Verse 1

And the past wraps itself around my slender wrist,

Like a leaden handcuff.

And it drags me to the end, my tale has no twist,

Those demons won't give up.

I stand frozen in my place,

Look of horror in my face,

Brown eyes void of all but tears,

While they're ready with their spears.

Chorus

How can a wound ever heal

If they keep ripping the band-aid?

How am I supposed to feel

When their presence makes me afraid?

Verse 2

And the past wraps itself all over my burnt skin,

Like an icy blanket.

And it keeps reminding me of mistakes and sins,

Am I in Hell's casket?

My mind replays the events,

Neither one of us were saints,

But I was a weak human,

And you broke me cause you can.

Chorus

How can a wound ever heal

If they keep ripping the band-aid?

How am I supposed to feel

When their presence makes me afraid?

Bridge

I've been living dead,

A soul tainted black,

A heart bleeding red.

Chorus

How can a wound ever heal

If they keep ripping the band-aid?

How am I supposed to feel

When their presence makes me afraid?

Chorus

How can a wound ever heal

If they keep ripping the band-aid?

How am I supposed to feel

When their presence makes me afraid?
