Straight For The Knife Lyrics
Put on my best dress
I wanted to impress
I put a little makeup on
Put a bow in my hair
Wore pretty underwear
Hoping you might take it off
Don't know if you really care
But I'm strapped to my chair
And it ain't cause you're pretty
You were charming
Until you saw your chance to kill
Your chance to make history

You went straight for the knife
And I prepared to die
Your blade, it shines
Looked me straight in the eye
You turned the gas on high
Held the flame alight
You wonder why I'm scared of fire
You wonder why you make girls cry

My mascara a mess
Harsh words for your princess
Boy, you and your promises
If your goal was to love
You scored an epic miss
Now you'll just have memories

You went straight for the knife
And I prepared to die
Your blade, it shines
Looked me straight in the eye
You turned the gas on high
Held the flame alight
You wonder why I'm scared of fire
You wonder why you make girls cry

Boy, you draw me back in
Hungry for your bad loving
But will someone find me swinging from the rafters
From hanging on your every word

You went straight for the knife
And I prepared to die
Your blade, it shines
Looked me straight in the eye
You turned the gas on high
Held the flame alight
You wonder why I'm scared of fire
You wonder why you make girls cry
