Cut it away, somebody cut away this desperate heart
Cut it away and help me find my way back to the start
Yeah, before I knew what I was looking for
Yeah, when we were lovers and nothing more

I wanted you and I did everything that I could do
To capture you I let you see the part of me
Youd want to see a fantasy
Im finding now I dont know how
To make it good I wish I could

Cut it away this crazy longing for something more
Cut it away the question I dont have an answer for
Why I hunger for something I cant see
Cut it away the dream I wanted life to be

I know I've got to let you go
I know you should have left a long time ago

Protected by the night two cities lay
Two hearts, two lives connected by our sight
World's away, two hearts, two lives inspected by the light
Two hearts, two cities in decay
Two lives repair them as we might
Two hearts just go on crumbling, now come on

Cut it away I want to cut away this thing inside
Cut it away this thing that hid from you and schemed and lied
I know I've got to let you go
I know you should have left a long time ago

Cut it away, somebody cut away this desperate heart
Cut it away before it tears my whole life apart
I love you, I love you still, I do
I always will
