Lyrics

You heart was whole without me
Before I came into your life.
You knew nothing about me.
Still I wanted you in mine.
How could I let myself
Get tangled up with you?
I could not protect myself
From a love that was untrue.

And you set my soul on fire,
And you were content to watch me burn.

My heart was cold before you.
Thought you'd make it beat again.
Didn't love me like I loved you,
So you made it bleed instead.
How could I give so much
To one who'd just receive?
Were you happy when I gave away
The better part of me?

And you set my soul on fire,
But you felt no passion in return.
Yes, you set my soul on fire,
And you were content to watch me burn.

And there in your presence
In a sea of tears I drowned.
You didn't stop to catch me.
No, you pushed me to the ground.
And sadly I knew all along
You'd only let me down.

My heart's been freezing without you
And it grows colder still.
I keep dreaming about you
And I know I always will.
How do you still effect me
Even though you're never here?
You stay with me in memory
So I still can feel you near.

And you set my soul on fire,
But you felt no passion in return.
Yes, you set my soul on fire,
And you were content to watch me burn.

Your heart was whole without me
Before I came into your life...
