Lyrics

I can read the lines
On your face
And they're telling me
Everything I already know
Yeah
I hold you in my arms
But your light-years away from me
Slowly sinking
Under alone
Yeah
So I act cool
On the outside
But it's eating me
Alive

'Cause when it comes to you
There's nothing I can do
I can't make you love me
When you don't
I see it in your eyes
All the compromise
I can't take another
Slow goodbye

Sitting in the park
After dark
Smoking cigarettes
Biting on the black of my nails
'Cause all I ever wanted
Was what you took away from me
Trying to make it right
But it's too late
I'm a hopeless case
On the inside
And it's eating me
Alive

'Cause when it comes to you
There's nothing I can do
I can't make you love me
When you don't
I see it in your eyes
All the compromise
I can't take another
Slow goodbye

I die
A million times
Every time when you
Look me in the eye
Die
'Cause I've heard it all before
The same game
Going around and around
But I still end up with nothing
But hurting

'Cause when it comes to you
There's nothing I can do
I can't make you love me
When you don't
I see it in your eyes
All the compromise
I can't take another
Slow goodbye
Yeah
There's nothing I can do
I can't make you love me
When you don't
I see it in your eyes
All the compromise
I can't take another
Slow goodbye
