Six Blade Knife

The fourth song from the Dire Straits debut album is the song “Six Blade Knife.” The debut album of Dire Straits was released in 1978 with two sides of the album. The first side one was with the five songs where “Six Blade Knife” get the place and the other side two with four songs. Below are the lyrics from the song “Six Blade Knife.”

In this song, Mark Knopfler uses the knife as a metaphor for her actions and her love – cold and sharp, like the blade of a knife. She carries with her a six-bladed knife, like a Swiss Army knife to use as a tool for any problem, as well as the guitar that has six steel strings. “One blade for breaking my heart, one blade for tearing me apart.”

He just wants to break that bad relationship and be independent and free again: “I’d like to be free of it now, I don’t want it no more.” Below is the lyric of the song, enjoy.

Lyrics

Your six blade knife can do anything for you
Anything you want it to
One blade for breaking my heart
One blade for tearing me apart
Your six blade knife – do anything for you

You can take away my mind like you take away the top of a tin
When you come up from behind and lay it down cold on my skin
Took a stone from my soul when I was lame
Just so you could make me tame
You take away my mind like you take away the top of a tin

I’d like to be free of it now, I don’t want it no more
I’d like to be free of it now, I don’t want it no more

Everybody got a knife it can be just what they want it to be
A needle a wife or something that you just can’t see

Your six blade knife, you strong
Yes and it’ll do me wrong
Your six blade knife – do anything for you
Do anything, anything
