lyrics

I said I'm sorry for everything that's happened,
but now I take it back because I know the truth.
You saw it happen and you did nothing to help it,
and now you want me to stay and untie the noose.

Will you pull yourself down and walk away?

Or will you break down on the steps to your house
with your head in your hands and you're drowning in doubt?
Because you fall down like a chandelier.
You lay shattered and broken, alone in your bed.
You can lie to yourself, but it's not all in your head.
Your eyes glisten like chandeliers.

[And I know you can't fight it,
but you're choking, not dying.
So I'll be there to force the air.]

Sometimes it looked like a car crash in slow motion,
and it took me down but I still walked away.
So what's this talk of desire and devotion?
You have no room to talk but always something to say,

and I never needed your help anyway.

So will you break down on the steps to your house
with your head in your hands and you're drowning in doubt?
Because you fall down like a chandelier.
You lay shattered and broken, alone in your bed.
You can lie to yourself, but it's not all in your head.
Your eyes glisten like chandeliers.

[And I know you can't fight it,
but you're choking, not dying.
So I'll be there to force the air.]

I've been holding my tongue in, but you know it's coming for you.
You're choking, you're not dying.

So will you break down on the steps to your house
with your head in your hands and you're drowning in doubt?
Because you fall down like a chandelier.
You lay shattered and broken, alone in your bed.
You can lie to yourself, but it's not all in your head.
Your eyes glisten like chandeliers.

So will you break down?
So will you break down?
You lay shattered and broken alone in your bed.
Lie to yourself, but it's not all in your head.
Your eyes glisten like chandeliers.
