Latley I've been wondering how these words would sound
If they were sung out loud instead of written down
Because this could be a letter if I could find the pen and paper
To tell you how, I'll only let you down

If I had any heart left, I'd give it all to you
To make up for the time spent, not telling the truth

Now all the hours, weeks and months
Just seem to merge right into one
I lost track of where I'd been
'Cause I've been chasing my own tail
And running in circles for so long
I need to find myself again

If I had any heart left, I'd give it all to you
To make up for the time spent, not telling the truth

I've compiled a list of all the places I wanna see before I die, but I know I won't

I always drink too much and never sleep enough
I'm still a liar and I think I'll always be...

If I had any heart left, I'd give it all to you
To make up for the time spent, not telling the truth

    He regrets things he did during a relationship, all the little white lies he told, about drinking and cheating, and he regrets that he has no heart left to give this girl, even if he wanted to

    This song makes me think a lot.
    I made a friend online and we have talked for almost 6 months everyday sometimes for 12+ hours straight. The thing is i lied. Changed my name for safety and i get paranoid so much. I said things to make him stay friends with me like being one year older than i am but now all of that i said has gone away and i am myself and it turns out i didn't need to lie we are friends because we are so alike but the lies are still there and i don't know how or when to come clean :/ i feel i should because i feel awful about the whole thing but i'm scared he'll not want to talk to me anymore for lying. :s a good friend like this is hard to find and i don't want to lose it now i have one. Greedy i know, selfish i know, i've made my bed now i have to sleep in it but i just wish it could be different. :'(

    Commitment issues. Not knowing what you've got til it's gone, and you can never get over the pain of knowing you hurt someone you loved, and still love, so much.
