It was on her wedding day when my heart began to stray
Never though I'd make such a big mistake, throw my life away

I've gone days without food
I've went weeks without sleep
Keeping this in
I've got cuts I can't close
I've got wounds that wont heal
It's all your fault
I've been shattered and wrecked
My hands covered in blood
Scars on my skin
I forgot how to feel now I'm weak with deceit
My skin is paper thin

We get through this feeling it, keeping it, holding it in
We go through this, over and over again

I'd go years without tears in a life with no fear
A life without you
Now I'm breaking my back as I cover my tracks
Myskin is paper thin once again

We get through this feeling it, keeping it, holding it in
We go through this, over and over again

I've gone days without food
I've gone weeks without sleep
Keeping this in
I've got cuts I can't close
I've got wounds that wont heal
It's all your fault
My American dream
Wasn't ever to lie, steal and cheat
He wont leave her for this
What's the point?
I wish they would die

We get through tis felling it, keeping it, holding it in
We go through this, over and over again
We get through tis felling it, keeping it, holding it in
We go through this, over and over again

This was not a test, this was all for real
