Verse 1

How will I account for all the lost time?

Every stain can't be washed away with lime.

The ones that remain are scarlet letters.

So don't dare tell me it'll all get better.

Pre-chorus

Cause it won't, it won't, it won't.

So please don't, please don't, please don't

Chorus

Get my hopes up,

Only to bring me down.

Out of self-love,

I'm in self-loathing town.

I've had enough,

Let the pain burn me now,

Get my hopes up,

Only to bring me down.

Verse 2

How will I account for all the lost hope?

Every heart break makes it harder to cope.

The ones I've faced have shaken my core.

So don't dare tell me it'll strengthen me more.

Pre-chorus

Cause it won't, it won't, it won't.

So please don't, please don't, please don't

Chorus

Get my hopes up,

Only to bring me down.

Out of self-love,

I'm in self-loathing town.

I've had enough,

Let the pain burn me now,

Get my hopes up,

Only to bring me down.

Bridge

Cause when I fall, it hurts like hell.

And I know that you can tell.

So why would you

Chorus

Get my hopes up,

Only to bring me down.

Out of self-love,

I'm in self-loathing town.

I've had enough,

Let the pain burn me now,

Get my hopes up,

Only to bring me down.
