lyrics

I believe it’s true
History is repeating itself
And your eyes so green and blue
Will never look at me like that, never again

Cause I have the black thumb
Everything I touch runs dry
I’m so tired of being strong
Just want to curl up and die

You wear a t-shirt in wintertime
As we meet up in the street
And all your words sound so sublime
You’re all I had but could not keep

Cause I have the black thumb
Everything I touch turns black
I’m so tired of being wrong
Teach me how to forget

And among all those empty chairs
Fortune slips right through my hands again
This time it’s too much for me to bear
This time it does not feel the same

I have the black thumb
Everything I touch runs dry
I’m so tired of being strong
Just want to curl up and die
