Fell asleep with your ghost woke up with a headache.
From a cure that's only temporary, and in the morning always fails me.
Don't let me fall I'll break, what a mess I'd make.
Pathetic pieces on your floor, will cut your feet forever more.
You're porcelain, such fragile skin,
Just let me hold you. I'll be gentle. I won't drop you.
This time I'll be careful.

Wake To The Sun lyrics - Cauterize

This gloomy weather doesn't break it any
Break it anymore
The sun abandoned us for blue skies somewhere
Blue skies somewhere warm
The world outside my window is scratching at my door
There's only stories
Of what life was like before

(Take me away) Where the skies aren't
(Shades of grey) Baby, let's
(Make our escape) To a place where
We can wake to the sun again

Board the windows up its cold as hell
Its cold as hell out there
Light some candles need to shed some light
To shed some light in here
The streets are cold and damp the trees are dark and bare
This dead season, it seems to last right through the year

(Take me away) Where the skies aren't
(Shades of grey) Baby, let's
(Make our escape) To a place where
We can wake to the sun again

Let's leave it all behind us
Find a nice little island
We can live like a story
That ends like a fairytale
Leave all of your possessions
Forget all that you thought you knew
So we can live like a movie
That ends like we want it to

And I wanna go
Now now now now
[x3]
And I wanna go

Let's leave it all behind us
Find a nice little island
Where we can live like a story
That ends like a fairytale

(Take me away) Where the skies aren't
(Shades of grey) Baby, let's
(Make our escape) To a place where
We can wake to the sun again
[x2]

Slivers lyrics - Cauterize

Are you loathsome tonight
Chasing hours with wine
If it's drama you wanted you know darling you got it
It's what we do best always dressed to impress
Try to cover it in make up but there's no hiding this mess

Remember love and how we used to be in it
She said she won't she's trying hard to forget it
Remember lust and how a touch gave us shivers
I can't get close to you your skin gives me slivers

You don't care enough to cry
There's nothing real left in your eyes
No fairy tales no lullabies
I'm only asking this of you one time

May I have this dance before the moment's past
I hate this song but I hope that it lasts
I'll sing in your ear off time and out of key
But you're just not happy being miserable with me

The mirror ball fell to the floor between us
So we can see how pathetic we look in a thousand little pieces
So watch your step for the next three minutes
I'm not giving up on you until this song is finished

Remember love and all the ways that we'd make it
We lost the passion when did you start to fake it
Remember lust and how a touch gave us shivers
I can't get close to you your skin gives me slivers

The way you look tonight
The way you can't look me right in the eye
I've never seen a smile so wide
I've never seen a smile so contrived
I know that you would rather be anywhere but here with me

May I have this dance because the moments passing
I hate this song and it's just not lasting
I'll scream in your ear off time and out of tune
Just know I was happy being miserable with you

Tremble lyrics - Cauterize

(Tremble, tremble, tremble)
(Tremble, tremble, tremble)
My lips they tremble from this silence
But I'd rather chew on razor blades
Then speak the words I want to say

Don't tell me you are sorry
I see this thing all too clearly now
We're past apologies
I just want you to bleed like me

I (Tremble)
Should have known (Tremble)
But I never thought you'd do this to me (Tremble)
It (Tremble)
Hurts to laugh (Tremble)
Now that I know the joke was on me (Tremble)

And it makes me sick to think
About all those dirty things
And the pictures in my head
You should have slit my throat instead
It would of made more sense
We wouldn't have this mess
The blood would dry
But the lies you hide are rotting your insides
(Tremble, tremble, tremble)

My stomach's got this aching feeling
Thinkings got the best of me
Brought out the worst for all to see
This feels like everybody knows a secret I don't
These malicious grins and whispering
A vicious plot to kill what's left of me

And it makes me sick to think
About all those dirty things
And the pictures in my head
You should have slit my throat instead
It would of made more sense
We wouldn't have this mess
The blood would dry
But the lies you hide are rotting your insides

They'll never know
'Cause we'll never tell
Your secret's safe with me
I'll never let it out (And they'll never know)
(And they'll never know)
(And they'll never know)
(And they'll never know)
(And they'll never know)
(And they'll never know)
(And they'll never know)
Your secret's safe with me (And they'll never know)
I'll never let it out (My lips they tremble from this silence)
(Silence, silence, silence)

I (Tremble)
Should have known (Tremble)
But I never thought you'd do this to me (Tremble)
It (Tremble)
Hurts to laugh (Tremble)
Now that I know the joke was on me (Tremble)

And it makes me sick to think
About all those dirty things
And the pictures in my head
You should have slit my throat instead
It would of made more sense
We wouldn't have this mess
The blood would dry
But the lies you hide are rotting your insides

And it makes me sick to think
About all those dirty things
And the pictures in my head
You should have slit my throat instead
It would of made more sense
We wouldn't have this mess
The blood would dry
But the lies you hide are rotting your insides
(My lips they tremble from this silence)
(Silence, silence)

Miracles Or Medicine lyrics - Cauterize

Don’t flinch,
Don’t move
Don’t make a sound
Take a deep breath
It might be a while 'til the next time we can breathe again
I know you’re hurt
But don’t say a word
You need to save your strength
It’s gonna be a long night waiting for the cure.

[Chorus:]
Who will find us here
All alone my dear
The angels or the ambulance
Which will save us now
All the pills we've downed
Miracles or medicine

The cold damp air
The glass in your hair
The Smell of perfume mixed with gasoline
I think I might be sick
As the radio
Plays a song we know
Through a static frequency
I hear it freely
The blood and makeup on your face
It’s hard to see
You’re hard to see
But you're beautiful
And I've told you so
Maybe not enough but you need to know
That I meant it
That I meant it everytime

[Chorus x2]

Your eyes look like glass
As tears freeze on their lashes
Your lips won't stop shaking as time quickly passes
Outlines in dark red of angels where you lay
The epitome of all beauty is dying slowly
Right in front of me

Send flashing lights
Distress calls in the night
Where’s the heroes
When you need them the most
Send anything
I don’t care anymore
Where’s the miracles when you’re all out of hope

Paper Wings lyrics - Cauterize

Your paper wings got ruined in the rain
Coat hanger halo got rusted
The lace fell off the dress you made
Your the saddest little angel
Mascara left a sour taste

[Chorus]
And I wish that I was there when you took that fall
I'm too weak to pick you up
But I would've laid down in this puddle beside you
'Cause it's all that I can do
I didn't have the heart to tell you
It's really bad
It's really bad this time

Like wild horses running, scared
From a storm that's too much to bare
It's sad, the things you used to fear
Don't seem so bad, they're not so bad
Don't let them scare you.

And I pushed your bed to the window today.
You're still not well enough turned your visitors away.
I fight these tears by your bedside
How dare I let you see me cry

I didn't have the heart to tell you
It's really bad
It's really bad this time

Your wings weren't meant for this
This weather that no one guessed
No calm before the storm
And it's gone before the panic sets
So let's take our time with this,
Bleach the mud from off your dress,
You make such an innocent mess in all of this.

[Chorus]

Sing a requiem for me

Poor another drink for me

Something's gotta give
These conversations make me dumb
You look so good when your scared
It turns me on when you fear for your life

Stand over you and watch you bleed. I'll be the last thing you see
Go ahead I dare you to scream

Don't waste another breathe on me

You turned me into a killer

You've run outta luck tonight
Baby your time is up
Something's got a hold of me, doesn't want you to breathe
Stand over you and watch you bleed. I'll be the last thing you see
Go ahead I dare you to scream
No one can hear but me
Pleading won't get you anywhere,
When I decided not to care

Porcelain lyrics - Cauterize

Sat up for hours, thoughts of a lover,
I'll probably never get a chance to hold again.
All of my days spent, waiting for nights, with her again, again.

And I'm, sharing a drink with a memory, and a laugh with an empty seat.
Do you still look the same? Will you still look at me the same?
Cause I know that I don't, I've gotten so old in these last few years.
And I'd rather be fighting with you than sleeping here next to her.

Don't let me fall I'll break, what a mess I'd make.
Pathetic pieces on your floor, will cut your feet forever more.
You're porcelain, such fragile skin,
Just let me hold you. I'll be gentle. I won't drop you.
This time I'll be careful.

Forget for just one second that this is not alright.
Let's drink to feeling nothing, at least just for tonight.
Stay for one more, pass out on the floor just like we used to do,
It got so hot in your room.

Don't let me fall I'll break, what a mess I'd make.
Pathetic pieces on your floor, will cut your feet forever more.
You're porcelain, such fragile skin,
Just let me hold you. I'll be gentle. I won't drop you.
This time I'll be careful.

And I can't let it go, This Phantom pain I'm feeling,
And the hurt wont leave me alone, and I'm tired of sleeping with ghosts.

Fell asleep with your ghost woke up with a headache.
From a cure that's only temporary, and in the morning always fails me.
Don't let me fall I'll break, what a mess I'd make.
Pathetic pieces on your floor, will cut your feet forever more.
You're porcelain, such fragile skin,
Just let me hold you. I'll be gentle. I won't drop you.
This time I'll be careful.

My Favorite Patient lyrics - Cauterize

(Did you know you’re my favourite..
...Did you know you’re my favourite patient!)

Did you know you’re my favourite…
Did you know you’re my favourite patient here?
Did you know that I need you…
Did you know that I need this treatment more than you do?

When you find it hard to breathe
And your heart has skipped a beat
We’ll rush you to intensive care
And declare emergency (..emergency)

Well I’m not gonna lie to you
This is gonna hurt
Like nothing that you’ve ever felt
This is gonna hurt like hell (..emergency)
And if it takes us through the night
I'll sleep when you are alright,
I'll sleep when you're fine
When you regain all vital signs

Do you remember love…
Do you remember love for the first time?
I'm sorry to say
I'm sorry it'll never be like that again.

When you find it hard to breathe
And your heart has skipped a beat
We’ll rush you to intensive care
And declare emergency (..emergency)

Well I’m not gonna lie to you
This is gonna hurt
Like nothing that you’ve ever felt
This is gonna hurt like hell (..emergency)
And if it takes us through the night
I'll sleep when you are alright,
I'll sleep when you're fine
When you regain all vital signs

Don't panic, grin and bare it.
It will all end soon I promise you.
Don't panic, grin and bare it.
It will all end soon I swear to you.

Did you know that you’re favourite…
Just know that you’re my favourite patient (…my favourite patient)

Well I’m not gonna lie to you
This is gonna hurt
Like nothing that you’ve ever felt
This is gonna hurt like hell (..emergency)
And if it takes us through the night
I'll sleep when you are alright,
I'll sleep when you're fine
When you regain all vital signs

Skin For Scars lyrics - Cauterize

Tie these hands they shake too much
To hold you, to hold you
With wandering eyes its so hard to watch you
To watch out for you watch out for you

Every time you almost died
I chased your soul to the sky and brought it back to you
Before your body knew that it was gone
Every cut that didn't scar
I know exactly where they are I wear them all for you
Your skin is such a nicer tissue

I'm out of shape and much too slow to chase you, to chase you
Its time you found somebody new to save you, cause I can't save you I cant save you

No this is not alright, everything's not fine, don't trust me with your life
Don't put your faith in me I'm much too weak to keep you safe tonight
No this is not alright, everything's not fine, don't trust me with your life
Don't put your faith in me I'm much too weak to keep you safe tonight

Every time you almost died
I chased your soul to the sky and brought it back to you
Before your body knew that it was gone
Every cut that didn't scar
I know exactly where they are I wear them all for you
Your skin is such a nicer tissue
Your skin is such a nicer tissue

I'm cutting off my wings, I don't deserve to fly
What the hell have I done, I almost let you die
I let you down my friend, I failed you once again
But this time is way too close, I can't save you

(I'm a fake)I'm entirely made out of plastic
(I'm a fake)I'll destroy almost anything delicate
(I'm a fake)Make you think that everything's perfect now
(I'm a fake)I'm a fake, I'm a fake and I've been found out

Every time you almost died
I chased your soul to the sky and brought it back to you
Before your body knew that it was gone
Every cut that didn't scar
I know exactly where they are I wear them all for you
Your skin is such a nicer tissue I traded my skin for you scars

Why This Last Dance lyrics - Cauterize

As we dance
Here in this empty apartment
Echoes of laughter
Long live here after
Put your memories in boxes
Cut all your losses
Romance left this place long ago
If these walls could talk
Then they'd tell me it's time to go

You gave this place so much colour
I don't know why I did not see that before
You gave life to this place
Without you it's empty space

As we kiss,
Knowing that it's our last one
Pull the sheets from the mattress,
Sleep hasn't found us
Tear the curtains from the window
let the world see this last dance
And now,
What is left for us
Turn all the lights out
Lock the door behind us

You gave this place so much colour,
I don't know why I did not see that before
You gave life to this place,
Without you it's empty space

Someone else can hang pictures over the holes in the walls.
Duck and take cover from the screams in the hall.
Sing you to sleep when you're hurt from the fall
And somehow I will miss this... all

Let's burn this place down
Scatter the ashes
Paint it with gasoline
Start throwing matches
Somewhere in this wreck remains dying love

You gave this place so much colour
I don't know why I did not see that before
You gave life to this place
Without you it's empty space

Someone else can hang pictures over the holes in the walls.
Duck and take cover from the screams in the hall.
Sing you to sleep when you're hurt from the fall
And somehow I will miss this... all

As we dance
Knowing that it's our last one
If these walls could talk
They'd tell us it's time to go

Miracles Or Medicine lyrics - Cauterize

Don’t flinch,
Don’t move
Don’t make a sound
Take a deep breath
It might be a while 'til the next time we can breathe again
I know you’re hurt
But don’t say a word
You need to save your strength
It’s gonna be a long night waiting for the cure.

[Chorus:]
Who will find us here
All alone my dear
The angels or the ambulance
Which will save us now
All the pills we've downed
Miracles or medicine

The cold damp air
The glass in your hair
The Smell of perfume mixed with gasoline
I think I might be sick
As the radio
Plays a song we know
Through a static frequency
I hear it freely
The blood and makeup on your face
It’s hard to see
You’re hard to see
But you're beautiful
And I've told you so
Maybe not enough but you need to know
That I meant it
That I meant it everytime

[Chorus x2]

Your eyes look like glass
As tears freeze on their lashes
Your lips won't stop shaking as time quickly passes
Outlines in dark red of angels where you lay
The epitome of all beauty is dying slowly
Right in front of me

Send flashing lights
Distress calls in the night
Where’s the heroes
When you need them the most
Send anything
I don’t care anymore
Where’s the miracles when you’re all out of hope

[Chorus]

Feel lyrics - Cauterize

Beautiful in the dress I laid out for you
Let your hair down the way you always used to
The tile’s cold,
The tap is dripping
As I go to rinse my hands of you,
And watch the pieces one by one wash away down the drain
I’ll fake this mourning at your funeral
Dressed in black and trying not to laugh

[Chorus:]
Sleep tight my dear
This’ll be your last night here
Breathing among the living
I’ve got some plans for you
Sweet dreams my love
It’ll all be over soon
Were just waiting for the poison in your blood
To reach your heart

So cold and pale laid out before me
So weak and frail quiet as can be
Peacefully sleeping for all of eternity
No one will ever suspect me
Fingerprints and DNA won’t give me away
I’ll fake this mourning at your funeral
Dressed in black and trying not to laugh

[Chorus]

I brought your favorite flowers
Your mother said you would have loved them
I’ll read your favorite poem out loud
And I’ll break down,
I’ll break down
You said that I don’t feel
That’s why you could not live with me
I don’t feel the least bit sad right now,
How's that for irony?
I’ll fake this mourning at your funeral
Dressed in black and trying not to laugh…
…I can’t help but laugh

[Chorus]

Paper Wings lyrics - Cauterize

Your paper wings got ruined in the rain
Coat hanger halo got rusted
The lace fell off the dress you made
Your the saddest little angel
Mascara left a sour taste

[Chorus]
And I wish that I was there when you took that fall
I'm too weak to pick you up
But I would've laid down in this puddle beside you
'Cause it's all that I can do
I didn't have the heart to tell you
It's really bad
It's really bad this time

Like wild horses running, scared
From a storm that's too much to bare
It's sad, the things you used to fear
Don't seem so bad, they're not so bad
Don't let them scare you.

And I pushed your bed to the window today.
You're still not well enough turned your visitors away.
I fight these tears by your bedside
How dare I let you see me cry

I didn't have the heart to tell you
It's really bad
It's really bad this time

Your wings weren't meant for this
This weather that no one guessed
No calm before the storm
And it's gone before the panic sets
So let's take our time with this,
Bleach the mud from off your dress,
You make such an innocent mess in all of this.

[Chorus]

Something Beautiful lyrics - Cauterize

Faded away like the color in a blue sky at the end of the day.
Night falls and the search begins for something better than this.

A scream or a cry, the truth or a lie,
I'm not sure they will save us this time.
I don't wanna be around
when it all comes down to watch something beautiful die.

You said the only way was to run away.
You're sick of me so you just can't stick around to hear me pleading
(I'm pleading).
Does it show?
I'm pathetic, I know.
I just can't stand here and watch you go.
I'm running after you (I'm running after you).

Helpless, cause my hands are tied.
Eyelids pinned back so they're open wide.
In a theatre, all alone in the front row,
to watch something beautiful die.

A scream or a cry, the truth or a lie,
I'm not sure they will save us this time.
I don't wanna be around
when it all comes down to watch something beautiful die.

You said the only way was to run away.
You're sick of me so you just can't stick around to hear me pleading
(I'm pleading).
Does it show?
I'm pathetic, I know.
I just can't stand here and watch you go.
I'm running after you (I'm running after you).

What happened to the things we used to do?
You said it's all the same and that you needed a change.
You left without goodbye and now I'm wondering why.
But I don't think I want to know all the things that he does better
and how the past just doesn't matter.
You left me once but this time will be the last time.

You said the only way was to run away.
You're sick of me so you just can't stick around to hear me pleading
(I'm pleading).
Does it show?
I'm pathetic, I know.
I just can't stand here and watch you go.
I'm running after you (I'm running after you).

Look for the feeling that we lost.
Where did you have it last?
Maybe if we retrace our steps.
But we can't find the path that led us here to where we stand.
Face to face to watch this bitter end.
Now something beautiful is dead.

If You Go lyrics - Cauterize

It's kinda sad that I have learned to deal with things like this.
Being strong means being heartless.

Tell me, how do the scars feel after the wounds heal?
Did it burn when they cauterized?
Did it show that you were hiding the hurt inside?
Do your eyes still shine as bright as they did
the days when you were at your best?

If you run away from me, I'm not running after you (cause I'm so tired).
If you turn away from this don't look back (cause I'll be gone).

If you go then I'll forget you.
When you're gone I won't miss you.
I'm sorry that's just the way I've learned to deal with a broken heart.
If you go then I'll forget you.
When you're gone I won't miss you.
I'm sorry that's just the way I've learned to deal
with a broken heart and broken promises.

It's been a long time since I've seen you and longer since we've talked.
And the last thing that I said was I had nothing to say.
Now I'm choking on my words.
All the things I didn't say that could have made it all ok.

Now that you're all alone and feeling sorry for yourself,
did it make sense to lie to me and deceive me like you did?
If you run away from me, I'm not running after you (cause I'm so tired).
If you turn away from this don't look back (cause I'll be gone).

If you go then I'll forget you.
When you're gone I won't miss you.
I'm sorry that's just the way I've learned to deal with a broken heart.
If you go then I'll forget you.
When you're gone I won't miss you.
I'm sorry that's just the way I've learned to deal
with a broken heart and broken promises.

Tell me, how do the scars feel after the wounds heal?
Did it burn when they cauterized?
Did it show that you were hiding the hurt inside?
Do your eyes still shine as bright as they did
the days when you were at your best?

How do the scars feel after the wounds heal?
Did it burn when they cauterized? [x4]

My Everything lyrics - Cauterize

I still miss you, I still care, sometimes I swear you're still here.
Do you miss me?
Do you care?
Does it hurt that I'm not there?

Told me you need something better.
What is better than love?
Told me you need something new.
But all I need is you to feel the way you make me feel.

I never meant to hurt you, never meant to say those things,
never meant to write them down in a song about the way it used to be.
It used to be so good.
You used to be my everything.

I just want you to know that I'm just fine on my own.
Do you want me to know that you hate being alone?

Did you think I would fall for this over again we're repeating.
Did you think I would crawl back,
crawl back one more time to feel the way I feel.

How's your hand?
My eyes healed nicely.
How's the time pass by without me?
I hope this hurts like hell cause why should you be fine?
