Lyrics

Held up on my last strings
Of this marionette of me
That you control in your spare time
Pick me up, I’m a pantomime
But cut the act
And all the strings
And the stupid smile
You’ll see inside I’m slowly breaking
My heart is aching

This marionette of me
Just ain’t cut out
To be what I would like to be

Skulls and heart and crossbones
Pick me up when I am alone
The only friends that I dare see
In fears of what you’d do to me
But let me fall
Onto the dusty floor
And let me cry and talk
What I have held inside for so long

Chorus
I’m cutting all my strings
You can try to hold on
But I’m already gone

Held up, by your
Dwindling nervous hands
x2

Chorus
I’m, cutting all my strings
You can try to hold on
But I’m already gone

Of this marionette of me
This ain’t me
No

Tess Dunn

Lyrics

S?nny walks along
And the silver moon is filled to the brim
You were holding my hand
I can’t say I remember much after that
You left before goodbye
Maybe if I hadn’t said
Maybe if I hadn’t done that
You’d still be here with me
But you left me laying here
With my fears
Alone in this empty bed

S?nny walks
S?nny walks
S?nny walks away x2

It was an accident
I didn’t mean to say you could leave
But you took my invitation
Anyway
You left me standing
Left the door swinging on its hinges
As if to leave a memory of tonight

Chorus
Please tell me
Please tell me
Please tell me you’ll stay
Please don’t walk
Please don’t walk
Please don’t walk away

How’s the weather over there?
Is it clear?
It’s not the same without you
Let me start from right there
Do you never go a night
Without thinking of me?
That’s how it is on my side
And it’s tearing me apart

S?nny walks
S?nny walks
S?nny walks away
Please tell me
Please tell me
Please tell me you’ll stay, ‘cause
It’ll never
It’ll never
Never be okay
If you walk
If you walk
If you walk away
Please don’t let me
Please don’t let me
Please don’t let me say
You can walk
You can walk
You can walk away

Please won’t you
Please won’t you
Please won’t you stay?

Lyrics

Everyone knows who you are
You wear your fame like a scar
Going in and out
Of everyone’s mouths
You know they talk, and yes they do
You know it’s usually about you
It feels so great, but sometimes
You wish you could, escape

Did you know, you’re my hero?
The enemy in this battle with
My heart

So you’re on the ground again
And thinking this is the end
You’ve had your fall
Now you’re gonna lose it all

Chorus

Slow down
Look around
Lower your weapons
Relax
Don’t look back
You got a new direction

Chorus
Please don’t rip, it apart
‘Cause
Chorus
My heart, in my heart

Slow down
Look around
Lower your weapons
X2

Lyrics

Why wear your favorite dress
If you’re not there to impress?
Why should I even go at all?
Why shoot me down again?
If it’s already ended
What’s the point of wishing?

And no it won’t be fine
If I can’t call you mine
It’ll never be okay
If you stand to walk away
Well I should feel ashamed
You put my love to waste
And if there’s more to say
Tell me, don’t walk away

I don’t want you to lie
Is forgetting me fine?
Could you say my name right now?
These scars are here to show
The ways you let me know
That you’ll never feel the same

Chorus

If you’re happy
I am happy
Don’t forget to remember me
If you cry
I will cry
Don’t think that I still don’t care
This is only
A recording
A simple little thing
But let me know
If you’re there
Listening
X2

Chorus

Well I should feel ashamed
Well you should feel ashamed
Well we should feel ashamed
It was all just a waste
And you were just a waste
And it put my love to waste
‘Cause it was all just a waste

Lyrics

Everything I said today came out the wrong way
I didn’t mean half the things I said
I should’ve known I’d screw this up
I should’ve known this would be the end

But if you’re listening right now
I mean what I say
I miss you
I’m sorry I couldn’t live up to your standards
I tried my best to be everything

So this is what it’s like without you
I didn’t know it could be this lonely
I’m living on my knees, not strong enough to stand
Without your helping hand

Chorus

And I still
Pick up the phone at midnight
Like I always did at this time
I’m not used to this yet
‘Cause I still
Go to sleep with high hopes
That we’ll be fine tomorrow
But we never are

Chorus

I’m sorry
What else is there to say?
These words are so useless when they’re nothing but sounds
I’m sorry
What else do you want me to say?
These words are so useless when they’re nothing but sounds
I’m sorry
Can’t think of what else to say
These words are so useless when they’re nothing but sounds
I’m sorry
There’s nothing else to say
‘Cause words are so useless for they’re nothing but sounds

Lyrics

Just you and me
But I’m a page ahead
You’d say I’m behind
You always contradicted statements
Just me and you
But you’re not listening
You need to hear me out
I won’t always be around

And you shone like the stars
‘Til it was day
Then you’d just
Sorta fade away
You were like a hero
‘Til it was night
You fell asleep
That’s when I saw hero die

Now you hate me
Don’t know why you do
Well I’m sorry hero
I’m over it now why aren’t you?
Now I’ve lost you
Guess you threw out my note
That apologized
For when nothing was fine

Chorus

Hero
Can you hear me?
I’m calling out
Hero
Can I save you?
I see you falling out

Chorus

You shone brighter than the stars
‘Til it turned to day
Then you would slowly, you’d fade away
You were my hero
‘Til it became night
You fell asleep
I saw you die

I saw hero die tonight
I saw the light leave his eyes
I saw hero die
It wasn’t a pretty sight
X2

I kissed hero goodbye
Knowing it would be the last time
