Alison Moyet Twisting The Knife

I watch it trickle from your lips

Pearls of ruby red soaking up your head until you want to push through

And then the world turns red

And the wine tastes sour

Pushing back the hand until the midnight hour

Every door is closing behind you

There’s no one left to come and find you

You’re soaking wet but the file won’t dry you

I’d like to help but I cant stand by

And watch you twisting the knife

They’ve got you wasting your life

Can’t stop you twisting the knife

Id rather turn out all the lights than see you like this

Caress me with your anger

Sting me with your kiss

You’ve been pushing too hard

I’ve been trying too long

Now I don’t believe I have the will to carry on

You take it one step forward

Then it’s two steps back

I’d jump the wire but I’m feeling trapped

Its other people make you insecure

I won’t surrender like I did before

And watch you twisting the knife

They’ve got you wasting your life

Can’t stop you twisting the knife

Surrender like I did before

Twisting the knife

Sting me with your kiss

You take it one step forward

Then it’s two steps back

I’d jump the wire but I’m feeling trapped

Its other people make you insecure

I won’t surrender like I did before

And watch you twisting the knife

They’ve got you wasting your life

Can’t stop you twisting the knife
