This Is How A Promise Breaks

Don’t ask me what’s wrong.
You know it’s ‘cause you don’t learn,
You know it’s ‘cause you’re pulling me down with you,
And it’s gotten to my head.

Why won’t you open your eyes?
It took you six seconds to destroy everything,
It took me six months to get over everything;
I will never forget what you did to me.

And yet again, I must prepare myself for
Another night spent counting the marks on my ceiling,
Trying to rebuild myself with what you left of me,
Trying to get my head around this mess that I call my life,
I’m struggling to believe anyone could be that heartless.
And yet again, I’m stuck here singing,
“La la la la…”

“Don’t waste your time thinking about him,”
I’m just so sick of thinking about it.
Do you know how hard it is to avoid you?
Why can’t I make sense of this?
Frankly; I don’t know,
But you’ll leave me singing,
“La la la la…”

Fall on your knees,
It’s what we need.
I should have never stopped you.
I can’t believe I believed you.

Well if you want to apologize
You can have my advice.
If I can have your answer.
You won’t take this from me.
This will never be over.

Don’t ask me what’s wrong.
You know it’s ‘cause you don’t learn,
You know it’s ‘cause you’re pulling me down with you,
And it’s gotten to my head.

Why won’t you open your eyes?
It took you six seconds to destroy everything,
It took me six months to get over everything;
I will never forget what you did to me.

Singing,
“ La la la la…”

Singing,
“La la la la…”

This will never be over.

Don’t pretend:
You will never change.
