Arrow at my Heart


You know lifes a pretty hard place
I’m in a fight for my life
Challenge after challenge
Fight after fight
And I don’t wanna go

I’m too busy trying not to look at the arrows aimed at my own heart
But I’ve already pulled on the string
I can’t aim away and I can’t pull back
I’m locked in and I’ve taken aim

But I’m trying not to look
I feel the tip pressed against my heart
Just give me a reason to let go
But I can’t just throw my life away

So I’m looking to change
I’m looking to give up
Neithers happening so I end up fighting for days
Tired of who I am
Tired of wanted to change

I’m fighting to fight
I’m fighting to change
I’m fighting to give up
Just give me a reason to let go
I don’t want to feel the pain
But I can’t just throw my life away

You can call me a coward
You can call me brave
It’s not like it matters anyway
I’ve been broken for days
I want to give up,
I want to change
Neithers happening I end up fighting for days

My hearts telling me to listen to my head
to listen to my heart
to listen to my head
And there I go crying again

But I’m busy trying not to look at the arrows aimed at my heart
I give a sideways glance, I look into your eyes
Turn back to it I understand
I’m fighting to let go
I don’t want to feel the pain
But this arrows been in my heart for days
So why not let go
