“Black Chandelier”

Drip, drip, drip, drip, drip
Drip, drip, drip, drip, drip
Drip, drip, drip, drip, drip
Drip, drip, drip, dripI shouldn’t laugh but I know I’m a failure in your eyes
I know it’s daft but I guess that I know it deep inside
It feels like we’re ready to crack these days, you and I
When it’s just the two of us, only the two of us, I could dieYou left my heart like an abandoned car
Old and worn out, no use at all
But I used to be free

We’re gonna separate ourselves tonight
We’re always running scared but holding knives
But there’s a black chandelier
It’s casting shadows and lies

Drip, drip, drip, drip

I’ll sit in silence for the rest of my life if you’d like
Dressing our wings with industrial gloves made of wire
Feel it penetrating the skin, we begin to relax
When it’s just the two of us, and a cute little cup of cyanide

You left my heart like an abandoned car
Old and worn out, no use at all
But I used to be free

We’re gonna separate ourselves tonight
We’re always running scared but holding knives
But there’s a black chandelier
It’s casting shadows and lies

We’re gonna separate ourselves tonight
We’re always running scared but holding knives
But there’s a black chandelier

You left my heart like an abandoned car
Old and worn out, no use at all
But I used to be free

We’re gonna separate ourselves tonight
We’re always running scared but holding knives
But there’s a black chandelier
It’s casting shadows and lies

We’re gonna separate ourselves tonight
We’re always running scared but holding knives
But there’s a black chandelier
