Firewater
Yellowcard

You sat me down beside myself
To show me all the reasons I was wrong for you
Was this for real, it's hard to tell
'Cause it was such a beautiful mess we had got into

I'm gonna overcome this
Paper hearts can't win this time
And all along I should have know this
It wasn't your dream, it was mine
I know you wanted me to give up this life to be
Everything I was back when you had the hands my heart was in
I was never good at goodbye

Can I swallow this bottle whole
So this brain in my head can forget your face

When we were starting out
You believed in me without a doubt
You were the finest thing that happened to a boy like me
It's so much harder now
I want to try and tell you how
There is so much love in me
Even though it's hard to see
And I was never good at goodbye

Can I swallow this bottle whole
So this brain in my head can forget your face
Can I swallow this bottle whole
'Cause I'd rather be dead than make more mistakes

Today I couldn't stay awake
Feels like I'm drowning in this firewater lake
I won't be sleeping much tonight
It's not the same without you lying by my side
Right beside me

Can I swallow this bottle whole
So this brain in my head can forget your face
Can I swallow this bottle whole
'Cause I'd rather be dead than make more mistakes

I know you wanted me
To give up my heart to be everything I am
And you're the only thing that I can see
I'm sorry, but you're not the only one for me

You left me here beside myself
Left me with all the reasons I was wrong for you
