I can read the lines
On your face
And they're telling me
Everything I already know
Yeah

I hold you in my arms
But you're light-years away from me
Slowly sinking
Under alone
Yeah

So I act cool
On the outside
But it's eating me
Alive

Cause when it comes to you
There's nothing I can do
I can't make you love me
When you don't
I see it in your eyes
I'm the compromise
I can't take another
Slow goodbye

Sitting in the park
After dark
Smoking cigarettes
Biting on the black of my nails
Cuz all I ever wanted was what you took away from me
Trying to make it right but it's too late

I'm a hopeless case
On the inside
And it's eating me
Alive

Cause when it comes to you
There's nothing I can do
I can't make you love me
When you don't
I see it in your eyes
I'm the compromise
I can't take another
Slow goodbye

I die
A million times
Every time when you
Look me in the eye
And lie
Cuz I've heard it all before
The same game
We go around and around
But I still end up with nothing
But hurting

Cause when it comes to you
There's nothing I can do
I can't make you love me
When you don't
I see it in your eyes
I'm the compromise
I can't take another
Slow goodbye
Yeah

There's nothing I can do
I can't make you love me
When you don't
I see it in your eyes
I'm the compromise
I can't take another
Slow goodbye
