lyrics

I came dressed down
Wearing my birthday gown
You laid at my feet
Have mercy on me
You wrapped me in your finest furs
Drew me into your little world
You gave me a crown before you tore me down

Bone by bone, you rid me of my skin
When you were done, you strung necklaces
Now my gift to you, my king
Hangs from your mistresses collarbone
And here I am, dressed in her finery
Black sheets, cold heart what do you want from me?
I gave you everything and you gave me costume jewelry

Those diamonds in your eyes, they are mine
They are mine - magister, you've crossed the line
But when we're along you tell me they are still mine
And here I am dressed in her finery,
Black cheeks, cold love what do you want from me?
I gave you everything and you gave me her jewelry

Bone by bone, you rid me of my skin
When you were done, you strung necklaces
Out of bones, out of diamonds
And here I am, dressed in your finery
Black sheets, cold love, what do you want from me?
I gave you everything and you gave me
all these bones
all these diamonds

I came dressed down
wearing my birthday gown
