Life is rich, but it's way too short
You make a lot of money, but you just want more
I don't need the pain right here in my heart
But I hate every minute when we're so far apart, yeah

It was love in a minute, it was love in a flash
It brings me no pleasure, just a stab in the back
Brings me no comfort, it brings me no peace
It's a weight on my shoulder, it's a fatal disease

So don't tear me up
I don't ever wanna see your picture again
And don't poison my blood
I don't ever wanna see your face here no more

Gonna finish it quick, wanna finish it clean
Don't wanna be bitter, I don't wanna be mean
I feel like we're driving down a dead-end street, yeah
I've come so far, I wanna crash the car, I wanna land right on my feet

I said don't tear me up
I don't ever wanna see your picture again
I said don't tear me up
I don't ever wanna see your face here no more

But I dream of you constantly
You'll be my angel of light
And in the dark rooms of sleeplessness
You'll be my lover each night

Life is a bitch, it's way too short
Unlike a politician, it just can't be bought
Think of all the tenderness and think of all the craziness
And if you ever wanna hate me come and stick a knife right in my chest

I said don't tear me up
I don't ever wanna see your picture again
I said don't tear me up
I don't ever wanna see your face here no more

I said don't tear me up
I said don't tear me up
I said don't poison my blood
I don't ever wanna see your picture again
