Lyrics

Wax paper sticks to my fingers
And the leaves in between have all broken and withered
But I, kept everything that you gave me
Even the envelopes that came with your letters

And it's still such a mystery how it came to be
It seems I ended right where you began
Oh this life's so strange,
why do we rearrange everything
for a poisoned love?

From the first time you drew me in
No, I never felt comfortable, and I
Was waiting for the axe to fall
No I never felt comfortable

No there's not much of you to remember
And the year that has passed seemed to vanish like vapor
I guess you filled your passing need
With someone too eager to please
I was dropped with a sucker punch

From the first time you drew me in
No I never felt comfortable, and I
Just waited for the axe to fall
No, I never felt comfortable

Wax paper sticks to my fingers
And the leaves in between have all broken and withered
But I kept everything that you gave me
Still you gave me nothing at all

From the first time you drew me in
No, I never felt comfortable, and I
Was waiting for the axe to fall
No, I never felt comfortable
With you
