Another Chance To Leave

I have scars
from where I forced you to hold me
I've gone so far
from everything that I know
I've tried so hard
to ignore all the things that you told me
that I should just let myself go

I have pain
deeper down than you could ever go
the disdain
is burning in my chest
there'd be no gain
from telling you how much I know
but I understand
it's all for the best

don't hold on
life is better now that you're gone
but it's just so hard to believe
don't hold on
I've always known that you were wrong
I'm not going to give you
another chance to leave

I have tried
to make up for the words that just came out
I didn't mean to be that way
I have cried
I don't really know what this is all about
what is the meaning of this day?

don't hold on
life is better now that you're gone
but it's just so hard to believe
don't hold on
I've always known that you were wrong
I'm not going to give you
another chance to leave

you are bringing me down
and I just can't take it
you turned my skies grey, full of thunder
you are killing me
I don't think I can make it
I am going under

don't hold on
life is better now that you're gone
but it's just so hard to believe
don't hold on
I've always known that you were wrong
I'm not going to give you
another chance to leave

you don't deserve
another chance to leave

    Oh... wow.
    Beautiful. And I can relate. I love him, but he hurt me so bad... why would I give him another chance to leave? You're right. He doesn't deserve it. How I wish that made it easier...
