Lyrics

(Source: as heard)

Oh, you're out there tonight with another,
And my pain is so dreadfully sharp.
I picture you with her, and shudder.
It's like a dagger through the heart.
Do you think that my feelings don't matter?
Or your cheating or hurtful remarks
When you leave me all broken and shattered?
It's like a dagger through the heart.
Oh, I know I'm a fool to keep staying,
When you've made hurting me such an art,
Tossed around like a used box of crayons.
It's like a dagger through the heart.
Oh, you've cut me to pieces so often,
Like a knife or a poisonous dart,
I would be better off in my coffin, oh .
It's like a dagger through the heart.
Oh, I know I'm a fool to keep staying,
When you've made hurting me such an art,
Tossed around like a used box of crayons.
It's like a dagger through the heart,
It's like a dagger through the heart,
Through the heart.
