lyrics

Oh I have to scream and shout
'cause my time is running out
I need you to know
How much I love you so

It was just a normal night, everything is alright
everything was good like every single night.
Maybe all the bad stuff was just out of sight
Maybe all the bad stuff was just in her mind.
We're on the bed, she turns her head -
feels like it's something I've said.
But then she looks back to me and she says;
"Baby what would you do if I was dead?"
What the fuck!? Now why would that happen?
You've got to admit that's a bit random.
"It's just a feeling inside, I'm leaving tonight."
I tell her I don't want her to leave me
but I don't think that she believes me,
she looks really certain as she draws the curtain

Oh I have to scream and shout
'cause my time is running out
I need you to know
How much I love you so

I'm like come on right, this is a joke?
Where's the ashtray? Did you just smoke?
But really if you were dead or actually leaving,
Fuck! I'd be torn up - fractured and grieving.
She says: "Shhhh, hush your lips babe,
have a look at that picture of us in the frame.
We looked so happy, why did it change?
Why did it fade?"
It didn't fade, my love's right here,
from every single second, through every single year
When we're not together but especially when we're near
In every single smile, in every single tear.
I'm a little worried 'cause now you're bringing fear
It's not your friends is it, trying to interfere?
She shakes her head and looks kind of weird.
I know she's gonna try and disappear
...It's crystal clear.

Oh I have to scream and shout
'cause my time is running out
I need you to know
How much I love you so

OK why are you going? Why do you think you should?
"I want this to end now, while things are good.
I can see this decaying into something crappy,
I want it to end now while I'm still happy."
She reveals a razor concealed in a pouch,
she eats it and instantly bleeds from the mouth.
Blood leaks on her blouse, then it seeps to her trousers,
then it builds like a fountain, she's screaming and shouting -
Now it's really spouting. My mind goes cloudy.
Think fast. Fuck. Something's got to change,
Then I see that picture of us in the frame,
I hit her round the head, then I hit her again,
I keep hitting her until the pain ends.
She slumps on her back and stops crying,
I wipe blood from her mouth, she starts smiling.
I say; I'm sorry I attacked you girl.
She says; "Well it's only natural,
I want you to remember this scene,
this is the happiest that I've ever been."
Before I can say what I really want to,
she dies in my arms saying
"I love you..."
