Save Your Scissors


Tonight whilst listing new items in my Etsy shop, I am enjoying my music via iTunes DJ, for the element of surprise, which I personally love. I always am reminded of a song I used to love that got lost for a while. Anyway, that's exactly what happened just a few minutes ago, and it totally made my night! My iTunes DJ decided to bring my very favorite song from a few years ago, "Save Your Scissors" by City & Colour (aka Dallas Green). I used to listen to this song on repeat on my rooftop in NYC. I miss that rooftop even more now that I'm listening to this song...I really must blog soon about my days in NYC :)

Ok kids, check out the song and lyrics, I REALLY encourage you to read along with the lyrics as the song plays. Magic, pure magic! Enjoy!

"Save Your Scissors" by City & Colour

So go on
And I will refrain
And I'll keep on running this neverending race
maybe next time will be the right time
and maybe next time will be your time

So save your scissors
For someone else's skin
My surface is so tough
I don't think the blade will dig in
Save your strength
Save your wasted time
There's no way that I want you to be left behind
Go on save your scissors
Save your scissors

So why does it always seem
That every time I turn around
Somebody falls in love with me
This has never been my soul intention
And I have never claimed to have patents on such inventions

Just save your scissors
For someone else's skin
My surface is so tough
I don't think the blade will dig in
Save your strength
Save your wasted time
There's no way that I want you to be left behind
Go on save your scissors
Save your scissors

There is something that I must confess to you tonight
To you tonight
And that is I expect nothing less from you tonight
From you tonight

Go on save your scissors
Save your scissors
Save your scissors

I love City & Colour :) Actually Dallas Green sings on a song by the Neverending White Lights as well (who I just blogged about ... must be a music blogging night lol). Check out "The Grace" on their myspace page if you'd like... Dallas is the vocalist for the song.
