Lyrics

Breakdown alone

Written By: Damien Chappell

I’ll always love you, no one above you
We were so strong
Cold and lonely, baby you own me
I’m not at home

Insecurity and my childish maturity
Pushed your heart to bleed
Now I’m ready to stand and be a new man
But I’m not what you need

(Chorus)
I’m gripping tight to a shred of hope
I don’t want to let it show
That this is cutting me down to the bone
So I put on my smiling face
But this is just too much to take
All I want to do is go back home
And breakdown alone…..

Baby we’ll make, we won’t just fake it
Then you tell me we’re through
How many times have your twisted emotions
Beat me black and blue?

I’m far from fine, but you needed some time
And give you your space
It’s been way too long, now it all feels wrong
As you disassociate

(Chorus)
I’m gripping tight to a shred of hope
I don’t want to let it show
That this is cutting me down to the bone
So I put on my smiling face
But this is just too much to take
All I want to do is go back home
And breakdown alone…..

(Bridge)
You said you’ve become jaded
And your love for me has faded
There’s nothing else that I can do
We’re through---

(Chorus)
You stripped away my shred of hope
Now I can finally let it show
That this has cut right thru the bone
So I’m ripping off my smiling face
This is just too much to take
Now I can finally go to my new home
And breakdown alone…..

Fly Away

Written By: Damien Chappell

Here we go again
Yes this is the end
And you insist on telling me
How much I make you angry

I’ve heard it a thousand times
And I admit my crimes
It’s time to let it go
Stop trying to make me feel your pity

(Chorus)
I’m so sick of the waiting
Sick of complaining
Sick of you telling me it’s too late
I know that it’s over
Just give me some closure
Then you can finally fly away

I wasn’t there for you
Now I know the truth
I can see right thru you
No love left for me in your eyes

I’ve been cut off
And I’ve had enough
Let’s finish this and just
Try to get on with our lives

(Chorus)
I’m so sick of the waiting
Sick of complaining
Sick of you telling me it’s too late
I know that it’s over
Just give me some closure
Then you can finally fly away

Different Life

Written By: Damien Chappell

(Verse)
Crumbling in my hands
It slips thru my fingers
Watch it fall away
As my stare just lingers

Why do I need this?
Why do I care?
Expected to keep peace
So I don’t dare

This ain’t me
And I can’t see
Even a glimpse
Of what I used to be

(Chorus)
I feel like somebody else
Living a life, not mine
I’ve lost myself
This broken road I’m on
Leads me too far away,
I’m too far gone
Gotta get back, get out of this hell
There must be a way
But I can’t tell

(Verse)
I wear this mask
Of a different life
But I don’t know when
Can’t remember why

I’ve walked thru fire
To the gates of Hell
With nothing but shame
And my soul to sell

I’ve lost sight
Of my fight
I know my wrongs
But can’t make it right

(Chorus x2)
I feel like somebody else
Living a life, not mine
I’ve lost myself
This broken road I’m on
Leads me too far away,
I’m too far gone
Gotta get back, get out of this hell
There must be a way
But I can’t tell

Still Not Over This

Written By: Damien Chappell

I’m trying to move on
To start my new life
But it tore me apart
To see you tonight

All of my contempt
All of my anger
Came pouring out
To a complete stranger

Who is this new you
That I can not talk to?
There is no compassion
How could this happen?
Bring back my best friend
If only for pretend
Give me one last kiss
Cause I’m still not over this

Are you just trying
To protect my feelings?
Or am I too blind
To know what I am seeing?

You’ve changed the rules
And set new boundaries
To start a new life
Completely without me

These games that you’re playin’
Just mean what you’re saying
I’m losing control
Help me let go

Who is this new you
That I can not talk to?
There is no compassion
How could this happen?
Bring back my best friend
If only for pretend
Give me one last kiss
Cause I’m still not over this

These Walls

Written By: Damien Chappell

We stare at the ceiling and talk with no feeling
The empty air filled with meaningless words
Heavy thoughts fill our minds, but it’s never the right time
We both need to be heard

So along we go, playing the charade
Completely avoiding what needs to be said
With every brick the distance keeps building
And questions keep filling my head

I want to tear down these walls
Because I can’t recall
The person living behind them
I want you to trust me
Cause I need to see
The person living behind them
Tear down these walls

You love me; you miss me, but completely dismiss me
Your words and actions confused
Just like he told you, I just want to hold you
But I am never what you choose

It’s finally too much, when I feel your touch
Pouring out my bleeding heart to you
I look in your eyes and it’s no surprise
You say nothing and we grow further apart

I want to tear down these walls
Because I can’t recall
The person living behind them
I want you to trust me
Cause I need to see
The person living behind them
Tear down these walls

Now my fists are bleeding as I keep on beating
Hell bent, I can’t hear a sound
My teeth are grinding and my pain is blinding
But I am gaining no ground

I want to tear down these walls
Because I can’t recall
The person living behind them
I want you to trust me
Cause I need to see
The person living behind them
Tear down these walls
