This is going nowhere And we both know That we're treading water Afraid to let go And if I'm being honest I don't think I can let go I will never stop, I will never stop loving you So stay, please stay I will never stop, I will never stop hating you I hate that I feel this way This is my promise, This is my promise to you Even if it kills me I will never stop loving you Loving you We'll just keep trying to convince ourselves We're as happy as we're pretending If we don't admit a thing We'll be just fine But I'm sick of these sleepless nights Wondering where you are and who your with I get so stuck in my head I will never stop, I will never stop loving you So stay, please stay I will never stop, I will never stop hating you I hate that I feel this way This is my promise, This is my promise to you Even if it kills me I loved you once before each calendar page Took us further away from when this all began It's hard to remember way back then Maybe it's better to just forget Well I'll let go if you just let go But I can't keep this up for forever

All my fears Come back to haunt me Like this voice inside my head Telling me I'm a failure, that I'm better off dead Self inflicted doubt crashed like a waive, But things are never as bad as they seem inside my brain Maybe I'm a little too far gone I don't know I'm not quite sure what to think I fear everything, death and life and in between The uncertainty frightens me Save me, save me I fear I am drowning, drowning In the doubts that surround me, I need to get out Watch me, watch me Cause I am hiding, hiding From the truth that scares me Which is most every word I hear So I'll close my eyes And I'll cover my ears And it all will be fine, it all will be okay And when I hear you say The world is a lovely place It makes my head spin Cause all I see is pain, and loss, and shame I try to see past the broken pieces To find the good underneath But my God it seems like everything is broken, including me Yeah I know I'm not perfect either I've got my faults and flaws Like the world all around We're broken one and all And I heard a voice say "This too shall pass So take a breath then put your worries to rest." I wish it were that easy To let go of this weight To put it all behind me Put on a better face But things never seem better till they are And soon is never soon enough for me So I'll try and sleep But never dream

And all those Real friends that you used to have Before you too cool for them Before you got too cool to see That your much more fake than anything Cause I know what hides beneath The fake smiles and fake profiles The life that you try and hide from all those From all those searching eyes From all those searching eyes, Of all your so called friends Who buy and sell compliments Like bonds on a trading floor But you're always wanting more So you strike the pose just right And you post it on every site Hoping they'll see Remember those Real friends that you used to have Before you too cool for them Before you got too cool to see That your much more fake than anything Cause I know what hides beneath The fake smiles and fake profiles The life that you try and hide from all those From all those searching eyes So take another picture I'm not your photograph And see how long it lasts Before you're burned up with the past Cause we're all waiting with baited breath You've got me grasping for air To see what you're gonna do next To see how long you'll forget All your old friends who are more real than you'll ever be Real friends that you used to have Before you too cool for them Before you got too cool to see That your much more fake than anything Cause I know what hides beneath The fake smiles and fake profiles The life that you try and hide from all those From all those searching eyes Sincerity is more flattering than all your posturing could ever be Do you remember, The times we had both good and bad They're gone forever And they're not coming back Sincerity is more flattering than all your posturing could ever be Real people, real life That's all I ask for Everything you say is fake like you And I heard enough and I think I'm through I think I, I think I'm done with you (Don't come back, don't come back anymore) And all your new friends could never be As close to you, as you were to me I hope they, I hope they make you happy Cause I won't I think I'm done with you
