  • All the lies you told are now the truth
    Here I am with nothing left to lose
    Now that I’m crawling in my skin
    Maybe it’s time I just give in
    I’ve become the leader of the broken hearts

    And now I finally know what it feels like
    To risk everything and still survive
    When you’re standing on the battlefield
    And all the pain is real
    That’s when you realize
    That you must’ve done something right
    'Cause you’ve never felt so alive

    Holding out for more than I deserve
    And hanging on to all your careless words
    Maybe it’s time I cut the cord
    Maybe I stay and take some more
    I’ve become the leader of the broken hearts

    And now I finally know what it feels like
    To risk everything and still survive
    When you’re standing on the battlefield
    And all the pain is real

    And now I finally know what it feels like
    To risk everything and still survive
    When you’re standing on the battlefield
    And all the pain is real
    That’s when you realize
    That you must’ve done something right
    'Cause you’ve never felt so alive

    I’m the leader of the broken hearts
    I’m the leader of the broken hearts
    I’m the leader of the broken hearts
    I’m the leader of the broken hearts
    I’m the leader of the broken hearts
    I’m the leader of the broken hearts

    And now I finally know what it feels like
    To risk everything and still survive
    When you’re standing on the battlefield
    And all the pain is real
    That’s when you realize

    And now you finally know what it feels like
    To risk everything and still survive
    When you’re standing on the battlefield
    And all the pain is real
    That’s when you realize
    That you must’ve done something right
    'Cause you’ve never felt so alive Writer/s: JACOBY DAKOTA SHADDIX, JAMES MICHAEL, JERRY ALLAN JR. HORTON, TOBIN JOSEPH ESPERANCE
