lyrics

It was not my fault they flew away, and I'm left here to sway alone....
Right there, I'm so empty inside....
I'll try to compensate to bring myself a lie...

They only want to use you, so step outside you skin!
They only want to use you, it's not safe by them!

You say stay happy but it's kind of hard...
When life seems to get in the way of....
and hope, she drains out of my fingers in the rain.
and I can't stay but I miss you!

They only want to use you, so step outside you skin!
They only want to use you, it's not safe by them!

So much time trying to make it right, make it strong, make it hard, dope it up, stick it in, make it strong.
and I would give almost anything to be enough....
So much time trying to make it right, make it strong, make it hard, dope it up, stick it in, make it strong.
and I would give almost anything to be enough....For you.... (Dammit all!)

You will fall! and I promise you...
It's ok to cry! It's ok to feel so lonely inside!
You will fall! and I promise you...
It's ok to feel so messed up, it's ok that you always feel so used!
(It's not a threat) You will fall (It's a promise)! and I promise you...
With the deepest sincerity I know when there's not another word to say....
You will fall (I am a threat)! and I promise you...
It's because of the people like you I love, so hard, so true, and so real.....

And somewhere....
We move in through separate hemispheres.
And Somehow....
We collide in 2s, we connect.
And over and over again.....
The force of you breaks me in pieces.
You'll remember my name.... When you're done with me....
