Lyin' here alone with you we hardly make a sound
I miss stayin' up at night just to talk or mess around
You couldn't get enough of me

Now I think of some excuse ev'ry time you shut me out
Blame myself and give you the benefit of doubt
You're here but you don't wanna be

I let you let me down
I keep lowerin' and lowerin' the bar
And every time I do
I'm just breakin' breakin' my own heart

Now when I get home, you don't ask about my day
I lean in for a kiss you don't meet me half the way
It's like you've given up on me


It hurts to stay here
It hurts to go
Damage has been done
But hearts can get unbroke


So I won't let you let me down
Now I'm raisin' up the bar I'm raisin' up that bar
Never let it drop
Gonna stop breakin' my own heart
Breakin' my own heart breakin' my own heart
