Open Wounds
Music and lyrics by John L. Cooper and Kevin Kadish.
2003 Photon Music (BMI). All Rights Reserved.
 
In the dark with the music on,
Wishing I were somewhere else.
Taking all your anger out on me.
Somebody help.
I would rather rot alone then spend a minute with you.
I'm gone, I'm gone.

And, you can't stop me from falling apart
'Cause my self-destruction is all your fault.

Chorus:
How could you, how could you,
How could you hate me
When all I ever wanted to be was you?
How could you, how could you,
How could you love me
When all you ever gave me were open wounds?

Downstairs the enemy sleeps,
Leaving the T.V. on.
Watching all the dreams we had turn into static.
Doesn't matter what I do.
Nothing's gonna change - I'm never good enough.

And, you can't stop me from falling apart
'Cause my self-destruction is all your fault.

(Chorus)

Tell me why you broke me down
And betrayed my trust in you.
I'm not giving up, giving in
When will this war end?
When will it end??

You can't stop me from falling apart
You can't stop me from falling apart
You can't stop me from falling apart
'Cause my self destruction is all your fault.

(Chorus)
