Life’s a battle and hope’s the cure.

But what do I do when I can’t find hope anymore?

This love is poison and anyone can see

We’re clinging on to something that isn’t real.

I can’t deny that there was something strong,

But just because it was strong doesn’t mean that it wasn’t wrong.

Oh, babe, I’ll never forget you even after you’re gone.

We were fireworks setting the sky on aflame.

Without you, I’m confetti on the floor.

Now we’ve left me with my own sorrows and sins.

I can’t even pretend that you’re here to help me carry on.

Instead of tip-toeing through a mine field,

I’m wading through the rubble we left with me.
