Some say I’ll be better without you
But they don’t know you like I do
Or at least the sides I thought I knew
I can’t beg this time
It drags on as I lose my mind
Reminded by things I find
Like notes and clothes you left behind
Wake me up, wake me up when all is done
I won’t rise until this battle’s won
My dignity’s become undone
So petrified, I’m so scared to step into this ride
What if I lose my heart and fail the climb?
I won’t forgive me if I give up trying
I heard his voice today
I didn’t know a single word he said
Not one resemblance to the man I met
Just a vacant broken boy instead
There will be times
We’ll try and give it up
Bursting at the seams, no doubt
We’ll almost fall apart then burn the pieces
To watch them turn to dust
But nothing will ever taint us
Will he… Will he still remember me?
Will he love me even when he’s free?
Or will he go back to the place where he would choose the poison over me?
When we spoke yesterday,
He said to hold my breath and sit and wait
"I’ll be home so soon, I won’t be late"
But I won’t go
I can’t do it on my own
If this ain’t love, then what is?
I’m willing to take the risk
