What Doesn't Kill Us​.​.​. Won't

lyrics

Waking up alone in a blanket of darkness,
Ashamed and despising myself once more.
Aware of the one lost somewhere in sadness,
Can't muster the strength to find the door.
Confusion and regret flood my derailed train of thought,
Self-loathing and empty bottles is all I've got.
I need to straighten up, I've got to come down,
To fix my speech and find the words to try to talk you around.

But in my current state,
We can't communicate.
The present actions repeat the past,
And you've seen all this before.

Stale alcohol and nicotine stain the walls,
My clothes, my hair, my skin, my soul.
Mixed messages, word of mouth we're over,
Fear multiplies, you say you've had it all.
How many more times can I let this happen?
How far can I stretch it? Where is the line?
I already know that I'm far past it.
Empty promises fly out yet another time.

I ask again to wipe the slate,
But you don't want to communicate.
So I promise you something more than this,
But you've heard it all before.

Nobody's perfect,
But I know now I can try.
I'm sure we can make it by.
It must be painful,
But I see the end's in sight.
Take my hand, trust me and follow me into the light.

What doesn't kill us won't.
What doesn't kill us won't.
What doesn't kill us won't.
What doesn't kill us won't.

I promised you something more,
Yes, I promised you something more.
Well, I promised you something more than this,
But you've heard all this before.
