I won't try to bring you back
I know you're gone
Why do you think I care
I've already moved on

My world is fine without you,
Though I might be alone
I know now
I'm better off on my own

What's so great about him
I don't know what you want anymore
At least I know that I don't need you
I pity that unknowing whore

How do you expect me to give you oxygen,
When I can barely breathe
Just because you're heartless,
You don't have to steal it from me

Empty me now
You have everything I need
Empty me now
'Cause I'm too weak to plead

I can't let you in
I can't let it go
You stay here
Because you don't even know

Free me from this ball and chain
I don't need to be weighed down
I used to pretend you were here
Whether I smile or frown

What's so great about him
I don't know what you need anymore
At least I know that I don't want you
Why do I pity that unknowing whore

Empty me now
You have everything I need
Empty me now
'Cause I'm too weak to plead

Let me breathe on my own
I have my lungs and the last of my dignity
Give me back my heart
Go steal his humanity

Empty me,
Empty me now
Let me breathe
Empty me,
Empty me now
Let me breathe
While I still know how
