well, the build-up seemed so easy
like nothing could go wrong
nothing in this life prepared me
to watch you fighting to hang on

and you put so much in
for nothing in return

and to see you going through this
was the hardest thing i've done
to feel so powerless to help you
once your mind was too far gone

and you were putting so much in
for nothing in return
until they set you free

and now that we've come out the other side
two strangers in a town we recognise
and we're taking our first cautious steps outside
to find out why

the ones we love the most we hurt the most
and to the ones we hurt the most we give the most
and the ones that take the most we need the most
oh, and the ones we need the most we build our hopes upon

we build our hopes upon

and you were putting so much in
so much in

and you were putting so much in
for nothing in return
