lyrics

So did you think
You’d find solace in wine
From the blood on your hands
And the blood in your line?
You thought that you’d put a
Rope round my neck
You wished me to hell
But I’m not there yet

That white hare that’s running
Wherever you creep
Will shadow your nightmares
And won’t let you sleep
And my venom and vengeance
Will close like a net
‘Cos you wished me to hell
But I’m not there yet
Yes you wished me to hell
But I’m not there yet
Yes you wished me to hell
But I’m not there yet

I’m your white hare baby
Wherever you creep
I’m your nightmare baby
And I won’t let you sleep
Deep down inside
You’re so shallow you see
So I won’t let you sleep

You turned your back
On your lover
Turned your back on me
NSAFWB
Deep down inside
You’re so shallow you see
So I won’t let you sleep
No I won’t let you sleep

This debt will be settled
With restless unease
You’ll drink ‘til you’re sodden
Yet find no release
And your life will unravel
On the promise you broke
You’ve made your own gallows
And I hope you choke
Yes you’ve made your own gallows
And I hope you choke
Yes, you’ve made your own gallows
And I hope you choke.

I’m you white hare baby
Wherever you creep
I’m your nightmare baby
And I won’t let you sleep
You’re feckless and faithless
And hollow and cheap
So I won’t let you sleep

I will haunt your nightmares
Whatever you do
I will taunt your conscience
And never be soothed
Deceiving myself
That this curse will get through

Because you meant the world to me
And I meant nothing to you
I meant nothing to you
I meant nothing to you
I meant nothing to you
