She sits alone in a crowded room She says someday will get here soon And when it does Boy, I'm outta here She says I don't remember love But it must be cut above From what's going on around here What is wrong with me? I'm out of love These are the dreams that scars are made of Is it too much to ask to win just once? Just once? She says X marks the spot Where I used to feel Baby it's all right cuz it Never heals What is wrong with me? I'm out of love These are the dreams that scars are made of Is it too much to ask to win just once? Just once? Isn't wanting enough? Isn't wanting enough? What is wrong with me? I'm out of love These are the dreams that scars are made of Is it too much to ask? Is it too much to ask?

So here we are I've seen this place before You look at me as though I'm incomplete How could I offer more? And how, how could I And how, how could I And how, how could I How could I? You look like worry You say I taste like doubt There's no stopping it now 'Cause all I have is all you don't believe All I have, is all that you don't need And how, how could I And how, how could I And how, how could I How could I? It's filling you It's killing me It's filling you It's killing me And how, how could I How, how could I How, how could I How, how could I Ever be enough for you Ever be enough for you Ever be enough for you It's never enough for you Ever be enough for you Ever be enough for you It's never enough for you I'll never be enough for you It's never enough for you It's never enough for you It's never enough for you It's never enough for you It's never enough for you It's never enough for you It's never enough for you It's never enough for you It's never enough for you

I know, it's too late tonight To start a fight I thought maybe just one more And we could end It all Didn't think it'd be this hard Didn't look like so far to fall Oh, I can't save myself So, what am I supposed to do With you? If you left So long ago why are you still here pushing me around? You're a trick of light An illusion, siren song Crashin' me upon the rocks Now I'm breaking, broken and you Want to talk Oh, I can't save myself So, what am I supposed to do With you? When I think about it Can I even doubt it? It kills me how we hold on When I think about it How can I doubt it? We're missing something we never owned Oh hindsight's blind Oh, I can't save myself So, what am I gonna do Without you oh without you Oh, I can't save myself So, what am I gonna do Without you? Without you Without you Without you

Don't you give it up for me Don't you open up your soul And drown in your misery We all know you don't want help You want company Don't you give it up for me Just how long can you bleed? Just how long do you need? Just how long can you bleed? Don't you give it up for me Bandage up your palms again No one can see the blood but you Won't you get up off your knees It's time to run Don't you give it up for me Just how long can you bleed? Just how long do you need? Just how long can you bleed? You can't say Cuz you're so afraid That all that you have Is all you deserve You're so afraid All that you have Is all that you deserve Maybe it is Oh maybe it is Oh maybe it is Oh baby it is

Once I thought the sun would rise again Once I thought the tide would turn Once I believed that starlight could guide me home Now I know that light is old and stars are cold Now I know I'm lost, lost, in the deep blue you Now I know I'm lost, lost, in the deep blue you Once I thought that gravity would hold its ground Once I thought that wishes came true Once I dreamed on dandelions and fairytales Now I know that weeds and thrones can all be blown away Now I know I'm lost, lost, in the deep blue you Now I know I'm lost, lost, in the deep blue you I can fall but there's no down I can scream but there's no sound I can sink but I can't drown What I've lost cant be found I know the facts but thats not proof Every lie becomes the truth what am I supposed to do? I thought I could count on you I can fall but there's no down I can scream but there's no sound I can sink but I can't drown What I've lost can't be found I know the facts but that's not proof Every lie becomes a truth what am I supposed to do?

It draws the faithful to their knees I'm begging, darling, darling, please If you could just send me back home I've watched the cars crash to the sea I've walked the steps of you and me So darling, darling, darling please Send me back home Back home Send me back home The cities burned, the ashen trees I've seen the desert for what it is Cold and hard and barely alive We've drawn the faithful to their knees Our demise will not be televised If only we'd fought for our lives Send me back home Back home Send me back home We've drawn the faithful to their knees Our demise will not be televised If only we'd fought for our lives Send me back home Back home Send me back home Send me back home
