Verse 1

There is nothing called love, it's all a lie

Sold by those movies and fairytales

Where people try to escape from reality

And thrive from fantasy's thin veil.

Chorus

I won't chase the shadow of something that doesn't exist.

I know wounds don't heal, and a heart can never be fixed.

I don't need someone to hold my hand, I don't need any help.

Cause you can only be happy if you can find it within yourself.

And at the end of the day, all the matters is the smile on your face.

I can only have it when I don't have to deal with love induced stress.

So I've made the decision of not chasing the shadow of something that doesn't exist.

Because I know wounds don't heal, and a heart can never be fixed.

Verse 2

There is no happily ever after, no forever,

No soul-mates, no twin flames.

In reality there's only screams and yelling

And calling each other nasty names.

Chorus

I won't chase the shadow of something that doesn't exist.

I know wounds don't heal, and a heart can never be fixed.

I don't need someone to hold my hand, I don't need any help.

Cause you can only be happy if you can find it within yourself.

And at the end of the day, all the matters is the smile on your face.

I can only have it when I don't have to deal with love induced stress.

So I've made the decision of not chasing the shadow of something that doesn't exist.

Because I know wounds don't heal, and a heart can never be fixed.

Bridge

Nobody's found it, no matter what they claim.

They can act like they're happy, but it's all the same.

Or that's how I choose to look at it.

Because I'm not ready to surrender and submit.

I'm not ready to admit I've lost all hopes cause I've had enough.

I'm not ready to say I searched and never found it and gave up.

Chorus

I won't chase the shadow of something that doesn't exist.

I know wounds don't heal, and a heart can never be fixed.

I don't need someone to hold my hand, I don't need any help.

Cause you can only be happy if you can find it within yourself.

And at the end of the day, all the matters is the smile on your face.

I can only have it when I don't have to deal with love induced stress.

So I've made the decision of not chasing the shadow of something that doesn't exist.

Because I know wounds don't heal, and a heart can never be fixed.
