Lost In The Echo

Album: Living Things (2012)
Charted: 95
  • Oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh

    And these promises broken deep below
    Each word gets lost in the echo
    So one last lie I can see through
    This time I finally let you
    Go, go, go

    I finally let you go
    I finally let you

    Test my will, test my heart
    Let me tell you how the odds gonna stack up
    Y'all go hard, I go smart
    How's it working out for y'all in the back, huh?
    I've seen that frustration
    Been crossed and lost and told no
    And I've come back unshaken
    Let down and lived and let go
    So you can let it be known
    I don't hold back, I hold my own
    I can't be mapped, I can't be cloned
    I can't c-flat, it ain't my tone
    I can't fall back, I came too far
    Hold myself up and love my scars
    Let the bells ring wherever they are
    'Cause I was there saying

    In these promises broken deep below
    Each word gets lost in the echo
    So one last lie I can see through
    This time I finally let you
    Go, go, go

    Go
    Oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh

    This time I, this time I
    This time I
    This time I finally let you go

    This time I finally let you
    (Go)

    (Promises, promises, promises, promises, promises, promises, promises, promises, promises,promises)
    (Promises, promises)
    And these promises broken deep below
    Each word gets lost in the echo
    So one last lie I can see through
    This time I finally let you go
    Go, go, go Writer/s: BRAD DELSON, CHESTER CHARLES BENNINGTON, DAVE FARRELL, JOSEPH HAHN, MIKE SHINODA, ROBERT G. BOURDON
