Lyrics

Promise

Written By: Goodbye Houston

Every room in this house is empty
and every windows shut
and this is where you left me
the furthest from enough
and I can't break this habit of hangning on
with a paper heart
I just can't help it
(tell me there's something more)

One more chance to make this somehow
and prove my words to you
I know this can't be right now
but I'm still hooked on you
just read my eyes and look inside
to the world you helped destroy
I might not make it
(tell me there's something more)

Promise me you'll promise
to never let me go again
cause these rumors that we live for
we'll die from in the end
hold on
hold on
let's make this a promise to remember

All my veins are dry and empty
from letters sent to you
but I'm still awake and I'm still breathing
from everything you do
I won't drop this habit of hanging on
with nothing left inside
I might not make it

Promise me you'll promise
to never let me go again
cause these rumors that we live for
we'll die from in the end
hold on
hold on
let's make this a promise to remember

Promise me you'll promise
to never let me go again
cause these rumors that we live for
we'll die from in the end
hold on (hold on)
hold on (hold on)
let's make this a promise to remember

Never let me go

I'll never let this go

Starting Over

Written By: Goodbye Houston

verse:

I'll break into you heart
and take back everything that's mine
and you can keep what you took
cause you can't replace lost time

prechorus:

wake up
it's over (it's over)
it's time to start over (start Over)
c'mon, you know
everything's alright

chorus:

(Stay away)
So take it away
Take back the memories,
and all the things you would say
and you can keep your world
cause it's better without me

verse:

welcome home to heartbreak
and all the things I know to well
sometimes I feel I've lost the world
but I can barely tell

prechorus:

wake up
it's over (it's over)
it's time to start over again (start over)
c'mon, c'mon (c'mon)
you know everything's alright

chorus

bridge:

so take it away
take back the memories
and all the things you would say
and you can keep your world
cause it's better without me

stay away
but remember me
and I'll say
that I will be thinking of you

chorus
