You're breaking into pieces
Try not to feel it
You say that I crossed the line
For better or for worse
I meant every last word
Sometimes I just won't deny

I try to say it loud and clear
But it's not what you want to hear

That I may hurt you
And I may want to
I'm gonna make you cry
Yes, I will, yes I will
I'm barely breathing
But you just don't see it
I'd show you my tears and bye
If only I could cry

Was I too honest
Isn't that what you wanted?
Or did you just want me to lie?
'Cause staying in your last kiss
Was enough to make me miss
The ones that made everything right

I try to say it loud and clear
But it's not what you want to hear

That I may hurt you
And I may want to
I'm gonna make you cry
Yes, I will, yes I will
I'm barely breathing
But you just don't see it
I'd show you my tears and bye
If only I could cry

Who's to say who was wrong
Who's to blame, who was guilty all along
Did you meant what you said
Or were you trying to get away?
Will you stay, will you go?
Are you coming home?

Break into pieces
Try not to feel it

I may hurt you
And I may want to
I'm gonna make you cry
Yes, I will, yes I will
I'm barely breathing
But you just don't see it
I'd show you my tears and bye
If only I could cry
If only I could cry
If only I could cry
If only I could cry
