lyrics

You wanted a martyr
But I didn't die for you
I'm not the means to every end
I gave you an answer
But you questioned every word
You thought you could make me someone else

I was the one who sounded the alarm
But you said it didn't matter
That you think we could get better
Now here we are without

I was a fire but I burned out way too quick
I wasn't warm enough for us
And when the smoke cleared
You couldn't turn away
You thought you could save me from myself

I was the one who shouldered all the blame
And I said it didn't matter
That you think you could do better
Now here we are

I was the one who sounded the alarm
But you said it didn't matter
And it's never getting better
Now here we are without

It's hard to be the one that's hanging on
When everybody else is letting go
