"There's a million things I haven't done, but just you wait."

Slam my fist in the nearest wall
Break my body until I fall
Somebody save me
Feels like i’m going crazy
All over this town
All over this empty, dead city
That lives without dreaming
And
You are the only thing
That keeps me sane
In this world of storm and darkness
In a world of fire and scorn

Hold on….
To the times we shared
I hope she treats you better now
I hope she treats you better than I ever could
Hold on…..
To all the second guessing
Everything pressing
Us to the breaking point
Us to the breaking point
Hold on to every painful memory
It’s all that’s left of me

Slaving over syllables again
Trying to pretend
That nothing even happened
I drown in words
You
Used to keep me safe
We
Used to laugh all day
But every moment you’re not here
Is every time a brand new tear
And

Hold on….
To the times we shared
I hope she treats you better now
I hope she treats you better than I ever could
Hold on…..
To all the second guessing
Everything pressing
Us to the breaking point
Us to the breaking point
Hold on to every painful memory
It’s all that’s left of me


I hate myself for letting go
I hate myself and that you know
Only you can save me
From going crazy
All over this town
It’s starting a riot
But still…
I drown in words!

When i think i finally see you
It’s a shadow on the wall
And I hear my own cries
Deep into the night
But I swear to God
I thought I saw your eyes

Hold on….
To the times we shared
I hope she treats you better now
I hope she treats you better than I ever could
Hold on…..
To all the second guessing
Everything pressing
Us to the breaking point
Us to the breaking point
Hold on to every painful memory
It’s all that’s left of me

It’s all that’s left of me...
