I've still got scars running up and down my arms
From the last time you did me any harm
It wasn't me, it was the serpent in the tree
Let's burn it down or cut it out and throw it away
Oh what a terrible mistake

I've still got memories of how things used to be
And oh my God it's apparent how you're blessing me
I lost way, you took the reigns when I lost control
What good does it do to gain it all but lose your soul
Yet 'til this day I still can't honestly say
That I have learned from all of my mistakes
Say you what you mean, Mean what you say

I wore my heart on my sleeve
You told me it wouldn't bleed
It's all your work, Can't you see
I wore my heart on my sleeve
You told me it wouldn't bleed
I've got no reason to believe

You've still got scars embedded in your arms
From the last time I did you any harm
God it was me, not the serpent in the tree
So burn me down, Cut me out, Throw me away
What a terrible mistake

I wore my heart on my sleeve
You told me it wouldn't bleed
Is this your work I see
I wore my heart on my sleeve
You saw you what I didn't see
But the one to blame is me
