If you deny the wounds of your lover, you will discover
That what you had is shattered and wasted
Did you have to take it so far?

The truth exposed and love is devoured
And the ivory tower is coming down
A vow betrayed and honor is broken
The wounds are open and bleeding out

But it's all I can do to carry on
It brings all I fear to life

(chorus)
If you deny the wounds of your lover
You will discover
That what you had is shattered and wasted
Did you have to take it so far?

Should you have to throw it all away?
Did you have to shove it in my face?
Did you have to tear my world apart?
Did you have to take so selfishly?
No matter how you hurt the ones you need?
Did you have to fall so very far?
[x2]

The trigger's warm, the chamber is loaded
Lost in the moment
What went wrong?
There's nothing left, this house has been broken
But still I'm holding, I'm holding on

If you deny the wounds of your lover
You will discover
That what you had is shattered and wasted
Did you have to take it so far?

If you deny the wounds of your lover
You will discover
Oh...
You can see it in your love
The wounds are open and I'm bleeding out
It's so real

If you deny the wounds of your lover
(Now that you've gone so far)
You will discover
(Can you live with what you've done and who you are?)
That what you had is shattered and wasted
(Now that you've gone so far)
(Can you live with what you've done and who you are?)
Did you have to take it so far?
