Cold Hearts Caught Fire (Romance)

lyrics

I swore I'd live to see this
I lost track of time
She asks me where I'm going
I had hell in mind.

And if you make it through this
Please know that I'll be fine
Thought I could take the pressure
We'll all collapse in time.

So young and tired
Cold hearts had caught fire
A constant reminder
Of death and desire
Each mile between us
My head takes me higher
Our hearts will still beat
But it's time to retire.

My head will take the blame
Each time you throw lies at me.
My heart will die in vain
Like a ship lost in the sea.
Your sins won't go unnoticed
Each one has a price to pay.
I can't begin to rest
With these ghosts haunting me.

I woke up this morning
Oh no, not today
The deafening silence
Of hearing your name
How much more pressure
Can this body take?
It squeezes and sucks
The life out of me.

Why don't you see it
Words that you said
Destroying eachother
With fear of regret.

Why can't you see it
Now it's too late
Can't turn back the clock
You've already changed.

It's stuck in my head
That look that she gave
The signs of defeat
And choices she made
I'm tired of believing
Every word that you say
I'm begging you please
Wipe that grin of your face.

Handguns and Romance,
Heartbeats and Caskets.

My hands around her neck
I swear it was an accident
It was done and over
Before I knew what had happened
Her body's on the floor
Kicking and screaming
How much of this life
Is worth repeating
I've told you before
There's a price to pay.

Why don't you see it
Words that you said
Destroying eachother
With fear of regret.
Why can't you see it
Now it's too late
Can't turn back the clock
You've already changed.

I can't take this constant pressure
Under this winter sky.
I can't take this constant pain
I might break tonight.
