New Found Glory – On My Own lyrics

Carried you across the nation
But my modesty wouldn't cave in
Until now I'd hold my breath
But no need when you broke the pact
I'd open doors, you'd close them
Behind when I wasn't looking
I'd clean up your mess
But now I get to sweep you under the rug

So I'll erase your name
Start again
Make it clear
So there's no more question
Words are empty
Now they know
Erase your name
And do it again
On my own

I'd have ideas, you'd claim them
Behind if I wasn't looking
You're colder than winter
But now I'm smiling under the sun

A picture of me standing next to you
Woke to find I'm a cheap headline
After years I spent breaking stereotypes
Now my skin's stained
I'll shed and do it again.
