We scratched our names 
In that oak tree
'Cause I loved you
And you loved me
A jagged little heart so the whole town knew it
 Carved in the bark with an arrow through it
Well I came out here to see it one more time

And I got my chainsaw 
Oh you know it's got to go, it's such a shame y'all
But I ain't gonna be happy 'til those names fall
And I'm sittin' on a stump 

Love is shady 
Love is tragic 
It's hard to bury the hatchet 
Holdin' a chainsaw 

I guess all those years
They don't mean a thing 
Now I can't wait
To count those rings  Nothing left of us but dust and splinters 
A big pile of wood to keep me warm through the winter 
'Cause I don't have you

But I got my chainsaw 
Oh you know it's got to go, it's such a shame y'all
But I ain't gonna be happy 'til those names fall
And I'm sittin' on a stump 

Love is shady 
Love is tragic 
It's hard to bury the hatchet 
Holdin' a chainsaw 

Just a lil' old chainsaw 

I remember what you said that night 
That you would love me for the rest of your life
We wrote forever with a pocketknife 
But forever's goin' down tonight 

'Cause I got my chainsaw 
It's got to go, it's such a shame doll
But I ain't gonna be happy 'til those names fall
And I'm sittin' on a stump 

Love is shady 
Love is tragic 
It's hard to bury the hatchet 

Love is shady 
Love is tragic 
It's hard to bury the hatchet 
Holdin' a chainsaw 

 Chain chain chain-saw
