1: Watch Stitches by Shawn Mendez

 


2:  Check the lyrics of the song

“Stitches”

I thought that I’d been hurt before

But no one’s ever left me quite this sore

Your words cut deeper than a knife

Now I need someone to breathe me back to life

 

Got a feeling that I’m going under

But I know that I’ll make it out alive

If I quit calling you my lover

Move on

 

You watch me bleed until I can’t breathe

Shaking, falling onto my knees

And now that I’m without your kisses

I’ll be needing stitches

Tripping over myself

Aching, begging you to come help

And now that I’m without your kisses

I’ll be needing stitches

 

Just like a moth drawn to a flame

Oh, you lured me in, I couldn’t sense the pain

Your bitter heart cold to the touch

Now I’m gonna reap what I sow

I’m left seeing red on my own

 

Got a feeling that I’m going under

But I know that I’ll make it out alive

If I quit calling you my lover

Move on

 

You watch me bleed until I can’t breathe

Shaking, falling onto my knees

And now that I’m without your kisses

I’ll be needing stitches

Tripping over myself,

Aching, begging you to come help

And now that I’m without your kisses

I’ll be needing stitches

 

[x3:]

Needle and the thread,

Gotta get you out of my head

Needle and the thread,

Gonna wind up dead

 

Needle and the thread,

Gotta get you out of my head, get you out of my head

 

You watch me bleed until I can’t breathe

Shaking, falling onto my knees (falling on my knees)

And now that I’m without your kisses

I’ll be needing stitches (and I’ll be needing stitches)

Tripping over myself,  Aching, begging you to come help (begging, “Baby, please.”)

And now that I’m without your kisses

I’ll be needing stitches

(And now that)

I’m without your kisses,I’ll be needing stitches (And now that) ,I’m without your kisses I’ll be needing stitches
