lyrics

I think I hate you
And I want him dead
But I think I’ll take all this hurt
And I’ll just rhyme these words instead

Now I’m forced to sleep here
In a bed that you made
Oh, and these sheets are colder now
Than anything that I have to say

I hope the guilt will weigh you down when you hear my songs
I hope the truth between these line makes you sing along
You won’t find damnation in my thousand-mile stare
Because in end your conscience will be your own cross to bear

They say love’s relentless
Oh, but my heart ain’t
So I think I’ll cover the cracks in these walls
With a red coat of paint

Cuz half of me needs you
And half of me don’t
Darlin’, and that half of me ain’t afraid that I’ll end up alone

I hope the guilt will weigh you down when you hear my songs
I hope the truth between these line makes you sing along
You won’t find salvation in my thousand-mile stare
Because in end your conscience will be your own cross to bear
Oh baby, yeah in the end
Your conscience will be your own cross to bear
