I don't want hold you if you want to go,
I'm not going to make you feel love if you don't
I would rather learn what it feels like to burn
Than feel nothing at all

Oh I used to treat you sweetly
I would pull you to my chest
As you cried about the ocean
Slipping quickly through your hands
You were searching for one grain of sand
Along an endless beach
As I was building you castle
You just refused to see
What do I say, What do I do
To show you all the ways
My heart is slowly shattering for you
What do I say, what do I do

I don't want hold you if you want to go,
I'm not going to make you feel love if you don't
I would rather learn what it feels like to burn
Than feel nothing at all

You have faded my reality
Like leaves that turn to dust
Fell asleep inside a fantasy
Then woke up feeling lost
Now I'm terrified and restless
But I just cannot escape
I wish you had words
To cool this fever that is killing me
What do I say, What do I do
To show you all the ways
My heart is slowly shattering for you
What do I say, what do I do

I don't want hold you if you want to go,
I'm not going to make you feel love if you don't
I would rather learn what it feels like to burn
Than feel nothing at all (x2)

Ohhh oh oh oh (x4)

I don't want hold you if you want to go,
I'm not going to make you feel love if you don't
I would rather learn what it feels like to burn
Than feel nothing at all (x3)
