i, i need to get away
i haunt you back, i bring you down
there's only tears when i'm around
i, i need to run away
i don't know where i'll go or how
but the different person i'll become
i, i'm gonna leave today
it'll hurt at first, but then you'll see
that things go better without me

but still, it's all my fault
and it's time to carry
my own heart

i, i need to get away
there's a million miles of road
someplace else i'll take my load
i, i'd like to run away
and after all my money's burned
a different person will return
what, what if i leave you now
when you look back in time you'll know
i was strong to let you go

it's all my fault
it's time to carry
my own heart

i, i need to get away
i fought it hard, but sadness won
far away i might belong
i, i'd like to run away
maybe if i'm on my own
i'll find i'm strong when i'm alone
i, i swear i'll leave today
i won't look back and i won't cry
all my pain i'll leave behind

it's all my fault
and it's time to carry
my own heart
