I've been trying to walk out of my past.
Left behind I'm always the last.
I think it's time to let go of this fear
And try to find a way out of here.

I've got to clear out my head from this mess.
It brings me down and leaves me in stress.
I think that with you I made a mistake.
Now I'm motionless in empty space.

Were you scared to be closer to me?
What did you fear?
I let you near but you brought me down here.

Don't you see how everything's holding me back.
Don't you see now everything's holding me back.
I've been hurt, I've been burnt, you could be helping me out.
Don't you see now you're the one holding me back.

You were the one who gave me reasons to try.
The one who left me with anger inside.
I heard your need for me had been replaced
From someone else when you lied to my face.

Were you scared to be closer to me?
What did you fear?
I let you near but you brought me down here.

Don't you see how everything's holding me back.
Don't you see now everything's holding me back.
I've been hurt, I've been burnt, you could be helping me out.
Don't you see now you're the one holding me back.

I just wish it all away.
You just take a piece of me and keep running further.
Will you ever go away?
You don't really wanna stay even though you come closer to me.

Don't you see how everything's holding me back.
Don't you see now everything's holding me back.
I've been hurt, I've been burnt, you could be helping me out.
Don't you see now you're the one holding me back.
