Twist Of The Knife

This song is by ELO Part II and appears on the album Moment of Truth (1994).

Lipstick traces on an unmade bed
We drank all night and got devils in our head
She said some things that should have stayed unsaid
Emotions overflowing
Now I don't know what to believe
Sitting here in the cold light of the day

She felt anger, I felt pain
I walked out into the pouring rain
Packed my bags and took the midnight train
Didn't care where it was going
On my way, running like a thief
Hard to leave, but harder to stay

There's no wrong, there's no right
But sometimes she breaks all the rules
And lying here alone tonight
Can't believe love can be so cruel

Wish I'd believed her
'Cause now I need her
Sometimes the truth just hurts too much

She goes straight to the heart
With a truth that always finds me
She goes straight to the heart
And pulls tight the ties that bind me

She can be so cold, and it tears me apart
When she twists the knife
It goes straight to the heart

Sometimes love is an endless fight
It's never simple, never black and white
Just like ships passing in the night
Who knows where they're going
No forgiveness, no reprieve
Both sailing their separate ways

Light of day, dead of night
I'm searching for what I can't find
Try and try as I might
I can't get her out of my mind

Wish I'd believed her
'Cause now I need her
I guess we all must love and learn
She goes straight to heart
With a truth that always finds me
She goes straight to the heart
And pulls tight the ties that bind me
She can be cold, and it tears me apart
When she twists the knife
It goes straight to the heart
