Hold my heart
Run these scars
with your helpless hands
then bury it in the cold, dark ground

When I rise
When I wake
from this bitter grief
I'll be coming for the heart of me

All the lies
the broken smiles
we lined up in a row
At every sign
we closed our eyes
We didn't wanna know
That some things aren't worth having
Some things are best left alone
ch2. Some things aren't worth keeping
Some things you gotta to let go
ch3. Some things aren't worth saving
Some things you gotta let go

Here's my role
Here's my part
every worthless line
Close the curtains, turn off the lights

Lost it all
Lost myself
chasing my own right,
Oh, the ache she refused to die

Wandering in ruins of the might have been
Staring at the dark clouds
You know the truth
like I know my guilt
Honey, we were never gonna come around
