Verse 1

The more I care, the more I hurt and ache.

And everything is just too much to take.

One more blow, and I might just break.

Let it go, oh, for Heaven's sake!

Chorus

I wish to stand all alone today.

Don't hold me back, I'll push you away.

Cut the strings holding my heart together.

Let me bleed so that I can get better.

Save the kind words that you have to say.

Don't hold me back, I'll push you away.

Verse 2

Life's given me no reason to believe.

The warmth in my soul can't hold me captive.

Everyone eventually leaves.

And you're just not worth all that grieve.

Chorus

I wish to stand all alone today.

Don't hold me back, I'll push you away.

Cut the strings holding my heart together.

Let me bleed so that I can get better.

Save the kind words that you have to say.

Don't hold me back, I'll push you away.

Bridge

I won't let you have so much power over me anymore.

It's just a matter of time till you let me down,

And the room reverbs with the sound of my tears touching the floor,

And all that sweet sorrow finally makes me drown.

Oh, no, I'm not doing that,

Not this time around.

Chorus

I wish to stand all alone today.

Don't hold me back, I'll push you away.

Cut the strings holding my heart together.

Let me bleed so that I can get better.

Save the kind words that you have to say.

Don't hold me back, I'll push you away.

Don't hold me back, I'll push you away.

Don't hold me back,

I'll push you away.
