You wake up… to bloodstains in your bedroom

On your sheets… and bruises underneath.

You go out… after bathing in concealer- and razors.

Lies you spill from your lips explain the pain.

Another month's gone and now she's got another man.

Another rat's teeth to drag you back down the alley.

Another rib shows, another day goes without going back down

Inside the rabbit hole. You're holding on, my dear.

And still I try to save you.

And still I try to hold your hand.

And still I try to touch you,

To get between the fist and your hand.

I'm trying my hardest

To reach out for her hand and

Tell her she deserves

Nothing less than the best from

Someone who loves her,

Otherwise known as me.

You wake up… to melancholy and numbness

In your veins… your body tries to sustain

Itself now… that you're trying to fade away.

He won't let you down if you don't come home at all.

Another years's gone and now you've got another plan.

Another way to go either with or without a bang.

Another bone shows, another hour goes without falling back down

Inside the rabbit hole. You're trying to hold on, my dear.

And still I try to take you

Away from what's in your hand.

And still I try to love you,

To get between what's starting and the end.

I'm trying my hardest

To reach out for her hand and

Tell her she deserves

Nothing less than the best from

Someone who loves her,

Otherwise known as me.

I'm trying my hardest

To reach out for her hand and

Tell her she deserves

Nothing less than the best from

Someone who loves her,

Otherwise known as me.

And still I try to save you. (Another month's gone and now she's got another man.)

And still I try to save you. (Another rat's teeth to drag you back down the alley.)

And still I try to save you. (Another bone shows, another hour goes without falling back down.)

And still I try to save you. (Inside the rabbit hole. You're trying to hold on, my dear.)

I'm trying my hardest

To reach out for her hand and

Tell her she deserves

Nothing less than the best from

Someone who loves her,

Otherwise known as me.

I'm trying my hardest

To reach out for her hand and

Tell her she deserves

Nothing less than the best from

Someone who loves her,

Otherwise known as me.

You'll wake up… to sunshine in your bedroom

On your sheets… and no one underneath.
