Too late this is not the answer
I need to pack it in
I can't pull your heart together with just my voice alone
A thousand shards of glass I came to meet you and
You cut the piece out of me
And as you ripped it all apart that's when I turned to watch you
And as the light in you went dark I saw you turn to shadow
If you would salvage some part of you that once knew love
But I'm losing this, and I'm losing you

Oh I've gotta turn and run
From faces that you never see
Oh, I've gotta save my blood
From all that you've broken
Pack up these pieces of me

It's too late now to stop the process
This was your choice, you let it in
This double life you lead is eating you up from within
A thousand shards of glass you pushed beneath my skin
And left my lying there to bleed
And as you showed me your scars
I only held you closer
And as the light in you went dark
I saw you turn over
I wanted always to be there for you and close to you
But I'm losing this,
And I'm losing you

Oh, I've gotta turn and run
From faces that you never see.
Oh, I've gotta save my blood
From all that you've broken
Pack up these pieces of me
(The broken pieces)
Pack up these pieces of me
(The broken pieces)
And pack up these pieces

Maybe without me you'll return
To all the beauty I once knew
But if I stay I know
We will both be drowned by you holding onto me

Oh, I've gotta turn and run
From faces that you never see
Oh, I've gotta save my blood
From all that you've broken
And pack up these pieces of me
(The broken pieces)
Pack up these pieces of me
(The broken pieces)
And pack up these pieces of me

    My OpinionFor some reason, this has always reminded me of vampires. I have no idea why, since I don't give a rip about that kind of stuff but...love the song anyways :)

    Song MeaningPersonally I think this song is about a destructive relationship (romantic, familial etc). She's talking about how she wants to help them but being that close to them is too painful. Great song!
