Our life was never meant to be
All that it turned out to be for me
Was a memory
Blacked out and buried

And I
I used to know you all too well
I saw this going straight to hell with it
Afraid to walk away or say the things I meant
It wouldn't stop these feelings

But you should know how the story goes
It's a love so hot but then it turns so cold
In time I, I won't get by
Help me, save me, stay with me a little while

I wanna say what my heart can't say to you
It's not enough for a love I never knew
When all that's left is nothing
You get what you get
When you give and you gave it all
When all that's left is nothing
You get what you get
When you give and you gave it all

Was it you
I found you in the corner of the blackest night
I felt your arms around me as you held me tight
If this could be our ending then I'd make things right
I swear I'd never leave your side

If you gave up everything and you moved here with me
I swear I'd do it right I'd be your everything
I'll beg you please
A fuse to light the sign
I'll make you mine and we can just run free

And what a perfect life you'd share with me

I wanna say what my heart can't say to you
It's not enough for a love I never knew
You had the world around me,
But we failed to keep this breathing

I wanna say what my heart can't say to you
It's not enough for a love I never knew
When all that's left is nothing
You get what you get
When you give and you gave it all

It hurts the most when you
You feel that close but you
You can't believe this could be our last goodbye
And when the shots hit you
You're falling back to the
Memories that you see have left you blind
Someway, somehow, someday I'll be just fine

I wanna say what my heart can't say to you
It's not enough for a love I never knew
When all that's left is nothing
You get what you get
When you give and you gave it all
When all that's left is nothing
You get what you get
When you give and you gave it all
