Lyrics

Hook:
Pull me close, break my fall
Say you'll stay through it all
Tear me down, every wall
Tell me what, I can do
Let me crash, into you
Oh, this war
Yeah, I'll lose this fear of loving you

Verse:
We used to be so close
You protected me, I know
I watched you grow tired
So I knew you had to go
Now I'm what's left to show
I've got a life time to go
But how can I keep living
If my main component's missing?
I didn't know you died
So I never said good bye
But somehow that's a lie
Cause I feel guilty for my pride
In the guy that did survive
You saved both of our lives
And I never said thank you
For stepping in my place
When the torment wouldn't stop
And they were laughing in our face
Now it's too late
Can't put flowers on your grave
Cause your body's still with me
I swear I'll keep it safe
I'm looking back amazed
At the ways you kept us sane
And all the things you conquered
Without taking the escape
You had to pull us through
And that makes me wonder too
If that was always true
And that was always you
Then who am I as Shane?
And what have I been through?

Hook:
Pull me close, break my fall
Say you'll stay through it all
Tear me down, every wall
Tell me what, I can do
Let me crash, into you
Oh, this war
Yeah, I'll lose this fear of loving you

Verse:
You're not coming back
Now that I understand
But I wanted to say. "Thank you"
Cause you made me who I am
I hope you're somewhere happy
You're somewhere you belong
It just can't be right here with me
I can pull myself along
I'll keep your love in memory
I've never felt so strong
It took your death to see
That I owe this life to me
Can't always be upset
About the girl I used to be
Now I'm looking in the mirror
Like, "Hey, it's really me!"
I can fight for what I want
And I can tackle all my dreams
So when this body fades
I'll have something I can leave
And when that day comes
You can lay right next to me
And I'll tell you who I am
And how I came to be.

Hook:
Pull me close, break my fall
Say you'll stay through it all
Tear me down, every wall
Tell me what, I can do
Let me crash, into you
Oh, this war
Yeah, I'll lose this fear of loving you
