As Bad As It Gets

Album: Sweet and Wild (2010)
  • I close my eyes
    So I can't see you leaving
    I still hear
    You walking out

    I can't move
    I feel like I'm not breathing
    How do I live without you now

    Is this as bad as it gets?
    Is this as hard as it seems?

    Is this the way it feels with a dagger through your heart
    When you're falling to your knees ripped and torn apart
    How long am I gonna cry feel like I'm gonna die
    Trying to forget
    Is this as bad as it gets?

    Sun's going down
    How will I ever face our empty bed?
    Turn out the lights
    It hurts too much
    To know you're never coming home again
    You said goodbye

    Is this as bad as it gets?
    Is this as hard as it seems?

    Is this the way it feels with a dagger through your heart
    When you're falling to your knees ripped and torn apart
    How long am I gonna cry feel like I'm gonna die
    Trying to forget
    Is this as bad as it gets?

    Tonight tell me I've
    Seen the worst of this jagged knife
    Deep inside my broken heart
    He'll only leave a scar

    Is this as bad as it gets?
    Is this as hard as it seems?

    Is this the way it feels with a dagger through your heart
    When you're falling to your knees ripped and torn apart
    How long am I gonna cry feel like I'm gonna die
    Trying to forget
    Is this as bad as it gets?

    I close my eyes
    So I can't see you leaving
