I work in the dead of night When the roads are quiet No one is around To track my moves 
Race in the end of lights To find the gate is open
She's waiting in the room
I just slip on through 
You get in
You get done
And then you get gone
You never leave a trace or show your face
You get gone
 Should have turned around
And left before the sun came up again But the sun came up again  Enter the morning light
To find the day is burning the curtains and the wine
In a little white room
No, I'm not alone Her head is heavy on me
She's sleeping like a child What could I do?

You get in
You get done
And then you get gone
You never leave a trace or show your face
You get gone
 Should have turned around
And left before the sun came up again But the sun came up again 
I was a killer, was the best they'd ever seen
I'd steal your heart before you ever heard a thing I'm an assassin and I had a job to do Little did I know that girl was an assassin too
 Suddenly I'm in over my head and I can hardly breathe Suddenly I'm floating over her bed and I feel everything Suddenly I know exactly what I did, but I cannot move a thing Suddenly I know exactly what I'd done and what it's gonna mean to me, mean to me
I'm gone

I was a killer, was the best they'd ever seen
I'd steal your heart before you ever heard a thing I'm an assassin and I had a job to do Little did I know that girl was an assassin too

She's an assassin She's an assassin She's an assassin She's an assassin and she had a job to do
