*I wasn’t sure on how to label each stanza of the song, so I put letters to organize it so that you can understand which stanzas have the same/similar rhythms.

A
I am trying to fight this pain.
I am trying to look the other way.
But I see you burning in my eyes
Every time I close them.

B
You and her
Away from me.
Me at home
Alone crying.
You and I
Not working out.
I feel myself fading.

A
I am trying to hide my scars
From the death of your great love.
I don’t want you to see me hurt
‘Cause that’d mean you’d won the war.

C
Can’t you see that I am falling?
I am falling to the sound,
The sound of my heart failing.
I just want to know:
Did you love me at all?

B
You and her
Away from me.
Me at home
Alone crying.
You and I
Not working out.
I feel myself fading.

A
I am trying to fight this feeling
That’s building up inside of me.
After my sights rest on your betrayal
I just want to be let go and fly free.

B
You and her
Away from me.
Me at home
Alone crying.
You and I
Not working out.
I feel myself fading.

D
But I’m trapped in this pain
‘Cause I still love you.
I’m attached to your heart
‘Cause I can’t leave you.
But I watch as you walk away far.

And I stare;
It’s all I can do,
Stare
As I reach for you.

It's hard for me to see him with that other girl, the one that he's dating now, because he's moved on from me while I'm still stuck on him. I still love him, and it makes me wonder if he even loved me at all if he's able to move on this fast and leave me so harshly with a broken heart.
