So I'll do the task for you, I know it's better than a year.
But I'll Have to swallow down these salty tears.

Go on and speak your mind to me, before it becomes unclear.
Tell me those things I didn't see, and what I lacked this whole damn year.
What is gone can never grow back, and now it's time you realize that.
All I have to say, it comes from the bottom of my heavy heart.
Don't cry for me another day, it will take some time to forget you.
I know that you will be okay, I just hope that I won't regret you.

Tell me all the words I want to hear.
I've tried this whole damn time, i've tried this whole damn year.

A promise you can't keep, you can't hold onto me,
And not a day goes by when I don't cry.
I know you'll be okay, I just hope I won't, go on to regret you.

Let go of everything, and try to keep my heart afloat.
Tell me the simple things so I don't feel so damn remote.
We both know on the inside, that we should lead our separate lives.
All I have to say, it comes from the bottom of my heavy heart.

Don't cry for me another day, it will take some time to forget you.
I know that you will be okay, I just hope that I won't regret you.

Look at what we've been through, look at what we've had.
(Go on, Leave me, this is where I want to be.)
Knowing that won't bring it back.
(Go on, Leave me, speaking to you softly.)
Look at what we've been through, look at what we've had.
So Many Things to Treasure.
Knowing that won't bring it back.
(Move on. Go away, it hurts to much for you to stay.)

But if you stay I don't know what to do,
I'll take your head in my hands,
and stare into your face. I'll try to forget all the bad things,
but some things can't be erased.
So leave me standing here. (I'm not here)
So leave me standing here in two. (I'm not here with you)
