I don’t wanna be the one to carve the scars,
To draw a line and break your heart,
Do the honours and make a start.
‘Cause I’ve been waiting, procrastinating,
Hiding from facing my conscience,
Free my shoulders, rid me of these monsters
But we’re fading, fading away,
Yeah we’re fading, fading away.

And if the last thing that you’re gonna say
It shouldn’t have ended this way.
I’ll take it with a grain of salt,
And be on my way.
But the last thing that I’m gonna say;
I didn’t have the guts
To put you through the pain.
Take it with a grain of salt,
I’ll be on my way.
We’re fading, fading away.

And I’ve been bleeding guilt from my heart my mind,
I’m sick of doing time for the pettiest crimes.
Don’t judge me with your jury,
Just read the fucking signs.
I want to tear apart, terrorise your heart
It plays me like a game.
I want to feel, I want wounds to heal,
I don’t want to be this safe.
But we’re fading, fading away.

And if the last thing that you’re gonna say
It shouldn’t have ended this way.
I’ll take it with a grain of salt,
And be on my way.
But the last thing that I’m gonna say;
I didn’t have the guts
To put you through the pain.
Take it with a grain of salt,
I’ll be on my way.

You’ve got the answers,
Why don’t you answer my questions?
Why do I live, why do I breathe this tension?
I want war, just to fight, I want dark when it’s light.
I don’t know anymore,
What’s wrong or what’s right.

Fading, fading away.
We’re Fading, fading away.

And if the last thing that I’m gonna say
Shouldn’t have ended this way.
I’ll take it with a grain of salt,
And be on my way.
