It's too late, the time has come
I kept this inside me for way too long
Silence will leave me cold
Lost on a highway that never takes me home

I wanna step aside, I wanna give it up
Before I lose it all, it's tearing me inside
The way you break me down

But there will come a time when I will come undone
And you will let me fall
I'll leave it all behind before you break me down

The weight of a thousand lies
A promise is broken only all the time
You say that you're sure to change
But that black heart reveals that
We always stay the same

I wanna step aside, I wanna give it up
Before I lose it all, it's tearing me inside
The way you break me down

But there will come a time when I will come undone
And you will let me fall
I'll leave it all behind before you break me down

And I realize forgiveness is calling
And it's calling and I deny the reason
I'm falling, yeah, I'm falling
So let go

I wanna step aside, I wanna give it up
Before I lose it all, it's tearing me inside
The way you break me down

But there will come a time when I will come undone
And you will let me fall, I'll leave it all behind
Before you break me down
