I broke my own heart
When my love stopped surviving
I allowed you inside me
to break and divide me
I continued to share
all the pieces of me
now I'm just sitting here staring...

I can't tell you the feelings
that torment my dreams
that would give you a hand up
and that's not what I need
I continue surviving
but it's starting to wear
I won't hold it much longer
I think it's only fair

In this room I see shadows
they're all memories of you
I realize that it’s worthless
to keep thinking this through
I'm sitting here tear less
but they're stained on my face
only you didn't see them
all you see are your ways

after breaking my heart
pulling closer to God
I think that it's finally
time to make up my mind
get rid of this feeling
that's festering inside
and live out my life
where you can't read my mind
