Lyrics: As I pick up my heart from the floor Torn out and broken, can’t take any more So won’t you stop beating it now? I am done with you, you are done with me Don’t you trust words because words can tell lies What may seem as a blessing’s a curse in disguise Heart shaped box, a casket for two Remains half-empty with a promise so untrue So here I stand With empty hands and a heavy heart Beating to the tempo of your threnodies But God forbid I see your face again You know that things will never be the same But maybe I was never meant to love So I’m letting go So why won’t you fire away Somehow I knew that you could never stay Yet I’d like to believe that I was truly yours But now I don’t know anymore But God forbid I see your face again You know that things will never be the same But maybe I was never meant to love So I’m letting go I’ve lit myself on fire just to keep you warm I provided you with shelter from every violent storm You say you’re feeling empty, and we are not the same So after all of these years was it nothing but a game? I’m feeling so alive now that I am truly free I thought you were pouring water but you’re pouring gasoline So throw me to the wolves Set my heart aflame But God forbid I see your face again
