so take the things you want from me and feel free to display
just how i let you use me up and what you get away
with cos you know that i will let you kill me slow
if i cant find the strength to tell you no

to list for me the things you'd change would only case my fear
of what you are unhappy with, it only brings me tears
cos i was so convinced that we were meant to be
you've won over my family and they pressure me

but what i want
seems far from what i have
it seems so much easier
to step aside and laugh
at what seemed to be the death of me
and so far from the truth
well i'm not gonna step aside
and let you swallow up my youth

you know i used to be sad
always feeling unsure
i used to let you tear me down
well not anymore

you made me think i was weak
felt as low as the floor
well i'm not buying your story
no not anymore

i walk away from what was once a stable kind of life
i laugh at love straight in the face and spit into it's eye
there is no simple cure for what made us sure of our choice
no wrong to right or beam of light or voice

to tell you how i feel for you would be the hardest part
to let you know how much i've lost from giving you my heart
is there an easy way to tell you that we're wrong
we're only lying to ourselves pretending we are in a love song
