Black Valentine

Black valentine, you said you'd be mine
You said that you'd love me true
And you spoke in words borrowed and blue.

Black valentine, you drank me like wine
But you called me angry and untrue
As if it had nothing to do with you.

Black valentine, in search of lost time
You blamed me for what you lost down the line
But the sickness in your heart, it's not mine.

You're staring at the grate
Planning your escape
Planning your escape

Go ahead and run
it's what you do, it's what you do
Go ahead and run
it's nothing new, it's nothing new
Go ahead and run
you know you will, you know you will
Go ahead and run
you got your fill, you got your fill
Go ahead and run
who pays the bill? who pays the bill?

Black valentine, so proud of your mind
You think you're some kind of sage
But your skin can't cover your rage.

Black valentine, you were not so kind
I saw you on the street and we had nothing to say
You stared at me, ashamed, and I looked away.

You're staring at the grate
Planning your escape
Planning your escape

Go ahead and run
it's what you do, it's what you do
Go ahead and run
it's nothing new, it's nothing new
Go ahead and run
you know you will, you know you will
Go ahead and run
you got your fill, you got your fill
Go ahead and run
who pays the bill? who pays the bill?
Go ahead and run
it's what you do, it's what you do
Go ahead and run
it's nothing new, it's nothing new
Go ahead and run
right out of view, right out of view

Black valentine
You said you'd be mine
Said you'd be
Said you'd be
Said you'd be
Said you'd be mine.
