LyricsEdit

I've been cursed

I've been crossed

I've been beaten by the ones that get me off

I've been cut

I've been opened up

I've been shattered by the ones I thought I loved

You left me here like a chalk outline

On the sidewalk waiting for the rain to wash away

Wash away

You keep coming back to the scene of the crime

But the dead can't speak and there's nothing left to say anyway

All you left behind

Is a chalk outline

I've been cold

In the crypt

But not as cold as the words across your lips

You'll be sorry baby

Someday

As you reach across the bed

Where my body used to lay

You left me here like a chalk outline

On the sidewalk waiting for the rain to wash away

Wash away

You keep coming back to the scene of the crime

But the dead can't speak and there's nothing left to say anyway

All you left behind

Is a chalk outline

All you left behind

Is a chalk outline

All you left behind

You left me here like a chalk outline

On the sidewalk waiting for the rain to wash away

Wash away

You keep coming back to the scene of the crime

But the dead can't speak and there's nothing left to say anyway

All you left behind

Is a chalk outline
