lyrics

There is only so much tension that I can take,

Before my misplaced guilt expires I'll begin to break.

What's left to say, go on and prove me wrong,

Your guard was up and I kept quiet for far too long.

And I tried to think with my head and not my heart,

When I prolonged this problem and kept it in the dark.

Bring this to light, the writings on the wall,

You can't jump this fence, not this time,

I won't be here to break your fall.

I'm sick and tired of helping those who cannot help themselves,

The seasons change and your friendships will fade.

You can't promise what you cannot keep,

And I won't be here to break your fall.

I’ll bite my tongue till it bleeds,

The taste reminds me of bittersweet memories and misery.

Pieced you together like a broken plate,

I tried to keep you falling from the same mistakes,

Besides, you can see the signs of wear and tear,

Lost all control beyond repair,

Open your eyes become more aware,

Breathe it all in.

I'm sick and tired of helping those who cannot help themselves,

The seasons change and your friendships will fade.

You can't promise what you cannot keep,

And I won't be here to break your fall.

I hope that you take note and realise where we went wrong,

I've said my piece, now spare me all the grief,

You can't promise what you cannot keep,

And I won't be here to break your fall.
