We’re both such defiant creatures
To feel invincible yet unfulfilling
I don’t think I can shake the feeling
Of my own hand print on my face
Or the fact that we’re both
In this for ourselves
We lie in bed and hide
Our heads beneath the sheets
And we don’t say a thing

Please don’t leave
Don’t think you’ll find another one
To give up quite as much as me
Say you won’t
Find solace in the other ones
They can’t give you anything
I still remember everything
That you have ever said to me

I want to be a better liar
To convince you that I’m a good man
I swear I am but I’ve given you
Enough to doubt in me
That I could never ask for mercy
But I could hold my breath
For a second chance
And you’re rescue me
So I’d never have to plead
And it all stays the same

I still remember everything
That you have ever said to me
About how this is never going to end
Open arms is just a simple phrase
To keep me held at bay
In a place where I may never breathe again
The strong prey on the weak
Oh how I never meant to be
The one to say this never should have been
The one way out of all of this
A long road through unhappiness
Can we get back to where
We were back then again?
