now you want to make amends
(pay for mistakes you make over and over again)
are you gonna beg me?
('cause you only tear me up inside)
now you want to be my friend
(but i can't go back without a better defense)
you intoxicate me
(but you have to understand that)
I won't wait forever, I won't wait

[chorus:]
look what you have become
you must make your parents oh so proud
a shell of what I've loved
you're nothing but dead to me now

this chapter starts again
(we try our best to stay away from the past)
we both know the ending
(still it doesn't open up our eyes)
we can't stay our hands
(we convince ourselves that we are different this time)
breaks not worth mending
(still we have to understand that)
we can't say forever
we can't stay

[chorus]

and these decisions, these body rhythms,
your memory's still burned into these arms you used to fill
and this surrender's so far from tender
I can't wait to...

[chorus x2]

nothing but dead (dead!) to me now
