lyrics

I’ve lost my head. I’m hanging by a thread. Could it be everything you do? Have you heard anything I’ve said? I’ve lost my head. I’m through with you. I’ve lost my head!
Just for one moment, could you take the time to hear me out? I am a person of my own. So far, my life’s been so bent around the ones I care about. But in the end, we’re all alone.
You see, I’ve got some things I’ve been trying to hide. Call it courtesy or cowardice, I can’t decide. I’m still choking on these problems I can never reverse, still beating myself up because it’s all getting worse.
I know you can’t hear me when I’m trying to say, “I know you can’t hear me,” but I’ll scream anyway. And if someday down the line you realize what you heard, then the hollow spot inside me might be worth every word.
I am a disappointment. I am afraid I’m different. If you don’t already know this, you don’t know me that well.
I’ve got my share of secrets. I’ve got a mouthful of my regrets, and if there’s one thing that I miss, it’s someone I could tell.
I’ve lost my head. I’m hanging by a thread. Could it be everything you do? Have you heard anything I’ve said?
I’ll never let this part of me forget. We watched the sun arise, but now it’s time to watch it set.
No, I don’t think I’ll need it. You might as well just keep it. No, I don’t care where you leave it. It’s not mine anymore.
What’s it matter where my heart is? I’m just a boy that lost his soul.
Yeah, I’m far from whole.
I guess this is why I’m such an outcast. But why must I hide the person inside? Don’t tell me to change ‘cause believe me, I’ve tried, and watched myself become more downcast as time passed.
So just for one moment, could you take the time to hear me out? I am a person of my own. So far, my life’s been so bent around the ones I care about. But in the end, we’re all alone.
We’re all alone. ALL ALONE!
I’ve tried to be perfect. I’ve fallen, I’ve fought, and I’ve failed. But what the hell did you expect? I’m really sorry my very being prevailed. And I can’t live with myself anymore. I can’t stand me, and neither can you! And though it’s finally too much to ignore, it’s still the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do.
Leave it all behind, leave it all behind.
Leave it all behind, leave it all behind. Life’s too short to mourn the stages. Leave it all behind, leave it all behind.
Life’s too long to live in cages. Leave it all behind, leave it all. LEAVE IT ALL! Leave it all.
