Cop Shoot Cop — It Only Hurts When I Breathe lyrics

Was a time I would have cried
Those days have all gone by
You always walked a crooked line
And so did I
If I mentioned love I take it back
I saw your heart and it was black
I finally found out what you lack
And that's a soul
You read my thoughts, you knew my fears
Weren't as old as you appeared
But so much wiser than your years
And I was blind
You left a trail of rubber checks
Broken hearts and busted necks
What the fuck did I expect
I don't know
You can give your confession tomorrow
If you find a priest dumb enough to believe
It only hurts when I breathe
Purge and binge, binge and purge
Gorged on speed and bitter words
Found ourselves on B and 3rd
One more time
Feast and fast, burn and crash
Couldn't seem to make it last
You stole my confidence and cash
But I will survive
You can give your confession tomorrow
If you find a priest dumb enough to believe
It only hurts when I breathe
Tears and laughs, laughs and tears
Days are weeks and months are years
Up the on-ramp grinding gears
Away we go
Looking for a bar to burn
Waiting for the tide to turn
Some people never learn
And I should know
You can give your confession tomorrow
If you find a priest dumb enough to believe
And me I'll just beg steal and borrow
Because it only hurts when I breathe
It only hurts when I breathe
