"Character" as written by and Van Hunt....
Faces have trouble smiling
When it's less than a merry affair
When you communicate through the writing on the wall
There's no love for you there

You wanted to draw a picture
But your relationship could never hold a pose
You're left with a roomful of sketches
That only hint at the love you wanted to know

Let it out, let it go
Hold back the tears no longer
Let them fall on the floor
Not on your will to be stronger

Who are you
In the face of disappointment?
Where is your character
The one who keeps you going?
The one who keeps you going

Caught you by surprise
How time changes people and places
Would you guard over your ruins like you're doing
If you knew your first kiss was your greatest?

Let it out, let it go
Hold back the tears no longer, listen
When you work too hard to get along
Maybe it's time you moved on

Who are you
When heavy weather is blowing?
Where is your character
The one who keeps you going?

Who are you
When heavy weather is blowing?
Where is your character, baby
The one who keeps you going, going?

The one who keeps you going, going
The one who keeps you going, going
And going, and going, going

    When it's less than a merry affair
    When you communicate through
    The writing on the wall
    There's no love for you there
    You wanted to draw a picture
    But, your relationship could never hold a pose
    You're left with a roomful of sketches
    That only hint at the love you wanted to know

    Let it out. Let it go.
    Hold back the tears no longer
    Let the fall on the floor
    Not on your will to be stronger

    Who are you
    In the face of disappointment
    Where is your character
    The one that keeps you going
    Who are you
    When heavy weather is blowing
    Where is your character
    The one who keeps you going

    Caught you by suprise
    How time changes people and places
    Would you guard over your ruins like you're doin'
    If you knew your first kiss was your greatest

    Let it out. Let it go.
    Hold back the tears no longer
    When you work too hard to get along
    Maybe it's time you moved on

    Exit the vacant hills
    Look for a new thrill
