    "My heart's on my sleeve, but it's turning black (I guess I know what it feels like it to be alone)
    Without your touch I'm not gonna last (I know you know that I need you just to carry on)
    It feels like my walls are caving in (You'd always hold me before I left you hanging on)
    And I'll do anything to have you here again."

  • Alex Kulak from Mesa, AzThat would explain why it sounds so much like a rock song, honestly the original sounds more country than FGL's version.
