Es Tut Wieder Weh

I carry my past around with me like dirt
Under my fingernails and my diary nauseates me
I tear all of the pages and try to forget
That I can’t forget you
My thoughts hang in the air like weeping willows
And the swallows fly low again
Then I see your silhouette on the horizon
There’s the monster that slept so long

You plunge into my life
And I feel how it stings
How all of my hopes shatter on the words
You plunge into my life
Stir up the embers again
And my older scar spouts blood again

It hurts again, it hurts again
I want to get out of here
But I don’t know how
It hurts again, it hurts again
And my pride gets on its knees before you
It hurts again

Even with my feet in the fire, I would take an oath
It never went better for me, but the lie isn’t a victory
I’ve defended my words to the finish for years
But my knife’s slowly getting dull

You plunge into my life …

It hurts again
This desire that I can’t endure
It hurts again, it hurts again
And I feel like I did on the first day
It hurts again, it hurts again

You plunge into my life
And I feel how it stings
How all of my hopes shatter on the words
You plunge into my life
Stir up the embers again
And my older scar spouts blood again

You plunge into my life
And my life gets cold
And your lies get tired and old
You plunge into my life
And I feel how it stings
Because you don’t see me
Oh, you don’t see me

It hurts again …
And I feel like I did on the first day
It hurts again
