Drunk on wine, I’m amazing
Bitter Pill; it’s my raising
News at five and at midnight
Caught on tape; serves me right

The crowd around me starts to grow
I can feel the undertow

Anyone with a half a heart would help me out
Before they ever let the other half find out
But if they could see how far I’ve let you down
Anyone with half a heart would let me drown

Flashing lights couldn’t warn her
Paint myself in a corner
Bracing now for the impact
Losing hope, keeping track

Standing on a crumbling wall
Tethered to a cannonball

Anyone with half a heart would help me out
Before they ever let the other half find out
But if they could see how high I’ve built this wall
Anyone with half a heart would let me fall

In the space between sleep and sleeplessness
We redress all our wounds
If we replace all this hopeless hopelessness
Then we could rest

Anyone with half a heart would let me drown
Anyone with half a heart would pull me down
Anyone with half a heart would let me fall
Anyone with half a heart wouldn’t care at all

Anyone with half a heart would help me out
Before they ever let the other half find out
But if they could see how far I’ve let you down
Anyone with half a heart would let me drown
