AFI - We've Got The Knife Lyrics



You've got your pretty face
You've got disarming eyes
You've got such social grace
I've got my pretty spies

I found you lost, misplaced
I loved that lovely guise
I said I'd try my luck
And you said

Well you don't
You don't have to try

I forgot that night
What you said that night
I had the most exquisite time

Well you got that right
But it's not the whole story
I want it all
I court the loveliest of crimes

Say it, as if it were true
We've got the knife
You left behind
Play it just like you do

I wanna hear you mean it
When you say I'm not next in line
I court the loveliest of crimes
Save it, cause we've got the knife

You've got your pretty face
You've got your stunning glow
You've got exquisite taste
I've got the marks to show

You said you'd shoot the stars
But bullets make you blush
Turns out
You liked to play

Play with knives
And I hear that it
Gives you a rush

Well we've got the knife
Yeah, we've got the knife
I've got the knife
You left behind

Well we've got the knife
Now I want the whole story
I want it all
I court the loveliest of crimes

Say it, as if it were true
We've got the knife
You left behind
Play it just like you do

I wanna hear you mean it
When you say I'm not next in line
I court the loveliest of crimes
Save it, cause we've got the knife

I thought that you
Looked familiar
I'd seen your face
Long before that night

Now I wait
For you were no stranger
No stranger to
To taking a life

I court the loveliest of crimes

Say it, as if it were true
We've got the knife
You left behind
Play it just like you do

I wanna hear you mean it
When you say I'm not next in line
I court the loveliest of crimes
Save it, cause we've got the knife

We've got the knife

  4. ant awesome

    asking for it to a fire inside love this band till death

    Jade Amethyst

    Did I just have a stroke?

  5. Andy Lara

    AFI is such an underrated band

  6. A horny Cat

    The song is alright.
    But the ending is soooo dull
    its like -We´ve got the knife- but with a low voice it just doesnt fit the rythm
    Dont get me wrong im not expert in music composing just saying it kinda ruins your inspiration lol if we could call it that (excuse my mis-spells xD)

    kwstas psirras

    i find that part super .

  7. Isabella DeBlasis

    I saw them at the KROQ weenie roast when I was really little. I want to see them again :/

  8. MickeRamone

    This song is a pure fucking masterpiece! ..though it requires a few listens before you fall for it....but when you do...u fall for it DEEPLY....god damn...such a good song

  9. thirtysevenism

    Praying they play this in October!

  10. H.M Margaret

    well damn, I wish I bought this album on itunes..

  12. Alphoter

    so, you saw em in concert at the end or what?

  13. e__x__n

    Trust me, It's totally worth it. I saw them in 2010 in Milwaukee, and despite the fact that it was pouring rain the entire time, it was the best day of my life.

  14. Aaron Grey

    seeing them in concert still top of my bucket list :)

  15. D.J. Bidoof

    i saw them in 2003. omg, greatest shit ever...

  16. tehShikari

    I hate you both xD I went to their gig in London several years ago, but couldn't meet, although i had a backstage pass :/ :/ :/ :/ :/ :/ :/ :/ My dad was in a hurry, because he was at work :/ :/ :/ :/ :/ :/ :/ :/ :/ :/
    But next time I go to their gig, I'll see them no matter what that costs me :D

  17. jakob ponce

    damn i remember when they had there live show for this album in Austin,Texas(: shit was crazy

  18. Alex Salvaggio

    Jade will most likely come out! he's so down to earth, all of them are really.

  19. DEATHBYGUMMYWORMZ

    from the art of drowning to sing the sorrow and now crash love. man AFI always makes my days that much better X)

  20. ExNoctemNacimur

    AFI
    Y U NO ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM

  21. alexinsc2008

    I think the bonus disc is better than the entire album.

  22. nim

    i like that a lot of afi fans have afi related usernames...jus' sayin'. (: this song is amazing. :'D

  23. aomimezura11

    @XxMagentaMcKinleyxX
    agree. i don't like their old punk stuff, but Black Sails and on are positively orgasmic... even blakq audio is good!

  24. nickxclassic

    im not gonna hate on new afi, some of their new stuff is good. but compared to what they were, its VERY very dissapointing

  25. ExNoctemNacimur

    @SummerShudder1120 wish they'd go to either dubai or singapore

  26. Anna

    @TheMightySkub As a bonefied AFI fan, I have to say that half the reason that I like is them is because of their awesome live shows.

    ... Which I have never got to go to, but am forced to secondhand via YouTube.

  27. siriuslyawesome345

    @DanielleLovesAFI I hope you do, it's amazing<3 :D

  28. Munro Cerulli

    @DanielleLovesAFI i got to see them when they came to dallas with greenday.. lol davey dropped to his knees to scream and my big bro's like "did he just fall?" lol it was funny

  29. Philipp Weber

    @GreyShadowUchiha I had the same "strange" feeling, but it really grew on me. I think, this strange tune is what they really wanted you to hear - it fits the lyrics. Now it's one of my favorite songs on Crash Love (especially because Davey sings with his high "STS" voice in the chorus)

  30. Matthew Regier

    Surprisingly good live performance. And I'm not even a fan of AFI and I have to give them points for best live show at EdgeFest.

  31. Alex Salvaggio

    That's amazing! I'm going to see them again this weekend! I have this poster that our group will be dancing around with before the show starts and it says 24 hour party zone lol I hope I get hunter to sign it.

  32. rockerchick1378

    I would LOOOOOVE to see them in concert! and meeting them could be AMAZING!

  33. Alex Salvaggio

    Haha, yeah I can't believe I did it myself. Same here!(: I'm glad you loved it.

  34. Rio Collins

    im seein them in april;. il b even more chuffed if i meet Jade, hes my fukin hero!

  35. Alex Salvaggio

    Haha, that's what I thought too since it was my very first AFI concert. I actaully spoke to Davey on Rockline on Monday, so whenever they do radio things try to call in too:) & no problem and I did, it was like the best night of my life!

  36. Alex Salvaggio

    @DanielleLovesAFI that's awesome. I saw them live about two weeks ago. I waited outside by their tourbus and I got to meet all of them, it was amazing. Depending where you go, if it's not like a big venue, go out by their bus & they ususally come out and sign stuff and you get to line up and meet davey!(:

  37. Rio Collins

    Its wel gud

  38. 7ye

    Gotta fix the title dude
