If I Never See You Again

I continually think like this
As a magic knife in the heart
I really want to end all this
But it keeps finding a brand new start
The words which I do speak
Make me feel a bit too weak
And the smile I try to make

She Puts A Bow On The Basket

She puts a bow on the basket
She says to make it pretty
But if you ask me
I think that it silly
Because when you remove the bow
And see wants in the package
You see something better
That tied up silence and damage
So thought she want to make the package pretty
I think itís a different reason altogether
Yes it is a bit pretty
Pettier than some things
I think she does it to
Keep the contents tied in
