Verse 1

You blackmail me into silence

Just to protect your false image.

You threaten me with consequence

If I utter just one sentence.

Pre chorus 1

I let you get away with it,

Not out of love, not out of fear.

If I drag you through the mud now,

I too would be left mud stained here.

Chorus

I'm taking the high road now

Because all that matters

Is to leave you behind in the past,

Let go of the magic that didn't last.

If I told the whole world how

You have made me shatter,

That won't repair my broken mast.

The rumours will just spread fast.

Verse 2

Well that will not help heal my pain.

That will drag me backwards again.

And I need to be moving on,

Not slandering the one who's gone.

Pre chorus 2

I let you walk away scot free,

Not out of the goodness of my heart.

If I unleash the wolves on you,

Soon they'll turn and tear me apart.

Chorus

I'm taking the high road now

Because all that matters

Is to leave you behind in the past,

Let go of the magic that didn't last.

If I told the whole world how

You have made me shatter,

The rumours will just spread fast.

That won't repair my broken mast.

Bridge

So your secret's safe with me.

I will just let you be.

Chorus

I'm taking the high road now

Because all that matters

Is to leave you behind in the past,

Let go of the magic that didn't last.

If I told the whole world how

You have made me shatter,

The rumours will just spread fast.

That won't repair my broken mast.
