There was so much on the line I wasn't ready to give up any time soon You built these walls of lies I bet you didn't know that they'd come crashing down half past two You ruined us and I won't let you stay The fire burning in my eyes will soon fade away You made some other plans I wish I hadn't seen that you were gonna sleep with another man You thought you were so sly But my defenses triggered and now I see through your lies You ruined us and I won't let you stay The fire burning in my eyes will soon fade away Just how could you break my heart in two? There's blood on your hands and I hope you can't sleep again There's a thousand different ways this could have gone But your selfishness got the best of you When there's a fire I will fight it off Because love doesn't run for the nearest exit You ruined us and I won't let you stay The fire burning in my eyes will soon fade away Just how could you break my heart in two? There's blood on your hands and I hope you can't sleep again You ruined us You ruined us You ruined us

I don't know now where I'm going anymore, anymore Ever since you left me and he walked you out the door, the door I was blind but now I see that you're not here right in front of me Was he worth it? All the pain that you put me through is so insane Don't you worry 'bout me I'll be okay The way you left me like this makes me want to say I can live without I can live without I can live without you I don't know how my heart is beating anymore, anymore Caught you cheating on me as I fell to the floor, you whore I was lost but now I found that I'm better off, you lost this round I have moved on for the best Now I'll find my heart within my chest Don't you worry 'bout me I'll be okay The way you left me like this makes me want to say I can live without I can live without I can live without you So don't come crawling back to me When he leaves you alone again So don't come crawling back to me When he breaks your heart again So don't come crawling back to me 'Cause I can live without you

Twenty-Three 05:48
We were so young not knowing what to do with all our love I was so naive, so blind to see that you were just a thief You stole everything I have ever loved and ever cared about So I will fight to pick up every piece of me you left behind At the age of twenty-three I fought a war I could not see Though no blood was ever shed My soul's left fractured and dead without you without you It's been some time since you've rang my line Why haven't you called me? There was no "goodbyes" or "I will see you soon" It was all too sudden You left with him and now I'll never see it any other way Was I not good enough? I wanted to do everything to make you stay At the age of twenty-three I fought a war I could not see Though no blood was ever shed My soul's left fractured and dead without you without you Now is my time to shine To break the mold and be more than fine I'm so sick of crying all night Over someone who never did me right So now I'll sing this song tonight To let you know To let you know that At the age of twenty-three I fought a war I could not see Though no blood was ever shed My soul's left fractured and dead without you without you without you without you

It's been twenty-one days since you last spoke to me Yesterday would have been our anniversary I woke up from a dream that day That felt so real I was okay You said "I love you, you'll always be mine" But when I reached out to feel you there Empty sheets lie cold and bare 'Cause you're not there and you're never coming back Now I know why my bones cry 'Cause my eyes tell my heart what it don't realize I need to break you free of my head 'Cause I still only sleep on my side of the bed

The days grow darker Seasons change and bring in summer's end Our love was brighter But everything that was green turned to grey They say the nights are the hardest But waking up without you kills me most My head can't even start to fathom Why you'd stand aside and just watch me burn The days after Fall are the hardest ones of them all For Winter sets right in The cold is lonely and he's my friend The snow gets higher I forfeit myself to your blame My worth sinks lower And I hate you for it all the same Why is it that I'm always chasing Down the one's that want to run away? It leaves me feeling lost and stranded Searching for myself in the ash and flame The days after Fall are the hardest ones of them all For winter sets right in The cold is lonely and he's my friend The days after Fall are the hardest ones of them all
