All the lies I never said
are haunting me, inside of my head:
"Don't tell a soul,
they'll never know
that you're missing him to death"

All the walls are caving in
Now it's safe to say that you win
and this black sea,
Yeah, I'm drowning.
I forget how to swim
at times like this.


when she holds your hand and traces the lines
just remember that I'm doing fine.
what makes me happy is seeing you smile,
even if it means that you can't be mine.


the words carved on my teeth
are getting harder and harder for me to speak
and this heart in my hand
is slowly eroding into a sand
and i know that it's bad
to be this young and so SO mad
at the world and the men
that make me realize that the things i want
are just for dreams


When she holds your hand and traces the lines
just remember that I'm doing fine.
What makes me happy is seeing you smile,
even if it means that you can't be mine.

I'm the worst I've been but I'm fine.
I still can't get you out of my mind.
what makes me happy is seeing you smile
and I'm sorry, but i need you to be mine.
