It was on a wedding day
When my heart began to stray
Never thought I'd make such a big mistake
Throw my life away

I've gone days without food
I've went weeks without sleep, keeping this in
I've got cuts I can't close
I've got wounds that won't heal, it's all your fault

I've been shattered and wrecked
My hand's covered in blood, scars on my skin
I forgot how to feel
Now I'm weak with deceit, my skin is paper thin

We've been through this
Feeling it, keeping it, holding it and
We go through this
Over and over again

I go years without tears
In a life with no fear, a life without you
Now I'm breaking my back as
I cover my tracks, my skin is paper thin once again

We've been through this
Feeling it, keeping it, holding it and
We go through this
Over and over again

I've gone days without food
I've went weeks without sleep, keeping this in
I've got cuts I can't close
I've got wounds that won't heal, it's all your fault

My American dream
Wasn't ever to rise to your [Incomprehensible]
Even with [Incomprehensible] what's the point?
I wish that it wouldn't stop

We've been through this
Feeling it, keeping it, holding it and
We go through this
Over and over again

We've been through this
Feeling it, keeping it, holding it and
We go through this
Over and over again

This was not a test, this was all for real
This was not a test, this was all for real
This was not a test, this was all for real
This was not a test, this was all for real
