The moment I start something I know

Sooner or later somehow I'll have to let go.

I always lose everything that I try to cling on,

I get shattered by all the changes life brings on.

But everything that begins has to end.

I need to accept it and let my heart mend.

So this time I'm cutting the chord

Of my own accord.


If I say it doesn't hurt I'd be lying.

I'll admit I feel like a part of me is dying.

But I'm familiar with goodbyes,

I'm used to blinking back tears in my eyes.

The trick is looking forward, instead of looking back.

Don't think about the past; just let it fade to black...

So this time I'm cutting the chord

Of my own accord.


The memories are so close to my heart,

I'm remembering every detail as I part.

But I can't stop, can't back down now.

I need to get to that future I want, fulfill my vow.

I need to reach my dreams, and snatch it from fate.

It hurts, but I've gotta do it now, it can't wait.

So this time I'm cutting the chord

Of my own accord.
