Your tongue is a dagger
And I am bleeding
My faded dreams were all for you

[Bass bit]

And with one word, and with just one word
Choking the life, I breathe my last

Riff 6 is 8 bars long, guitar 2 comes in in bar 6 for the last 2 bars.

I would give it all away
For the chance to shine again
I would freely pay the price
For the touch of your hand
