Frightened Rabbit Candlelit Lyrics

Love’s checkered past

Is littered with violent acts

And the blood that fills countless baths

Each drop drawn in her name

In this modern age

The image of valor has changed

But I’m ready and willing to wage

A gut-wrenched war

For a minute of your time

I’m done playin’ stone-paper-scissors

Gonna grab that stone and bring ’em all down with it

Steal those scissors and cut some throats

Put pen to the paper and I’ll write you a note

I won’t get in line

I will not wait for this

With my bare hands I kill

Just to be candlelit

With you

I have no checkered past

I’ve never been a violent man

Well maybe you’ve changed all that

Each scar I carve is in your name

So let the suitors come

I can see them off, one by one

Open every last artery up

Just for a second of your time

Oh…

I’m done playin’ stone-paper-scissors

Gonna take that stone and bring ’em all down with it

Steal those scissors and cut some throats

Put pen to the paper and I’ll write you a note

I won’t get in line

I will not wait for this

With my bare hands I kill

Just for the privilege

Look at the blood bath

Look at the mess I have made

With my bare hands I kill

Just to be candlelit

With you

Oh I’d kill for one

I’d kill for one night candlelit

I’d kill for one

I’d kill for one night candlelit
