As hard as we try, we never succeed
We're just like the tide, we do what we need
As hard as the rain, as soft as the snow
With nowhere to go

When you're hurt you bleed
Scratches on your knees
Kisses on your cheeks

As long as your heart beats
You know it doesn't have to beat for me

How does it feel to be left behind
To be walked over again
I found the good in hurting others
And I never wanted to feel it again

So I hope you had fun
Cos I'm not waiting around for you

You have taught me not to love for free
Cos no one wanted me
As harsh as it seems
It makes sense to be invisible
