Close To Home – Promise lyrics

My face will be the last thing that you see.
So throw away the past and every promise that you swore you'd keep

Lay down your comfort
So I can tear this apart
It's not a game here
To play emotions with a heart

I'm jumping ship
I'll watch you sink before you take us down
Now safe on shore just like before
I'll watch your body drown
Drown, drown, drown

You took a piece of me
And you called it your own
Why did you call it
Why did you call it your own
I take back everything I said
I take back everything I said
It wasn't worth it in the end

I'm jumping ship,
I'll watch you sink before you take us down
Now safe on shore just like before
I'll watch your body drown

I've never felt this way
(I've never felt this way)
These feelings so strong
How does it feel to know that you are holding on

You said (you said), you'd never let me down
I found a higher place
To watch your body drown

It's your mistake
You tried to play these games
I won't stand up for this
You dug your own grave

My face will be the last thing that you see.
So throw away the past and every promise that you swore you'd keep
(Keep, keep)

I'm jumping ship
I'll watch you sink before you take us down
Now safe on shore just like before
I'll watch your body drown

I've never felt this way
These feelings so strong (so strong)
How does it feel to know that you are holding on

I'm jumping ship
I'll watch you sink before you take us down
Now safe on shore just like before
I'll watch your body drown

I've never felt this way (I've never felt this way)
These feelings so strong (so strong)
How does it feel to know that you are holding on

I'm jumping ship,
I'll watch you sink before you take us down,
Now safe on shore just like before,
I'll watch your body drown
