If I could make a list
Of my mistakes and regrets
I'd put your name on top
And every line after it

Because every inch of hope
Becomes a world of shame
I've had to walk through
Each and every day

And if I screamed "you were wrong"
At the top of my lungs
It would never return
All the faith that I've lost

Because there is nothing left to say
That has not been said
If I shouted, you wouldn't listen
I dought it'd even sink in

If you forget how to feel
Reach inside your chest
Is there a heart beating?
Is there just emptiness?

    the lyrics to this song and the way it sounds comes together so well. for me, this is one of those songs that you could be happy listening to if you get dumped. the line "if i could make a list of my mistakes and regrets, i'd put your name on top and every line after it" is just so great.
