lyrics

Should I stay or should I go?
I'm intoxicated by the things I'm feeling but I'm heading for the door
And I'm a sloppy drunk caught in a moment I can't judge
But someone pass the tonic so I can drown to take control of this

Your eyes they saw a different side of me
But what I thought was real is now a tainted memory

And I'm counting down the moments until I am left alone
'Cause I'm done with being used to fill the hole that's in your soul
I've ran the race a million times, but never passed the finish line
I'm stuck, starstruck by you
So starstruck by you

Scraped past the groundwork that I lay
I never made it over
To the greener side I paved
Since you caught me sober
Still catching glitches in my vision
But you'll revel in your glory, shine your trophy
My tears won’t polish it no more

I am counting down the moments until I am left alone
'Cause I'm done with being used to fill the hole that's in your soul
I've ran the race a million times, but never passed the finish line
I'm stuck, starstruck by you
So starstruck by you

A broken candle caught the burn
Lit at both ends, we're chasing time
Whilst spitting venom from our tongues
And claimed it qualified as love
For you and I are past our dancing days
Our tired feet will take the weight
Whilst we dance our separate ways

I am counting down the moments until I am left alone
'Cause I'm done with being used to fill the hole that's in your soul
I've ran the race a million times, but never passed the finish line
I'm stuck, starstruck by you
So starstruck by you

Were all I wanted
All I needed
Now you’re everything I hate
Were all I wanted
All I needed
Now we’re past our dancing days
