Too close to see so much love we stop breathing
Sweet history ain't enough to keep my heart beating
So many tears for you I sacrificed
Too many lies for you I justified
How can you stand there saying you no who's to blame
How can you act like everything is OK

CHORUS
Don't tell me you love me
An put a gun to my head
And say I'm not trying, oh
Don't tell me you want me
Then come to my bed
And pretend we're not dyin'
One of us has got to leave
Or one of us is gonna be, a casualty

It's cold in here
In my heart still wants you to hold me
Baby, you never hear me
Then when you with me again so lonely

I see you talking but your lips don't make a sound
You see me crying but my tears don't hurt you now
How can you stand there saying you no who's to blame
How can you act like everything is OK

CHORUS
Don't tell me you love me
An put a gun to my head
And say I'm not trying, oh
Don't tell me you want me
Then come to my bed
And pretend we're not dyin'
One of us has got to leave
Or one of us is gonna be, a casualty

Breath in breath out, defeat that doubt
Over and over again
I stand up, to cold remember that I fold
Over and over again

CHORUS
Don't tell me you love me
An put a gun to my head
And say I'm not trying, oh
Don't tell me you want me
Then come to my bed
And pretend we're not dyin'
One of us has got to leave
Or one of us is gonna be, a casualty

One of us has got to leave
Or one of us is gonna be, a casualty
