I think of the nights you couldn't sleep without the glow of the television screen
Or all of the times that I checked all the locks cause you were afraid of the dark
I called you my wife, and you called me a liar
Well, this, this is all too much

Well, I tend to commit like a blind man in a well with nothing but rope
That he hopes will carry him out
But sees no light at the top

We shared us a place
We made it a home
But I was the ball to your chain
You still have my heart
No matter the condition you leave it in

And I, I cried out to god, I laughed in my car, and I sobbed in my hands
I'm headed, headed for the end
And I can't hold a gun
How selfish I am
And I've been taught what was right, taught how to swim, been taught how to rot because of my sin
Yeah

I was, was not the first, nor the last, but the only one to mean something between your thighs
You were drunk, you were tired and lonely at the time
Could you wear your ring and not think of me?

They say that you're honest when you're drunk
So, were you honestly honest when you slept to the beat of a heart you didn't know
You didn't know, you didn't know, you didn't know
You didn't know, you didn't know, you didn't know
(Beat of a heart, beat of a heart)
You didn't know, you didn't know, you didn't know
(Beat of a heart, beat of a heart)

You didn't know, you didn't know, you didn't know
You didn't know, you didn't know, you didn't know
You didn't know, you didn't know, you didn't know
(Beat of a heart, beat of a heart)
You didn't know, you didn't know, you didn't know
(Beat of a heart, beat of a heart)
You didn't know, you didn't know, you didn't know
(Beat of a heart, beat of a heart)
You didn't know, you didn't know, you didn't know
(Beat of a heart, beat of a heart)

And I hope for the best
But there's nothing left that beats in my chest
