Don't wanna be the one to walk away
But I can't bear the thought of one more day
I think I finally understand what it means to be lost

Can't find the road to lead us out of this
A million miles from where we burned the bridge
Can't keep pretending that every thing's gonna be alright

With the whole world falling down on me

Cross the oceans in my mind
Find the strength to say goodbye
In the end you never can
Wash the blood from your hands

Falling so far from where we were before
You'll never find what you've been searching for
Something to fill the void and
Make up for all of those missing pieces of you

Like I could only dream to do

Cross the oceans in my mind
Find the strength to say goodbye
Everything we believed in was a lie
Cross the oceans in your mind
Find a way to to blur the line
In the end you never can
Wash the blood from your hands

Oh, we never learn
So we fall down again
Hurt me, hurt me
Find your way to dream within this nightmare

Cross the oceans in my mind
Find the strength to say goodbye
Everything we believed in was a lie
Cross the oceans in your mind
Find a way to to blur the line
In the end you never can
Wash the blood from your hands

    When you know you need to back away from the relationship and you don't know how, you fade in your mind to other places searching for the escape route and the strength to follow your decision.

    I'm pretty sure it isn't "hurt me, hurt me." It sounds like the line is "Heaven help me find a way to dream within this nightmare."

    Don’t wanna be the one to walk away
    But I can’t bear the thought of one more day
    I think I finally understand what it means to be lost

    Can’t find the road to lead us out of this
    A million miles from where we burned the bridge
    Can’t keep pretending that every thing’s gonna be alright

    With the whole world falling down on me

    Cross the oceans in my mind
    Find the strength to say goodbye
    In the end you never can
    Wash the blood from your hands

    Falling so far from where we were before
    You’ll never find what you’ve been searching for
    Something to fill the void and
    Make up for all of those missing pieces of you

    Like I could only dream to do

    Cross the oceans in my mind
    Find the strength to say goodbye
    Everything we believed in was a lie
    Cross the oceans in your mind
    Find a way to to blur the line
    In the end you never can
    Wash the blood from your hands

    Oh, we never learn
    So we fall down again
    Hurt me, hurt me
    Find your way to dream within this nightmare

    Cross the oceans in my mind
    Find the strength to say goodbye
    Everything we believed in was a lie
    Cross the oceans in your mind
    Find a way to to blur the line
    In the end you never can
    Wash the blood from your hands

    Don't wanna be the one to walk away
    But I can't bear the thought of one more day
    I think I finally understand what it means to be lost
    Can't find the road to lead us out of this
    A million miles from where we found the bridge
    Can't keep pretending everything's gonna be alright

    With the whole world falling out on me
    Cross the oceans in my mind
    Find the strength to say goodbye
    In the end you'll never get worst of love from your hands

    For it's a fall from where we were before
    You'll never find what you've been searching for
    Something to fill the void and make up for all of those missing pieces of you
    Like I could only dream to you

    Cross the oceans in my mind
    Find the strength to say goodbye
    Everything we believed in was a lie
    Cross the oceans in your mind
    Find a way to draw the line
    In the end you'll never get worst of love from your hands

    And we never learn
    So we fall down again
    Help me help me find a way to dream within this nightmare

    Oooohhh
    Cross the oceans in my mind
    Find the strength to say good bye
    Everything that we believed in was a lie
    Cross the oceans in your mind
    Find a way to draw the line
    In the end you'll never get worst of love from your hands
