Leave My Heart Behind

It's about how relationships can change for the worst over time, about how familiarity can really breed contempt

I could hold on to our now bitter memories

Our tears could wash away the sins of many

The scars on our arms bear testimony 

The pain endures, beyond unbearable

 

It starts, it creeps into your heart

It rises, it bends and will tear us apart

 

Hold on now babe

Though these years turn love to cruelty

Hold on now babe

All of these years have damaged me

 

Where could we go except away

If only I could've been more brave 

If only I could do as they say, because

To be heartless today is to survive

 

It starts, another era to grin and bear

It destroys, another reason not to care

 

Hold on now babe

Though these years turn love to cruelty

Hold on now babe

All of these years have damaged

 

 

 

The End
