Promised you the heart All wrong from the start Broken, shattered, dead Never should have said Fix it back again Mend what was broken Did it come out clean? Never should have seen And that's the last deal I'll ever make Won't give you anymore Got nothing else that you can take Never should have said Listened or trusted Never should have known Now everything is gone And that's the last deal I'll ever make Won't give you anymore Got nothing else that you can take

You only come around when I know you're not gonna come around You only like me when I know I don't like you You only tell the truth after I've untangled all your lies You only try when there's nothing you can do You only give it up after I've already given ground You only round when I don't want to fight with you You only take a chance after I've already seen defeat You only risk it when I know we're gonna lose As I fall apart I think back to the start There's no sense to any of this And there's less and less that I miss You only think it's funny when you know I don't want to play around You only have the time when there's no time for you You only say you're sorry when I've given up on apology You only give me hope when I give up on you As I fall apart I think back to the start There's no sense to any of this And there's less and less that I miss As I fall apart I think back to the start There's no sense to any of this And there's less and less that I miss

Maybe there's no one who knows why she kept me with her At least there's no one to say, a secret no one will betray And maybe there's no one who sees the girl who walks alone Maybe it's better, she'd say, if they ignore me anyway Maybe there's no one who knows just what happened to me At least no one's made a claim No one's coming just the same And maybe no one sees me dream the night alone Maybe I'll never escape, maybe I'll never get away Sometimes when she laughed at me, She'd rattle mother's baby teeth Just a reminder, she'd say, For why she bothered keeping me If I'm quiet, it's add though they can't even see me I seen to slip past everyone even in the bright of day And maybe that's why she thinks I keep the night alone Nothing can keep me from you, nothing will scare me away Sometimes when she laughed at me, She'd rattle mother's baby teeth Just a reminder, she'd say, For why she bothered keeping me

He can't remember when she tamed him Doesn't even know her name She's never even reached to touch him But he knows the girl's to blame And he knows she’ll never feel the same So he gets closer, just to scare her Just so he can see her fear Just so he can know it's nothing Just to know she wouldn't care But in her eyes, that's not what he sees there She talks to him like he's a person Just an ordinary man She wants someone to want to save her She wonders who might understand And just like that, he’s at her command

I am one captivated by the night I am one captivated by the night I take passing refuge, but in vain, to once again be tortured by the light Hidden from the interloper’s reign Hidden from the interloper’s reign I must make in shadows my retreat and await the moon-rise once again It could be out of loyalty or spite, but I am one captivated by the night Couldn't tell you if it's wrong or right, but I am one captivated by the night He rules from a tyrant’s golden seat He rules from a tyrant’s golden seat I would sling my arrows toward the sky If ever it could bring on his defeat But when the moon has risen proud and high Yes, when the moon has risen proud and high To claim her rightful throne above the night that bitter king won’t rule this diamond sky It could be out of loyalty or spite, but I am one captivated by the night Couldn't tell you if it's wrong or right, but I am one captivated by the night

She’s got a nice dog Her boyfriend’s okay, too She could turn this whole place Into a zoo And all it takes to fell her Is a single word from you She’s got holes in her face She’s covered with tattoos She is always preceded By her attitude And all it takes to fell her Is a single word from you And all it takes to fell her Is a single word from you

You taught me what it is to want And you taught me what it is to long And you taught me what it is to go without And you taught me what it is to walk away Well I’m back, babe, and I promise I will stay I know you think that it’s a bad idea And I know you think that this will never work And I know you don’t even want to take the chance And I know you think that there’s no reason to even try But there’s a reason, babe, and I’m gonna show you why Baby, turn around And I’ll keep you safe and sound Come on stay You can trust me Baby, turn around And I’ll keep you safe and sound Come on stay You can trust me You know I never meant to do you wrong And you know I never meant to do you harm And you know that I never wanted you to regret And you know that you’ve got every reason to blame But I’ve change, babe, this time I’m not the same Baby, turn around And I’ll keep you safe and sound Come on stay You can trust me Baby, turn around And I’ll keep you safe and sound Come on stay You can trust me

What was it he said The last time I saw him What was it he said Right before she took him away Why can't I recall What he used to tell me Why can't I recall All the things that he used to say Will I ever see you again Will I ever get to hear you say my name And how did he look The last time I saw him And how did he look Right before she took me away Why can't I recall What he used to look like Why can't I recall His face when he would look my way Will I ever see you again Will I ever get to hear you say my name Will I ever see you again Or will it never, will it never be the same And what do we do Now that we're in pieces So what do we do Now that we can never escape

Please don't cry little baby Please don't cry no more Please don't cry little one I'll fix you up better than before You know how hard I'm working And you know I'm almost through You know how hard I'm working And every bit of it's for you I'll give you the sweetest tongue that ever did sing I'll give you the sweetest heart that ever did beat I'll give you the sweetest eyes anyone has ever seen Just give me a little silence my darling Just give me a little silence my darling You know it's hard to work here Between all your cries You know it's hard to focus Singing silly lullabies When all you do is whimper All you do is complain I'm trying to do my best here While all you do is cry in pain I'll give you the sweetest tongue that ever did sing I'll give you the sweetest heart that ever did beat I'll give you the sweetest eyes anyone has ever seen Just give me a little silence my darling Just give me a little silence my darling

I walked along the moonlit trails In silence I'd remain I thought I was all by myself When I heard him howl my name I was scared, I couldn't run But I could understand The curse he suffered under That could change him from a man So he wasn't my hero So he was no prince But he was not the animal You made him to be And he was no villain But that makes no difference For in the end I was the one To bite the hand that feeds You said he couldn't know better You said he did no good You said if I were older, then I might have understood Always spitting venom Always fighting tooth and claw You said I'd be the death of you You always knew it all So he wasn't my hero So he was no prince But he was not the animal You made him to be And he was no villain But that makes no difference For in the end I was the one To bite the hand that feeds I knew he'd cause me heartache The moment this began No matter how I loved him, Couldn't save him in the end
