Verse 1

I've lost my joy, and I've lost my bliss.

My heart's missing a gigantic piece.

I'm lying broken amidst debris.

And I feel the hopelessness that's inside of me rise,

I'm plunging into the dark, free falling from the skies.

And I feel the lack of dreams burn a hole deep inside,

I've been lost in oblivion, with pain as my guide.

Pre Chorus

I close my eyes against the past

That's dissolving into thin air

With every breathe that leaves my lungs.

I hold my head high till at last

I learn to make a solitaire

Out of the hate born from your tongues.

Chorus

And I, I'm the iron with dent,

And I, I'm the soul that won't mend,

But I'm the one who never gives up.

You can strip me of your love,

But I'm the one who never gives up.

Verse 2

So I shed tears till it burns my skin,

And my fractured legs turn to tail fin.

Now you won't get to see me drowning.

And I feel the daunting strength that's inside of me rise.

I'm swimming through your venom, staring at my old skies.

And I feel a flutter of life that's left deep inside,

I've been set into motion now, with pain as my guide.

Pre Chorus

I close my eyes against the past

That's dissolving into thin air

With every breathe that leaves my lungs.

I hold my head high till at last

I learn to make a solitaire

Out of the hate born from your tongues.

Chorus

And I, I'm the iron with dent,

And I, I'm the soul that won't mend,

But I'm the one who never gives up.

You can strip me of your love,

But I'm the one who never gives up.

Bridge

So with such little times in my hands,

And a part of me lost to your quicksand,

I close my eyes against the past

That's dissolving into thin air

With every breathe that leaves my lungs.

I hold my head high till at last

I learn to make a solitaire

Out of the hate born from your tongues.

Chorus

And I, I'm the iron with dent,

And I, I'm the soul that won't mend,

But I'm the one who never gives up.

You can strip me of your love,

But I'm the one who never gives up.
