Iron Chic – To Shreds, You Say? Lyrics

SHARE

It’s been a long hard year
Started fine but it ends in tears
One down
We’re that much deader
This one ain’t shaping up much better
It ain’t done with me
It ain’t done with me
Setting sail for some nasty weather
Same old shit, just a little bit wetter
And it ends right here
Burst into flames when the sun appears
‘Cause you’re done with me
Yeah, you’re done with me

[Chorus] I was wrong when I thought you might
Somehow always be in my life
You’d hold on to me
And never let go
Now home feels like a prison cell
It’s my own special kind of hell
I’ve got the key
But nowhere to go

Now one thing is clear
I’m face to face with my greatest fear
I’m a stone
Baby, you’re a feather
Just leave me in the ground forever
And don’t mind me
Yeah, don’t mind me

[Chorus] I was wrong when I thought you might
Somehow always be in my life
You’d hold on to me
And never let go
Now home feels like a prison cell
It’s my own special kind of hell
I’ve got the key
But nowhere to go

I was wrong and you were right
You gave me the best years of my life
I’ll hold on to these
Hold on to these
Hold on to these
And never let go

I was playing with matches
Now I sift through the ashes
It’s cold now
The fire’s out
I might never be warm again
And the rain comes to wash it down
Worse to burn than it is to drown
Let the cool water
Fill my lungs
And I won’t have to breathe again
Like a ship on the ocean floor
That couldn’t quite make the shore
The storm that brought me down
Still thunders above my head
I think back to where I was
Safe and dry on the land above
Could have stayed there forever
But all things come to an end
