All alone in an alleyway,
Staring at my face
In the reflections of broken bottles.
Didn’t know I had this many scars;
I thought I’d won
All of my different battles.

[Chorus 1]
But I’m corrupt, I’ve got nothing left,
Spent all my love trying to forget.
Ignore your calls, and I throw the phone away.
Please believe me when I say:

Don’t hold on,
Don’t hold on,
Don’t hold onto me.
Don’t hold on,
Don’t hold on,
I’ve got nothing left to give.

'Cause I keep on coming, begging for more,
And I’m slowly falling, crashing below,
And the things I used to hold so close,
They burn;
And the love that used to shine so bright
Was shattered like a satellite,
And the rain of sparks to swallow me whole,
Like black holes.
[End Chorus 1]

And I know that you try to stay,
But my awful ways
You will never overlook.
And all the things that hurt me,
They got no remedy,
And they’ll start hurting you too.

[Chorus 2]
'Cause I’m corrupt, I’ve got nothing left,
Spent all my love trying to forget.
Ignore your calls, and I throw the phone away.
Please believe me when I say:

Don’t hold on,
Don’t hold on,
They don’t hold onto me.
Don’t hold on,
Don’t hold on,
I’ve got nothing left to give.

But I keep on coming, begging for more,
And I’m slowly falling, crashing below,
And the things I used to hold so close,
They burn;
And the love that used to shine so bright
Was shattered like a satellite,
And the rain of sparks to swallow me whole,
Like black holes.
[End Chorus 2]

Like black holes.

Don’t hold on,
Don’t hold on,
They don’t hold onto me.
Don’t hold on,
Don’t hold on,
I’ve got nothing left to give.

Don’t hold on,
Don’t hold on,
I surrender in my defeat.
Don’t hold on,
Don’t hold on,
Even black holes let me be.

'Cause I keep on coming, begging for more,
And I’m slowly falling, crashing below,
And the things I used to hold so close,
They burn.
And the love that used to shine so bright
Was shattered like a satellite,
And the rain of sparks to swallow me whole,
Like black holes.

(Don’t hold on
Don’t hold on
They don’t hold onto me)

Like black holes.

(Don’t hold on
Don’t hold on
Even black holes let me be)

Like black holes.
