she puts on the light
she looks in the mirror
and cries to herself it's becoming much clearer
that he's not where he says
when he's not hanging with her
flips off the light
and she turns with a shiver

and when he comes home
His Embrace Is So Cold
It's Like Being Caught In A Rough Strangle Hold
Now Her Resolves Gaining Strength
To Tell Him So Long
But For Now She'll Just Keep Hanging On

because the little things remind her
of the good times they have had
whenever she recalls those things
it's hard to think that he's so bad

it seems no matter where she goes
she can hear their song on the radio (radio)
and when she does she smiles to it

but no matter how hard she tries
she can turn it off or let it die
let it die
even though she knows he's running her to ruin

she's falling in love with a new boy and his smile
but she can't admit to herself her heart's run wild
storybook dreams
of a faerie tale life are holding her back
to keep fighting this lost life
but she still holds on, hope he might change
but 100% of the time of the time he's the same

and now her heart has been smashed
her will has been broke
but she clings to the end of that rope

because the little things remind her
of the good times that they have had
whenever she recalls those things
it's hard to think that he's so bad

it seems no matter where she goes
she can hear their song on the radio (radio)
and when she does she smiles to it

but no matter how hard she tries
she can turn it off or let it die
let it die
even though she knows he's running her to ruin

it seems no matter where she goes
she can hear their song on the radio (radio)
and when she does she smiles to it

but no matter how hard she tries
she can turn it off or let it die
let it die
even though she knows he's running her to ruin

    General Commentthe lyrics here for the 2nd verse are wrong...
    And When He Comes Home
    His Embrace Is So Cold
    It's Like Being Caught In A Rough Strangle Hold
    Now Her Resolves Gaining Strength
    To Tell Him So Long
    But For Now She'll Just Keep Hanging On
