Verse 1

What else did you expect?

When you jumped off the edge of the cliff?

When you exposed the heart behind your ribs?

When you jumped into the poignant flame?

When you chased a phantom without a name?

Chorus

Outside of movies and novels there's only one way for love like this to end.

As you've probably inferred from the internal wounds that are gaping open.

Verse 2

What else did you expect?

You were supposed to be drowned in pain.

You were supposed to be driven insane.

You were supposed to choke with the chains.

You were supposed to jump before the train.

Chorus

Outside of movies and novels there's only one way for love like this to end.

As you've probably inferred from the internal wounds that are gaping open.

Bridge

How could you expect a fairytale

Out of a dangerous tidal swell?

What have you done? Just look around,

At the broken mess of your town.

Your whole world has been wrecked.

What else did you expect?

Chorus

Outside of movies and novels there's only one way for love like this to end.

As you've probably inferred from the internal wounds that are gaping open.

Chorus

Outside of movies and novels there's only one way for love like this to end.

As you've probably inferred from the internal wounds that are gaping open.
