i took on all your pain/oh, what a great mistake i made
i never thought you’d leave me with all your burdens overneath me
‘i miss you’ would be understated/memories have slowly faded
that love you sacrificed was just another way to die

if heaven is a place you’ll go, i don’t know if i will ever see you
and if you leave before you know, i’ll let go of all we’ve ever been through
i’m finding out the ways to live, in spite of all the wars you left inside my mind
love is just a way to die

we both have scars to show off all the nights we carved alone
if you’d come back, believe me, i’d show you pain is not self-healing
do you think of me at breakfast? when your hungry nights are sexless?
one day you’ll come to find i found another way to die

if heaven is a place you’ll go, i don’t know if i will ever see you
and if you leave before you know, i’ll let go of all we’ve ever been through
i’m finding out the ways to live, in spite of all the wars you left inside my mind
love is just a way to die

make me forget my name and get drunk on your words and laugh
save me regret and blame and let love rectify the past
i’ll settle for a life that’s a little more gentle/if you’d come back, we could last

if heaven is a place you’ll go, i don’t know if i will ever see you
and if you leave before you know, i’ll let go of all we’ve ever been through
i’m finding out the ways to live, in spite of all the wars you left inside my mind

love is just a way to die

i want to feel make believe
i want to be the air you breathe
fill up your lungs with necessity
i want to feel make believe

you left your scars on my skin
you carved your name deep within
you fucked me up, let that sink in
you fucked me up, let that sink in

and you might think i’m breathing
by the sight of my chest heaving
and the scars won’t peel over
shooting stars and four leaf clovers
don’t grant their wishes to bitches who live on excuses
a liar always loses

i found a home in your head
i slept with your demons in my bed
i should have run but instead
i found a home in things you never said

stop losing sleep over those
who will not keep your secrets close
you’re counting sheep while they doze off
under sheets of someone else’s clothes

and you might think i’m breathing
by the sight of my chest heaving
and the scars won’t peel over
shooting stars and four leaf clovers
and you might think i’m breathing
by the sight of my chest heaving
and the scars won’t peel over
shooting stars and four leaf clovers
remember that

i loved you when no one did
i loved you when you were sick
i loved you when we were just kids
how do you live under my skin?

i loved you when no one did
i loved you when you were sick
i loved you when we were just kids
how do you live?

and you might think i’m breathing
by the sight of my chest heaving
and the scars won’t peel over
shooting stars and four leaf clovers
and you might think i’m breathing
by the sight of my chest heaving
and the scars won’t peel over
shooting stars and four leaf clovers
don’t grant their wishes to bitches who live on excuses
a liar always loses

have you ever thought your thoughts
couldn’t sort out what is what?
your skin is hard to live in

do you live on memory lane
in the basement of a house of pain
you will find peace right beside me

intrusive thoughts can make us feel lost
what might you find inside my lost mind?

i may be stressed/or maybe i am depressed
but i know i’m moving on to the life you kept me from
i may be numb/or maybe i am just dumb
but the cardiac arrest hasn’t claimed my life just yet
i’m running out of breath

my heart beats so fast and loud
it could power an entire town
i will melt down/drink ’til i drown

maybe i said ‘no’ to drugs
it turns out they don’t listen much
i will fight it/ clean’s the right fit

the ghosts within pay rent on your skin
you’re on your own, but you’re not alone

i may be stressed/or maybe i am depressed
but i know i’m moving on to the life you kept me from
i may be numb/or maybe i am just dumb
but the cardiac arrest hasn’t claimed my life just yet
i’m running out of breath

this one’s for all of the pill-popping kids housing guns between their lips
stop hiding your wrists
this one goes out to the mind-numbing youth/the ones who swear pain leads to truth
don’t dive from your roofs
believe i see you

i may be stressed/or maybe i am depressed
but i know i’m moving on to the life you kept me from
i may be numb/or maybe i am just dumb
but the cardiac arrest hasn’t claimed my life just yet
i may be stressed/or maybe i am depressed
but i know i’m moving on to the life you kept me from
i may be numb/or maybe i am just dumb
but the cardiac arrest hasn’t claimed my life just yet
i’m running out of breath
