I can't find a way out
and the clocks are broken, leaking time.
One more second, I may die
'Cuz my wounds are open bleeding life.

You're a problem, I'll never solve.
How do I say it and let it go?
You never told me just what you wanted,
I'm only guessing you're wanting me.
I never said this is what I wanted,
A love that's shaking and all onesided.
So tell me why you have kept me here,
Empty and lifeless, afraid to leave this.
Should I stay and pretend to smile?
There's nothing for me, I need to go.

I can't find a way out
and the clocks are broken, leaking time.
One more second, I may die
'Cuz my wounds are open bleeding life.

Where do you go when your eyes are closed?
Why do you waste it all for show?
Am I there when your eyes are closed?
Am I wasting this all for show?

Am I wrong? Is this wrong?
Is it a lie? You always lie.
Look at you, already gone..
But expecting me here waiting for you when
you're feeling lonely.

I can't find a way out
and the clocks are broken, leaking time.
One more second, I may die
'Cuz my wounds are open bleeding life.

And I will never know
why I let myself be broken.
But when this rip becomes a tear,
I'll have lost the will for hoping.

If i stay I risk losing a part of me that i once loved.
And you're not worth that loss,
I'll chalk it up to broken hearts.
If I'm strong and I dig myself out,
I'll live.

I can't find a way out
and the clocks are broken, leaking time.
One more second, I may die
'Cuz my wounds are open bleeding life.
I'm not ready to give my life

    "If i stay I risk losing a part of me that i once loved.
    And you're not worth that loss,
    I'll chalk it up to broken hearts. "

    General CommentI think this song is about a guy who only wants to be with a girl when he feels like. Not as an ongoing things, just whenever he feels like it. The girl is giving her all to the guy and she feels like she's falling short and that it's not enough. She's beginning to get frustrated wasting her time on this guy.

    "And I will never know
    why I let myself be broken.
    But when this rip becomes a tear,
    I'll have lost the will for hoping."
    She's regretting letting herself getting so caught up in the feeling and she feels like she's at the end of her rope and she knows that she's eventually going to give up hoping he'll change.

    "If i stay I risk losing a part of me that i once loved.
    And you're not worth that loss,
    I'll chalk it up to broken hearts.
    If I'm strong and I dig myself out,
    I'll live."
    I think 'the part of me I once loved' is her self-respect because she doesn't like how much she's hurting herself trying to keep them intact. She realises that her self respect is worth more than a guy and a broken heart and eventually she'll get over it.
