  • I started a war and I landed on my own sword
    Wish I could take those stupid things I said
    How could I be so foolish
    I called out to God but the devil keeps answering
    I'm trying every little remedy I can
    But this is all just bullshit

    When everybody says, time will clean up this mess
    But only you, only you
    Only you can make it better put me back together
    Come on baby let's be real
    Only you, only you
    Only you could stop the bleeding, give me what I'm needing
    Tell me so my heart can heal, only you

    I'm dressing my wounds but blood it keeps soaking through
    Yeah I cut just a little bit too deep
    And I feel so dizzy
    I pick up my phone and throw it against the wall
    And I cry like a baby in my sleep
    Without you, with me

    When everybody says, time will clean up this mess
    But only you, only you
    Only you can make it better
    Put me back together
    Come on baby let's be real
    Only you, only you
    Only you could stop the bleeding, give me what I'm needing
    Tell me so my heart can heal

    Only you can make me smile in the pouring rain
    And you can take the hurt right out of my pain
    I know I can try to fill the space inside
    With somebody else but there's no use

    But only you, only you
    Only you can make me better
    Put me back together
    Come on baby let's be real
    Only you, only you
    Only you could stop the bleeding, give me what I'm needing
    Tell me so my heart can heal
    Only you Writer/s: HOLLY BROOK HAFERMANN, MATTHEW PRIME, THOMAS CALLAWAY
