I don’t want to hold you if you want to go
I’m not gonna make you feel love if you don’t
I would rather learn what it feels like to burn than feel nothing at all

Oh, I used to treat you sweetly
I would pull you to my chest as you cried about the ocean
Slipping quickly through your hands
You were searching for one grain of sand along an endless beach
As I was building you a castle that you just refused to see

What do I say?
What do I do to show you all the ways
My heart is slowly shattering for you?
What do I say?
What do I do?

I don’t want to hold you if you want to go
And I’m not gonna make you feel love if you don’t
I would rather learn what it feels like to burn than feel nothing at all

You have faded my reality like leaves that turn to dust
Fell asleep inside a fantasy
Then woke up feeling lost
Now I’m terrified and restless
But I just cannot escape
I wish you had words to cool this fever that is killing me

What do I say?
What do I do to show you all the ways
My heart is slowly shattering for you?
What do I say?
What do I do?

I don’t want to hold you if you want to go
And I’m not gonna make you feel love if you don’t
I would rather learn what it feels like to burn than feel nothing at all

I don’t want to hold you if you want to go
And I’m not gonna make you feel love if you don’t
I would rather learn what it feels like to burn than feel nothing at all

I don’t want to hold you if you want to go
And I’m not gonna make you feel love if you don’t
I would rather learn what it feels like to burn than feel nothing at all

I don’t want to hold you if you want to go
I’m not gonna make you feel love if you don’t
I would rather learn what it feels like to burn than feel nothing at all
