You told me to write what I know
And what I know, is not letting go
Maybe the best would be to leave
To leave you be and let your heart bleed

But I can’t
I won’t
I don’t

I tell you every little truth
I dare myself to break the tight noose
You keep them hidden in your heart
And all they do is tear you apart

I can
I won’t
I do

You say you can take every blow
Roll with the punches I hate to throw
But I feel every time I strike
Heartbreak and regret are so alike
