[Verse: 1]

There was something in your eyes that I saw tonight
I never thought that I would see it
Now there's holes in my walls and there's glass on the floor
And you said you didn't mean it
You went from zero to none in these past three months on your level of affection
I don't wanna be that girl that cries herself to sleep putting up with your rejection cause

[Chorus:]
I can't carry on living life like this, living life like this
This can't be what it is; I don't wanna live my life like this.
I can't carry on living life like this, living life like this
This can't be what it is; I don't wanna live my life like this.

[Verse: 2]

When I try to make sense out of what we have I also fall into depression
Because I know in my heart that we both grown apart ain't no use in us pretending
We never talk on the phone and you're never at home
And if you are there's always tension
I ain't gonna be that girl that ends up staying sitting around just regretting cause


I can't carry on living life like this, living life like this
This can't be what it is; I don't wanna live my life like this.
I can't carry on living life like this, living life like this
This can't be what it is; I don't wanna live my life like this.

[Verse: 3]

I'm tired of fighting, I'm tired of spiting
My life is a storm full of raining and lightening
My insides are pleading of the screaming
And sometimes I just feel like I'm no longer breathing
I look in your eyes all I see is a demon
I'm tired of wearing my heart on my sleeve and I just don't know why I stay
Cause day after day continue to say

[Chorus:]
I can't carry on living life like this, living life like this
This can't be what it is; I don't wanna live my life like this.
I can't carry on living life like this, living life like this
This can't be what it is; I don't wanna live my life like this.

[Repeat to fade]
