In a place where there's only happiness and hope
I wouldn't see you there
You lost those long ago and you blame everyone but you.

In a town where people smile and give and forgive and they live
I wouldn't see you there
You forgot how to forgive, and you blame everyone but you

In a city where people say what they need
I wouldn't see you there
You never said anything to me until it was too late, and you blame me, not you

I held onto you for as long as I could while you told me to
Let go
When you were saying
Hold on
And I didn't know what to do
So I did what I thought was the right thing to do
I held on
Until you pushed me away till I couldn't hear what you were saying
And you said
Don't let me go
When you wanted me to
Let you go

I held on as long as I could
But then we broke
And the tears, they still sting
But I'll live

I'll live without you
I'll hold on to someone who will
Hold me too
The way you
Refused to do
I'll live without you
