Left my heart where you broke it.
I like feeling the empty
space inside my soul.
Years of loving you scarred me.
If I could have had some vision.
Dreamed what wrapped around us,
would unravel to the floor.
I would have nestled us from it.
Counted another million reasons to stay.
Wonder what measures the degrees of hell?
I'm left burning,
almost persuaded to come home.
Foolish mind pays a tribute,
to everything we once was.
Have a chance to come
or end us for good, period.
Maybe we could be better a third time.
Three times a charm.
