Track Name: Drown
There's a tightness in my chest as it holds my heart together
Because it's shattered, and I'm still so very far from getting better
And at the drop of a hat, you threw away what we had before
Making up excuses why you didn't want me anymore

How do you suddenly decide not to care anymore at all?
The drawer of things you gave me, the letters you wrote on my wall
And the promises you made that day we were sitting in the sand
You broke them like you broke me, I'll never open up again

It's so very dark down here, and I'm running out of breath
Are you happy now? You won, you took all that I had left
All the time I thought you saved me, you didn't care, you pushed me down
And in the silence left behind you, all that's left to do is drown

I tried to make excuses for every failure that you made
And everything I cared about, I threw it all away
Because I convinced myself you were someone worth being perfect for
And every time you pulled away, I only gave you more

But now all I kept for myself is the barest skin and bones
You've sucked me dry, you gave nothing back with which to fill my own
And all the dreams I had, the plans I made before the fall
They're dying one by one without the love that fueled them all

I could've sworn it was love at first kiss
It's not supposed to end like this
Please say you didn't mean it, it was all a mistake
That you love me still, you'll be here when I wake
And I'm scared and I'm lonely, I'm useless and weak
Though it hurt, just the thought of you kept me on my feet
When did you decide that everything went wrong?
Now you've broken my heart and stolen my song

It's so very dark down here, and I'm running out of breath
Are you happy now? You won, you took all that I had left
All the time I thought you saved me, you didn't care, you pushed me down
And in the silence left behind you, all that's left to do is drown, drown
