Now listen close

Now listen hard

'Cause such a tale

Deserves to be told

This is your life

This is your fight

So make the choice

Before you're too old

I lived in sin

I couldn't win

And now I'm stuck

At the bottom again

My heart, it aches

Feel my blood pound

I hit the ground

Because I had to

Teach myself how

Just not to break

Don't stay awake

When the pain takes over

Now listen close

Now listen hard

Don't lose your guard

Come closer

And I'll tell you a tale

I was in love

It was my drug

How could I

Let myself get addicted?

So I got high

The days flew by

And I found

Love had cheated me

It beat me down

I could just drown

But I picked myself up

This is my life

This is my fight

I made the choice

I'm gonna act

Like I'm bold

Now listen close

Now listen hard

'Cause such a tale

Deserves to be told

Don't fall in love

Don't lose your guard

I fell too hard

It crushed my heart

And I nearly broke
