Lyrics


I quit carving out my head
But after a while I missed that dull edge
That twisted smile that said what I said
A scarlet gash across the sky
As colors clashed she crossed my mind
In a lightening flash the power died
I've wished the worst upon myself
But this was not the time 

She said I love you 
Something electric 
Something entirely new
She said I love you
Something electric
Something that I never knew

While waiting for my dogs to boil
I looked through a pile of Polaroids
Those twisted limbs I couldn't avoid
Another gash across the sky
As colors clashed she crossed my mind
Strike up a match, let's get to the point
She pursed her lips and made a wish
A camera clicked in my mind

She said I love you 
Something electric 
Something entirely new
She said I love you
Something electric
Something that I never knew

Bite your tongue
I'll hold my breath
We'll stop the flow of blood to our heads
In a lightening flash, it'll all return
I've wished the worst upon myself
But this was not my night 

She said I love you 
Something electric 
Something entirely new
She said I love you
Something electric
Something that I never knew 

Something electric
