Verse 1

Where's that guy who once made me laugh

When I was breaking down over the phone?

How do I believe it was love

When you could just turn as cold as a stone?

Pre-chorus

I'll take the responsibility, the blame.

I'll take the tears every time I hear your name.

I'll take the pain, I know it won't be the same.

I'll take the soaring emptiness in my chest.

I'll take the cruel silence if it's for your best.

I'll take the sudden end, but you take the rest.

Chorus

Take your fake promises

Of "I'll never leave you" and

Take your touches, kisses,

How you used to hold my hand.

Take your loving smiles and stares,

And all the times when you were there,

You took away everything I had,

Now take this song, my heartless lad.

Verse 2

You look human, but you're not one.

Cause you don't have the least bit of mercy.

One mistake and you say you're done.

You made me wish you had never met me.

Pre-chorus

I'll take the responsibility, the blame.

I'll take the tears every time I hear your name.

I'll take the pain, I know it won't be the same.

I'll take the soaring emptiness in my chest.

I'll take the cruel silence if it's for your best.

I'll take the sudden end, but you take the rest.

Chorus

Take your fake promises

Of "I'll never leave you" and

Take your touches, kisses,

How you used to hold my hand.

Take your loving smiles and stares,

And all the times when you were there,

You took away everything I had,

Now take this song, my heartless lad.

Bridge

My heartless lad, my villain in disguise,

I kissed you with open eyes.

Because I always knew you'd fade away.

That's why I can take the pain today.

Chorus

Now take your fake promises

Of "I'll never leave you" and

Take your touches, kisses,

How you used to hold my hand.

Take your loving smiles and stares,

And all the times when you were there,

You took away everything I had,

Now take this song, my heartless lad.
