I used to make the light shine for you
The sun has left my sky
Velvet walls surround my sorrows
I've sacrificed my pride

Giving up on me (giving up on me)
You're giving up on me (giving up on me)
Giving up on me (giving up on me)
You're giving up on me


I've laid myself to sleep tonight
I know you've played out everything in your mind
And now you throw it all away
A shattered memory that you would stay through thick and thin with me


You're giving up on
Giving up on me (giving up on me)
You're giving up on me (giving up on me)
Giving up on me (giving up on me)
You're giving up on me

I've laid myself to sleep tonight
I know you've played out everything in your mind but I...
And now you throw it all away
A shattered memory that you would stay through thick and thin with me

And when you feel the pain
I'm wishing I could stay
How can I say I love you back?
You never made me happy

You've laid yourself to sleep
I never said this wouldn't hurt
You gave up everything
I never said I'd give it back

I know you'll never change
I won't be good enough for you
I know you'll make it through
I'll never be around to see

And now you throw it all away
A shattered memory that you would stay through thick and thin with me

You're giving up on me
You're giving up on me
You're giving up on me
You're giving up on me
