My Own Demise

Folder: 
PP Elite

“Intro”
All I wanted was your love
But I was never good enough
All I wanted was your trust
But I can feel it in your touch
And now I know the truth


”Bridge 1”
The best of me is the worst of you
And I am nothing in your eyes
I fail at everything I do
I am my own demise


”Verse 1”
All I wanted was to be
Everything you’d ever need
But I can see it clearly in your eyes
The truth is hard to swallow
Deep inside I’m hollow
And that’s the story of my life


”Chorus”
I chose to be who I’ve always been
Dark and hollow deep inside
And I refused to see what needed seen
I covered up my eyes
I could be what I once was
All I’d have to do is try
I know what my own self-hate does
But I can never say goodbye


”Verse 2”
I know that I could be happy again
And live the life that I should live
If I let go of my pride
I know now that this is the end
And all I need is to give in
I know who I am inside


”Chorus”
I chose to be who I’ve always been
Dark and hollow deep inside
And I refused to see what needed seen
I covered up my eyes
I could be what I once was
All I’d have to do is try
I know what my own self-hate does
But I can never say goodbye


”Bridge 2”
I’m dark and hollow deep inside
And I am my own demise


”Chorus”
I chose to be who I’ve always been
And I refused to see what needed seen
I covered up my eyes
I could be what I once was
I know what my own self-hate does
But I can never say goodbye


”Verse 3”
The very best of me is the worst of you
You never saw the other side
My thoughts are constantly subdued
As I close my weary eyes
The very worst in me was the best in you
And we just ran out of time
Now there’s nothing else that I can do
Because I am my own demise


”Chorus”
I chose to be who I’ve always been
Dark and hollow deep inside
And I refused to see what needed seen
I covered up my eyes
I could be what I once was
All I’d have to do is try
I know what my own self-hate does
But I can never say goodbye


”Chorus”
I choose to be who I’ll always be
Dark and hollow deep inside
And I refuse to see what I should see
Always covering my eyes
I could be what I once was
All I’d have to do is try
I know what my own self-hate does
But I can never say goodbye


”Fade Out”
The very best
From the worst


I know I am my own demise
And, I never said goodbye
No, I never said goodbye
