The blood is rushing to my head
This room is spinning round the bed
A flashing image perforates
Tarnishes memories of grace
A bursting fiery fortune to misshape

And if my body makes it out
Unscathed and safe from broken vows
A promise spoken leaves me holding on
I just can't get ahold of
Why we always hurt the ones we love
Can burning hearts still keep us strong?

A crack has formed in the foundation
The floor is falling out from under me
A pleading loser makes his case
A liar shakes his hand and breaks
A life of honor turns into his shame

And if my body makes it out
Unscathed and safe from broken vows
A promise spoken leaves me holding on
I just can't get ahold of
Why we always hurt the ones we love
Can burning hearts still keep us strong?

It's all my fault (It's all my fault)
This eagle's flying down below where shadows fall
Now it's sinking in (Now it's sinking in)
That I'm sinking into this place I never thought I'd view

You can't trust me, I'm not worthy
You won't ever feel this way

The storm is moving overhead
The wind is blowing back, we've been disliked

And if my body makes it out
Unscathed and safe from broken vows
A promise spoken leaves me holding on
I just can't get ahold of
Why we always hurt the ones we love
Can burning hearts still keep us strong?
