i tried my best to make it work
but you wouldn’t meet me halfway
no compromise and no words you say are gonna change my mind

i tried to save you from the hurt
but you wouldn’t let it be that way
no compromise

you were the one who dragged us down
made it too hard to stick around
made it impossible, improbable
i was the one who tipped the scales
but you sent them all the way
crashing to the ground into pieces

you stood your ground
no room to move
don’t understand the give or take

if this how story ends
then please let it be said
i’ve no regrets

you had to control it all
until the day i told you i was leaving
i couldn’t stay to watch you fall
watch you self destruct and destroy everything
everything you loved, everything we were
everything that we were yet to be
i lost belief, in you and me and all that we held dear
this is how our story ends
