I use to lay my hand on your heart and pray that I could take the pain away
I would of carried all the weight I would of never let you fall
I wish I had the strength to break the legs of what took you away
You were never mine to save and I was never strong enough

So I just let you go

Now that you're gone
I hope you found peace now
Cause after all that we've been through
Its something I couldn't give you
Now that its over I hope you found closure
Cause after all that we've been through
Its something I couldn't give you

I used to wait till you would fall asleep and lay beside the bed and weep
Because I knew that you weren't mine to keep but I could never let you go
I would of given anything to try to keep you here with me
But I didn't have the things you need so I could never keep a home

And I just let you go

Now that you're gone
I hope you found peace now
Cause after all that we've been through
Its something I couldn't give you
Now that its over I hope you found closure
Cause after all that we've been through
Its something I couldn't give you

And I hate myself
For being human
What good are hearts if you cant use them?
And I hate myself
For being human
What good are hearts if you cant use them?

Now that you're gone
I hope you found peace now
Cause after all that we've been through
Its something I couldn't give you
Now that its over I hope you found closure
Cause after all that we've been through
Its something I couldn't give you

And I hate myself for being human
And I hate myself for being human
And I hate myself for being human
And I hate myself for being human
And I hate myself
For being human.

    General Commentaww i love this song. i feel that its a song about a guy whos in mad love, but he knows it can't work. but no matter how hard he tries to move on or forget, he just can't seem to forget the feelings he has, and thinking of her just reminds him of what he'll never have...

    defenetly top song to listen to...

    General CommentIt acctually reminds me of a death . it reminds me of my cousin who passed away this year and she had lukemia so she was in pain . and in the song it goes that he wants to take the pain away but he wasnt strong enough and he knew that he just had to let them go . because there was nothing he could do . it all fits for me , because it pretty much explains how i felt . especially now that your gone , i hope you find peace now . it just all goes .

    General Commentthis is an AMAZING song by an AMAZING band

    Harlequin89- it fits with ''Because I knew that you were mine to keep'' because he wanted her to be happy with him, he wanted to save her, but couldn't.

    i think of the first part of the song when my dads sick...
