I’d lie down and die if I thought that you’d let me
somehow I know it’s no longer my choice
I walk the floors with my bayonet ready
searching for somewhere to hide from your voice

our love is gone, not a strand of it lingers
but we’re both too old now to learn how to leave
I’ll watch you fall and I won’t lift a finger
please don’t pretend you’d do better by me

I’ll work till I break though I’m already broken
and I don’t have the strength to fight back on my own
these days the edge off of any word spoken
is more than enough to cut me to the bone

you always run at the first sign of trouble
and I hold my ground as if chained to the earth
all that we built up has worn down to rubble
now all this rubble is all that we’re worth
