Rachel Platten – Beating Me Up lyrics

We threw words like they were sharp knives
Fell, like we tripped over a landmine
You said we lost love, you made your mind up
And I just got quiet, my body went numb

And I pretend that I can handle it
And if I hold my head up, I won't drown
I can't let go, you're like a chemical
You're racing through me,
My heart just pounds, pounds, pounds

It's getting louder and louder
Everytime I think about you, about you
I'll be better off without you, without you
I wish my heart would stop
I wish my heart would stop beating me up

Beating me up
Beating me up

You've moved on, I know I should too
My cuts are all gone, my pain feels brand new
Who turned the lights down? Who took my flashlight?
Why does my heart sound like it might burst tonight?

It's getting louder and louder
Everytime I think about you, about you
I'll be better off without you, without you
I wish my heart would stop
I wish my heart would stop beating me up

Beating me up
Beating me up
I wish my heart would stop
Wish my heart would stop

I won't let you get the best of me
How'd my heart become my enemy?
I won't let you get the best of me
How'd my heart become my enemy?

It's getting louder and louder
Everytime I think about you, about you
And I'll be better off without you, without you
I wish my heart would stop
I wish my heart would stop beating me up

Beating me up
Oh, beating me up
Wish my heart would
Wish my heart would stop beating me up

Beating me up
