Verse 1

You picked up the broken fragments of my soul,

Your fingers bled from my sharp edges, but you didn't mind.

You built me up again; you made me feel whole,

You made me find my light when I was so completely blind.

Verse 2

And then I became an absolutely different person.

I tried hard to stay on the ground, but my wings took me away.

I feel terrible, I let you down, I'm guilty of treason,

You were there when I was alone, I should be with you today.

Pre-chorus

And I promise I've tried.

And when it didn't work, I've cried.

I knew we were falling apart, but I've lied,

To you, to myself,

Begged and pleaded for help.

But sometimes it doesn't work out.

I don't like it either,

But too many heart-aches and fights can wither

Even relationships like ours, so strong and stout.

But that doesn't change some things.

That doesn't change those good old feelings.

That doesn't change how

Chorus

You held my hands through the darkest night.

I made it because you promised it'd be alright.

You gave me all the strength I needed to fight.

And for that, you'll always have a special place

Right here in my heart,

Even if years pass and you can't recall my face,

Even if we're apart.

Verse 3

My morals are laced with things you taught me-

Kindness, selflessness, bravery, I end up even quoting you sometimes.

And I feel that's exactly how we were meant to be.

We weren't meant to be forever and ever, for wedding bell chimes.

Verse 4

You run much deeper, our bond is much stronger.

I can close my eyes and feel you by my side any time any day.

This separation is blissful, I never feel that you're far.

I'll always carry a part of you with me, you'll never be away.

Pre-chorus

And I promise I've tried.

And when it didn't work, I've cried.

I knew we were falling apart, but I've lied,

To you, to myself,

Begged and pleaded for help.

But sometimes it doesn't work out.

I don't like it either,

But too many heart-aches and fights can wither

Even relationships like ours, so strong and stout.

But that doesn't change some things.

That doesn't change those good old feelings.

That doesn't change how

Chorus

You held my hands through the darkest night.

I made it because you promised it'd be alright.

You gave me all the strength I needed to fight.

And for that, you'll always have a special place

Right here in my heart,

Even if years pass and you can't recall my face,

Even if we're apart.

Bridge

So here's an ode to the past,

I hope you'll forgive me someday,

I'm so sorry we didn't last,

But you're not going anywhere,

Cause every time I blast

My favorite songs, I think of you,

In your dorky shirts of red and blue.

If it wasn't for you, what would I do?

Chorus

You held my hands through the darkest night.

I made it because you promised it'd be alright.

You gave me all the strength I needed to fight.

And for that, you'll always have a special place

Right here in my heart,

Even if years pass and you can't recall my face,

Even if we're apart.
