This time
I'm done with always screwing up
I'm sick of one direction down
I'm a broken picture frame
[My whole world twisted inside out]
Screaming
Are voices like a hurricane
[Telling me to wake up
Get out of bed
Put your feet on the floor]
There's fresh air out the door

Prechorus:
And I've been acting so pathetic
Knocking around like a ball on a string
It's taking time for me to get it
I'm ready and willing to do anything
To make it up to you

My arms are hurting so bad from being so empty
My heart weighs like a ton 'cause it feels so heavy
I'm standing here all alone
Wishing that I could've known
You just can't walk away
From the damage

Last time
Playing with a broken string
It don't matter no one's listening
'Cause losing you has made me see
I've gotta change
Gotta blame it
[All on me]

And I've been acting so pathetic
Knocking around like a ball on a string
It's taking time for me to get it
I'm ready and willing to do anything
To make it up to you

My arms are hurting so bad from being so empty
My heart weighs like a ton 'cause it feels so heavy
I'm standing here all alone
Wishing that I could've known
You just can't walk away
From the damage

My eyes may as well be blind if I just can't see you
(If I just can't see you)
My hands may as well be tied 'cause I just can't touch you
(Touch you)

Before
The smoke can really clear away
From fires
I started yesterday
[I know I've gotta find a way
Somehow I've gotta find a way to wake up]
From the damage

My arms are hurting so bad from being so empty
My heart weighs like a ton 'cause it feels so heavy
I'm standing here all alone
Wishing that I could've known
You just can't walk away
From the damage

My eyes may as well be blind if I just can't see you
(If I just can't see you)
My hands may as well be tied 'cause I just can't touch you
(Touch you)

I'm standing here all alone
Wishing that I could've known
You just can't walk away
From the damage

I'm standing here all alone
Wishing that I could've known
You just can't walk away
From the damage
