Problems that keep getting higher
My eyes feel like they’re on fire
From all the tears that came and went
And all the sleepless nights that I’ve spent
Wishing that we could fix everything
That we could strive for something
Something we could redeem
Something we could have saved
But now it’s disappeared like wispy steam.
So is the fighting worth losing it all?
Building it up higher just for us to fall,
To that place where we cannot return,
When will we learn?
We have let all of our bridges burn.
Now we have to live with our mistakes
And stop promising things we know are fake.
I thought my mind was something you could not shake,
But I also thought my heart
Was something that was too strong to break.
The time we spent together we will never get back
But that’s fine with me, I’d rather remember this
Before everything fades to black.
Even after all these years
All the laughter, all the tears,
You’ve picked your stance
And I have mine.
All of these battles have made us blind.
No matter what place I go,
My battle scars will always show.
The only one I could ever let in,
Please know that I’ve loved you even though I cannot win.
You are the one I will never forget,
You are the one I refuse to regret.
But still I will never allow you
To bring me down,
No, I will stand my ground,
I will stay strong,
I know that I have been wrong,
But you will never bring me down.
