lyrics

I miss the way that your eyes
Seem to shine like stars when you see something you like
When did my appeal disappear?
I don't know what to do, 'cause all I feel is love and fear
Promised myself I wouldn't change for anyone
But where's the fun in being alone?
I'll keep on believing that there's more
'Cause false hope is what I live for

I showed up wearing my best shade of fine
I left bearing scars and bloodshot eyes
You seem to think that love is a war
So here's my defense: all these sad songs are yours

Convince me that I wasn't everything
You wanted in your little fantasy
There's a fine line between the black and white
And I'm walking down the middle, just trying not to pick a side
I shiver, my lips quiver
The fire in my soul isn't big enough to keep me warm
I don't hate you
I just hope you'll stop feeling so sorry for yourself

I showed up wearing my best shade of fine
I left bearing scars and bloodshot eyes
You seem to think that love is a war
So here's my defense: all these sad songs are
Nothing in the world could make up for this
My heart has a limit and you're pushing it
You started a war you can't win
So don't cry to me when this comes to an end

How can I push my luck when it was never by my side?
Something is eating me alive

I showed up wearing my best shade of fine
I left bearing scars and bloodshot eyes
You seem to think that love is a war
So here's my defense: all these sad songs are
Nothing in the world could make up for this
My heart has a limit and you're pushing it
You started a war you can't win
So don't cry to me when this comes to an end
