You don't fight fair, you know

Tugging at my heartstrings

The minute I start heading for the door

Pulling me back into your arms

When we both know damn well

That just ain't where I belong, no

These games that we're playing

The day and night, one-sided firefight

Is wearing me down, down, down

But when all is said and done

And I'm going through the motions

Of the seasons without you by my side

Well...it's strange...and nothing feels

Quite like it did before

So I'm saying, "Let me go!"

My heart is in pieces

My mind is in shackles

A fork's in the road

And I don't know which way to go

Woah, oh oh oh oh oh (x3)

Do you understand what you do?

Your image is the nicotine

Embedded in the drug of your love

Dragging me back to that place

Kicking and screaming,

"I know I won't last on my own!"

'Cause I can't kick this habit

I can feel the cancer cells

Metastasizing deep in my brain

And when all is said and done

The sweet scent you left behind

Is masked by toxic memories

It's strange...and nothing feels

Quite like it did before
