I am afraid you don't hold my best interests.
You rope your arms around my neck and squeeze.
Carry on this way, leave me as wreck while you're at ease.

Tripping at times we go and do things your way,
It's my own failing for letting you decide.
It breaks my heart, but I'm going to let it slide.

Try on other clothes too,
But each time desperation suits you.

When I wake up so early in the morning,
I just want us to get along.
It breaks my heart admitting I was wrong.

Try out other styles too,
Always desperation suits you.

I am afraid you can't hold it together.
All I can do is watch it while it falls apart.
It breaks us up, you know it breaks my heart.
You know it breaks my heart.
