​Wristcutter's Lullaby

This song is by Fischer-Z and appears on the album Red Skies Over Paradise (1981).

It's hard for you
Seeing things the way you do.
When you gave up that way I knew.
You might get hurt again.

I ran, when the police tried to contact me.
I ran, I was so much afraid.
I ran, till my legs buckled under me.
I ran, but I wish that I'd stayed.

When I agreed to leave.
I didn't think you had to give
Another demonstration like you did
And hurt yourself again.

I ran, when the police tried to contact me.
I ran, I was so much afraid.
I ran, till my legs buckled under me.
I ran, but I wish that I'd stayed.

And now your lying injured in your bed.
I feel responsible for what you did.
I sometimes wish that it was me instead of you.

I want to say.
I'm sorry that I couldn't stay.
Although I let you down today.
You won't get hurt again.

I ran, when the police tried to contact me.
I ran, I was so much afraid.
I ran, till my legs buckled under me.
I ran, but I wish that I'd stayed.
