  • I still remember that empty look left on your face
    You took the pictures but you left the frames
    All we had written, well, it's been erased
    Something that I had to do
    I cut you deep, you're bleeding through
    You're every single shade of blue
    I'm staring right in front of you

    I can hear your heartbeat slowing down
    I can hear your heartbeat turn me around
    You can take my life
    All you need, make me right
    I can't sleep with your heartbeat slowing down

    Here you left scattered
    Like wishes I led to your room
    Bury my face in your pillow
    Just to smell your perfume
    Outside I'm hungry
    But inside I'm just consumed
    Tell me how I'm supposed to breathe
    Losing you is choking me

    I can hear your heartbeat slowing down
    I can hear your heartbeat turn me around
    You can take my life
    All you need, make me right
    I can't sleep with your heartbeat slowing down

    I fucking hate this town
    I wanna burn it down
    I never felt so cold
    And when I burn this town
    I hope I burn it down
    And leave me on my own
    I fucking hate this town
    I wanna burn it down
    I never felt so cold

    I can hear your heartbeat slowing down

    I can hear your heartbeat slowing down
    I can hear your heartbeat turn me around
    You can take my life
    All you need, make me right
    How can you sleep with your heartbeat slowing down
    I can hear your heartbeat slowing down Writer/s: Nick Wheeler, Tyson Ritter
