Song Meaning
Verse 1
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
Verse 2
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
Verse 3
Love is shady
Love is tragic
It's hard to bury the hatchet
Holdin' a chainsaw
Verse 4
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
Verse 5
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
Verse 6
Love is shady
Love is tragic
It's hard to bury the hatchet
Holdin' a chainsaw
Verse 7
Just a lil' old chainsaw
Verse 8
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
Verse 9
'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
Verse 10
Love is shady
Love is tragic
It's hard to bury the hatchet
Verse 11
Love is shady
Love is tragic
It's hard to bury the hatchet
Holdin' a chainsaw
Verse 12
Chain chain chain-saw
Verse 13
(Chain chain-saw)
