You Cut Me

by Little Sparta



A song about the danger of words and wielding them carelessly.


Ah you cut me
Yeah your tongue is sharp
I thought I knew your heart
But you cut me

Then you left me
Bleeding on the floor
I can’t take any more
Believe me

I’m wounded
Made a a mess from the start
The whole is falling apart
do you hear me - you hear me

Ah you cut me
Yeah you're sharp like a knife
And you just take a life
Can you feel it - ah you feel it

Aw you cut me
Cut me to the bone
You always work alone
Yah you cut me

When you’re walking
Careful where you walk into
You could murder the whole room
Just by speaking

I don't’ believe you
Didn't mean to cut them down
Didn't mean to put them down
It’s like a shooting

Aw you cut me
Left me in stitches babe
You’ve nothing left to say
But I bet you say it - you say it

Aw you cut me
You cut me
You cut me
You cut me
