Day after day, I let you down
Promise you to change, then change my mind
And every time I promise you it will all be fine
It won't be like this next time

The days you wait turn into years
Always wait in helpless tears, hopeless nights
And all the fears
It will always be like this

You give me everything you have
Hoping it will someday be enough
To melt my heart
To make me fall in love

Day after day, I let you down
Promise you to change it all, then change my mind
And every time I promise you soon be fine
It won't be like this next time

But tonight we play I think the final act
I push too hard and you crack
Walk away, don't look back
This time you've really gone

You give me everything you have
Knowing it can never be enough
My heart's too old, too hard, too cold
For your love
