(Calvin's parts are italicized)

I just can't quite explain
Why it's not the same
With you anymore
It's not that you have changed
Or that we're estranged
I just wanted more

I've always lived my life
Under watchful eyes
Always someone's girl

You only wanted me
As you thought I'd be
Living in your world

(Your insanity
Is not lost on me
Mess around with hearts
So easily broke
I still can't
Believe
It's not all a joke)

What do you know
What do you care
How could you think
Things were okay
How could I know
Behind that stare
You're on the brink
I couldn't stay

(I'm
Scared
Whatever you say
I'm
Scared
You wouldn't stay)

Stop sleeping and start bleeding
I know you're hurt and it's not fair
Stop dreaming and start bleeding
Blood on your shirt and in your hair
It kind of hurts when you're
(Here and) not there

And I can't quite explain
Why you act insane
Why you fail to cope
Something inside your brain
Trips a switch again
And you lose all hope

I'm not responsible
If you lose control
If you go too far
You try and cut yourself
But it doesn't help
It just leaves a scar

(Messing around with
Hands and glass and games of
Smash and and brag, I guess I'll
Have to live with
Cussing out
All of my mistakes)

What do you know
What do you care
How could you think
Things were okay
How could I know
Behind that stare
You're on the brink
I couldn't stay

(I'm
Scarred
Whatever you...
Say
I'm scarred
Anyway)

Stop sleeping and start bleeding
I know you're hurt and it's not fair
Stop dreaming and start bleeding
Blood on your shirt and in your hair
It kind of hurts when you're
(Here and) not there

Stop dreaming and start screaming
It's so hard trying not to care
Stop breathing and start screaming
But you're too much for me to bear
It kind of hurts when you're
(Here and) not there

(Amelia sings Calvin's part here)
What do you know
What do you care
How could you think
Things were okay
How could I know
Behind that stare
You're on the brink
I couldn't stay

(I'm
Scared
Whatever you say
I'm
Scared
You wouldn't stay)

Stop dreaming and start screaming
It's so hard trying not to care
Stop breathing and start screaming
But you're too much for me to bear
It kind of hurts when you're
(Here and) not there
