Ellise – Play Dead Lyrics

Play Dead Lyrics

[Verse 1]
I’m running out of options
God knows I’ve tried
To close all the doors
You wanna pry
I’ll run against the clock and
You know that time is precious
You’re wasting all of mine
On your hands and knees
You’re begging me to stay
I could break your heart a million ways
Maybe you don’t get the message
Learnt from your mistakes
Read between the lines and sound it out
Use your brain

[Pre Chorus]
Hush baby
Gonna make you cry

[Chorus]
Do I have to play dead to get it through your head?
You’re draining all the life from my bloodstream
Do I have to play dead and paint myself in red?
My heart isn’t yours
Doesn’t even beat
Dress you in black
Drag you out to the back
See my name
And it’s etched in a grave
Do I have to play dead to get it through your head?
I can see the end and its so sweet

[Verse 2]
I guess I never wanted
The life you saw
Behind a pearly picket fence
It never crossed my mind that
Your cookie cutter eyes are full of cruel intent
On your hands and knees you’re begging me to pray
That I won’t break your heart a million ways, baby
Miss the bigger picture in a dire state
Read between the lines
In bloody ink I axe your name

[Pre Chorus]
Don’t blame me
You were never mine

[Chorus]
Do I have to play dead to get it through your head?
You’re draining all the life from my bloodstream
Do I have to play dead and paint myself in red?
My heart isn’t yours
Doesn’t even beat
Dress you in black
Drag you out to the back
See my name
And it’s etched in a grave
Do I have to play dead to get it through your head?
I can see the end and its so sweet
