lyrics

You're like a rose bent in the wind
So beautiful but laced with sin
A curse upon the hearts you pick
The way you love still makes me sick
If I could rid you of my dreams
And cut the life from every scene
I'd leave you emptier than me
Then let you cry yourself to sleep

If you leave then take my heart 'cause I don't need it
If you go then take my soul 'cause I swear I'll never get to call it home

I burnt your bridges through this town
I wish you luck on getting
You'll face the demons in my head
So cut me down and come back again
I wrote this song to help you see
Your life means nothing else to me
I'll drown the memories and regrets
And rise above with what is left

If you leave then take my heart 'cause I don't need it
If you go then take my soul 'cause I swear I'll never get to call it home

No you can't turn the page, 'cause I'm ripping through the sick excuse you gave
No you can't run away, if you're sorry well this all has come too late

If you leave then take my heart 'cause I don't need it
If you go then take my soul 'cause I swear I'll never get to call it home
If you leave then take my heart 'cause I don't need it
