lyrics

what was it that i said?
Is this to be the night you can't forget?
am i your best mistake?
am i the thing you most regret?

all this has got to mean something
it hurts too much to be nothing at all
i want to be the worst thing you've ever seen
if i can't be beautiful

and i'm killing myself in increments
i give myself away in bits and pieces
i kill myself in increments
now there's nothing left of me but bits and pieces

and i'm killing myself in increments
i give myself away in bits and pieces
i kill myself in increments
now there's nothing left of me but bits and pieces

and now time goes by and
our blood runs colder
and nothing seems all that important anymore
it's just action, action, reaction
action, reaction, distraction, and then nothing at all

i want to be the worst thing you've ever seen if i can't be beautiful

and i can't be beautiful

I gave you everything i had
then reached for more, but nothing's left
and now every kiss is a mistake
now every heart something to break
now every word just sounds so fake
and no love is permanent

oh i kill myself in increments
i give myself away in bits and pieces
i kill myself in increments
there's nothing left of me but bits and pieces

i kill myself in increments
i give myself away in bits and pieces
i kill myself in increments
there's nothing left of me but bits and pieces

what was it that i said?
is this to be the night you can't forget?
i made a big mistake
but don't make a scene we'll both regret

lets start over with nothing
just you and me you and me and nothing at all

I want to be the worst thing you've ever seen
If I can't be beautiful

and I can't be beautiful

i kill myself in increments
i give myself away in bits and pieces
i kill myself in increments
there's nothing left of me but bits and pieces

and I can't be beautiful

i kill myself in increments
i give myself away in bits and pieces
i kill myself in increments
there's nothing left of me but bits and pieces

and I can't be beautiful

The Public New Orleans, Louisiana

The Public was formed in New Orleans in 2003 by drummer Bryan Besse and guitarist Jack Champagne. Singer Travis Shuler and bassist Ryan Plattsmier joined the lineup and they began work on a few songs influenced by UK post-punk,90s Britpop and American underground alt-rock. They broke up in 2010 a year after losing Plattsmier to suicide. Bassist Ronan Bradley played for the last year of the group. ... more
