How can I heal,
When I hold onto my ex?
Do I have no self respect?
Or does it mean something?

Dwelling’s fine for a while,
But it won’t change what happened,
(Move on, be strong, goodbye),
Memories hurt, good or bad,
But it won’t make me saddened,
(Don’t waste your time, don’t cry),
My friends, they smile,
And I can’t help my laughing,
(Don’t let it get you down, no),
If it was meant to be,
Then I would not be gladdened,
(Move on, there’s more around, oh)

But all my thoughts are still cold,
And all my heart’s not consoled,

How can I heal,
When I hold onto my ex?
Do I have no self respect?
Or does it mean something?
The memories of love
Will not subside,
They make me paralysed,
And then I feel nothing,
I find it hard straight away,
But I know I’ll move on,
It’s also hard when you realise,
That you were wrong,

Stop overthinking this,
Life has it’s little blips,
It’s better to have loved and lost,
Than not exist,
It’s better to have felt what it really is

How can I heal,
When I hold onto my ex?
Do I have no self respect?
Or does it mean something?
The memories of love
Will not subside,
They make me paralysed,
And then I feel nothing,
I find it hard straight away,
But I know I’ll move on,
It’s also hard when you realise,
That you were wrong,

I’m done,
There’s no mistaking,
For you,
My heart aint breaking
