  • Cold as ice
    And more bitter than a December
    Winter night
    That's how I treated you
    And I know that I
    I sometimes tend to loose my temper
    And I cross the line
    Yeah that's the truth

    I know it gets hard sometimes
    But I could never
    Leave your side
    No matter what I say
    'Cause if I wanted to go
    I would've gone by now but
    I really need you near me
    To keep my mind off the edge
    If I wanted to leave
    I would've left by now
    But you're the only one that knows me
    Better than I know myself

    All along
    I tried to pretend it didn't matter
    If I was alone
    Deep down I know
    If you were gone
    For even a day I wouldn't know which way to turn
    'Cause I'm lost without you

    I know it gets hard sometimes
    But I could never
    Leave your side
    No matter what I say

    'Cause if I wanted to go
    I would've gone by now
    But I really need you near me
    To keep my mind off the edge
    If I wanted to leave
    I would've left by now
    But you're the only one that knows me
    Better than I know myself

    I get kind of dark
    Let it go to far
    I can be obnoxious at times
    But try and see my heart
    'Cause I need you now
    So don't let me down
    You are the only thing in this world
    I would die without

    'Cause if I wanted to go
    I would've gone by now but
    I really need you near me
    To keep my mind off the edge
    If I wanted to leave
    I would've left by now
    But you're the only one that knows me
    Better than I know myself

    'Cause if I wanted to go
    I would've gone by now but
    I really need you near me
    To keep my mind off the edge
    If I wanted to leave
    I would've left by now
    But you're the only one that knows me
