I put these walls up.
I shouldn't have let you in.
Because now it's all blown up.
Sending us both into a tailspin.

I thought I was strong.
But holy shit I was wrong.
Something's not right in my head,
So I should have put myself first instead.

I'm trying to make it work,
But the demons are there 24/7 like clockwork.
Never leaving me alone,
Leaving me feeling like stone.

I've learned to live with them,
So I don't fall apart at the stem.
But I can't let you carry my weight.
So for now, this is our fate.

I just want you to know,
I'm hurting so.
Though it's what must be done,
Then hopefully the demons I can outrun.
