Verse 1

Love is not worth what comes after.

There's always a sunset after the laughter.

And it's too dark,

A jaded mark

In my heart where you used to be.

And I don't want to do this again to me.

Chorus

Well I'm a coward,

I've been overpowered

By my fear of getting hurt again.

Teardrops, sad songs, paper and pen.

Verse 2

Nights spent crying over spilt milk.

A knot in my mind with a rope made of silk.

These metaphors,

Just can't abhor

My lack of words to describe it,

This feeling of losing ground under my feet.

Chorus

Well I'm a coward,

I've been overpowered

By my fear of getting hurt again.

Breathe in, breathe out, and count to ten.

Bridge

But it doesn't go away.

The cigarette keeps burning even in the ashtray.

I hate you for your touch of salt.

I love you though it's all your fault,

This terrified state of my mind.

Just can't put my heart on the line...

Chorus

Well I'm a coward,

I've been overpowered

By my fear of getting hurt again.

Flashbacks, black outs, memory lane.

The love still lingers in my vein…
