lyrics

We numbered the stars and counted all the satellites
Folded paper airplanes and flew 'em from the balcony at night
Someone else's innocence, someone else's fall
Someone else's height marks on the kitchen wall
On the kitchen wall

Cut me open and shut me down
I don't wanna taste the bittersweet, I don't wanna hear the bitter sound
Cut me open and shut me down
I don't wanna taste the bittersweet, I don't wanna hear the bitter sound
The bitter sound

Your kiss was Sunday sweet and I'd never tasted love before
With bleeding hearts we melted into each other's arms on the bedroom floor
Someone else's photographs, someone else's bed
Someone else's demons screaming in my head
Screaming in my head

Cut me open and shut me down
I don't wanna taste the bittersweet, I don't wanna hear the bitter sound
Cut me open and shut me down
I don't wanna taste the bittersweet, I don't wanna hear the bitter sound
The bitter sound

Someone else's memories, someone else's dreams
Sliding across the hardwood in the summer heat
In the summer heat

Cut me open and shut me down
I don't wanna taste the bittersweet, I don't wanna hear the bitter sound
Cut me open and shut me down
I don't wanna taste the bittersweet, I don't wanna hear the bitter sound
I don't wanna taste the bittersweet, I don't wanna hear the bitter sound
The bitter sound
