You were a pain girl, a thorn in my side Drove me insane girl, a white-knuckle ride
So why do I go lookin' through old photographs And chase you down the hallways of our checkered past
Hold on for dear life and keep the fire fed
I oughta let go but instead 
It's like I'm pressing on a bruise To see if it still hurts Right now that's all I've got left of you Everybody knows that just makes it worse But still I do

I could start a new life, I could move on
I could do a drive by, and see if you're home
Now there's a fine, fine line between a memory And something any shrink would call an injury But it's not over long as you're still hurtin' me
And as I turn onto your street 
It's like I'm pressing on a bruise To see if it still hurts Right now that's all I've got left of you Anybody knows that just makes it worse But still I do
 Still I do, still I do, still love you

But she's the kind of girl puts your world on hold
Walk the halls and you check your phone Gave up the ghost and the ghost keeps holdin' on
And you run from the sun but you curse the rain
Lost the love so you nurse the pain
Goin' on and on, singin' that same song

But she's gone
(I can't let it alone)
And you get drunk on those glory days
(I can't just let it heal)
With a broken heart and a bitter taste
(No, I can't just let it go)
Well, you light it up as she burns you down
(I can't just let it heal)
You're smokin' those memories to the ground (Like I'm pressing on a bruise)
Yeah, that's the thing about love and pain
They may look alike but they're not the same
(No, I can't just let it go)
You've got to let it go go go
(No, I can't just let it heal)
