I know it’s hard, you’re fighting it
You’re sort of scared that you’ve ruined it
And you can’t turn back around this time

You want to run, but you know you’ll fall
You won’t be able to stand up, no you’ll have to crawl
And the struggle will show the truth

‘Cause each night when you lay down in bed beside of him
Thoughts run wild inside your head and you can’t sleep
Because I am on your mind

It’s a pain deep down you can’t get rid of
Like a plague of emotions baby, eating you up
When will the hurt be too much

Like a wilting rose, you will fall apart
If you keep continuing to play games with your heart
And the thoughts, they will still remain

Each night when you lay down in bed beside of him
Thoughts run wild inside your head and you can’t sleep
Because I am on your mind

Each night when you lay down in bed beside of him
Thoughts run wild inside your head and you can’t sleep
Because I am on your mind

Like a wilting rose, you will fall apart
