My heart is shattered
gotta let it bleed
A cold vein opened
For the world to see

Your cryin’ eyes remind me
of the man I used to be
I cut you down, I hurt you
cuz I was not free

Every sunset, every raincloud
We watched go by
The land went dry
And our love flowed

slippin’ thru the cracks
of a broken heart
only lovers know


You fill my mind
My heart and soul
and we both know
We can’t let go

Verse 2

Oh my baby
I’ll tell you what I know
This sweet, thorned rose
A flame burned slow

It’s been so hard
you’re not the only one to blame
didn’t love you best I could
Didn’t do the things I should

But understand I can’t go on
with the same hard times
Across our cool kitchen
sharing empty lines

Hollow howls in the hallways
Empty crying choir
We need to cool down
Or burn up in the fire

Chorus 2:

Jump this fire for you
Whatever else I gotta do
I’ll kill my pride
To keep this heart alive


Oh baby baby
Gotta give me just one more chance
Never do it again
I swear
Never do it again
