Let me tell you the saddest story,
Love lost left broken and empty.
Put my heart in the hands of another.
Set a fire to the past and watched me burn.

Somehow I guess it's better this way.
Looking back, was it all just a mistake?
Thought I could live in the arms of another,
But I guess I wasn't enough for her...

I wanna feel the love you can't live without,
The one that Johnny Cash wrote all his songs about.
But I gave it all away for no return.
Guess it's just another lesson that I'll never learn.

I've been putting myself through your Hell,
Holding on to things that don't even matter now.
You found your place in the arms of another.
But now I see it's just the way the Earth will turn.

I wanna feel the love you can't live without,
The one that Johnny Cash wrote all his songs about.
But I gave it all away for no return.
Guess it's just another lesson that I'll never learn.

Can't seem to fill the void that lives in my chest.
Thought I was what you need but I'm just second best.
I'll never give it all away again, I swear.
Don't even look for a heart, you'll find there's nothing there.

(I can't take it back!)
All the years that we spent together have come to an end.
(Regret is all I had!)
Not sure I would if I could do it all over again.
(I can't take it back!)
The memories, the pictures, I love you's will wither.
(Regret is all I had!)
But this is the last song I'll write about you.

Forget my name.
Forget my face.
It was all just empty... space.
Deadweight; No longer part of me.
