lyrics

You can crawl on your knees
You can lie on your face and plead
Nothing will stop me from taking what I need

Well you swore you’d be true
The debt that you owe me is due
Nothing is stopping the turning of the screw
And you’re screwed

I burn my bridges baby, that’s just what I do
And I’ll waste no more precious time on you

My curse is tugging at the feet
Of liars, libertines, and cheats
Where broken hearts and lovers meet
My love

The sins that weigh down on your head
Will stain in crimson on your bed
I’ll see no other in my stead
My love

I burn my bridges baby, that’s just what I do
And I’ll waste no more precious time on you

You’ve left me feeling so ashamed
Of all the feelings you unchained
You broke me sheer when you disclaimed
My love

So no, this shrew will not be tamed
I’ll lay you in a shallow grave
Therein your lies in silence framed
My love

I burn my bridges baby, that’s just what I do
And I’ll waste no more precious time on you

I burn my bridges baby, that’s just what I do
And I’ll waste no more precious time on you
I’ll waste no more precious time on you
No, I’ll waste no more precious time on you
