Powerless

Album: Living Things (2012)
  • You hid your skeletons when I had shown you mine
    You woke the devil that I thought you'd left behind
    I saw the evidence, the crimson soaking through
    Ten thousand promises, ten thousand ways to lose

    And you held it all but you were careless to let it fall
    You held it all and I was by your side, powerless

    I watched you fall apart and chased you to the end
    I'm left with emptiness that words can not defend
    You'll never know what I became because of you
    Ten thousand promises, ten thousand ways to lose

    And you held it all but you were careless to let it fall
    You held it all and I was by your side, powerless

    And you held it all but you were careless to let it fall
    You held it all and I was by your side, powerless

    Powerless
