Breaking Me Down

  • You used to be so fearless
    You used to be so strong
    What ever happened to the one that could do no wrong?
    How did you get so careless?
    How did you get so numb?
    Are you the only liar, running from

    I wish that I could hate you
    I wish that I could start by cutting you out
    'Cause when I look in your eye
    I know I'm watching you drown
    I wish that I could save you
    I wish that I could start by cutting you out
    'Cause when I look in your eyes
    I know deep inside they're holding you up
    Holding you up is breaking me down

    You don't gotta be perfect
    You're not too far gone
    But if you can't help yourself
    Then you won't move on
    The world's not out of focus
    It's just what you've become
    Don't you see you're the liar, running from

    I wish that I could hate you
    I wish that I could start by cutting you out
    'Cause when I look in your eye
    I know I'm watching you drown
    I wish that I could save you
    I wish that I could start by cutting you out
    'Cause when I look in your eyes
    I know deep inside they're holding you up
    Holding you up is breaking me down

    I wish that I could hate you
    I wish that I could start by cutting you out
    'Cause when I look in your eye
    I know I'm watching you drown
    I wish that I could save you
    I wish that I could start by cutting you out
    'Cause when I look in your eyes
    I know deep inside they're holding you up
    Holding you up is breaking me down Writer/s: ANTHONY AARON ESPERANCE, CRAIG EDWARD MABBITT, HOWARD M BENSON, JACOBY SHADDIX, KEVIN CHURKO, KEVIN HOWARD GRUFT, ROBERT ORTIZ, THOMAS BELL, TOBIN ESPERANCE
