Can hold my breath only for a little while
Until reality starts sinking in
Once again I'm settling for second best
Turn the page and skip
To the end to where I
Swore that I would try
Since the last time I crossed that line
In the back of my mind I know

It only hurts when you're eyes are open
Lies get tossed and truth is spoken
It only hurts when that door gets opened
Dreams are lost and hearts are broken

Miles away promise from a burning bed
Two worlds should never collide
One word would end it if you ever heard
Tear the page out that
Reminds me when I
Swore that I'd be strong now the next
Time has come and gone
Well maybe I'm wrong I know

It only hurts when you're eyes are open
Lies get tossed and truth is spoken
It only hurts when that door gets opened
Dreams are lost and hearts are broken

I know what your feeling
Its hard to believe in
Someone, someone, who's not there
I know that you're waiting
Cause love is worth saving
But only for So long, so long, so long

I swore that I would try
Since the last time, the last time

It only hurts when you're eyes are open
Lies get tossed and truth is spoken
It only hurts when that door gets opened
Dreams are lost and hearts are broken

It only hurts when you're eyes are open
Lies get tossed and truth is spoken
It only hurts when that door gets opened
Dreams are lost and hearts are broken
