lyrics

Steaming hearts' glory comes from rising up from pain.
The pieces put together are forgotten all the same.
It's the one who knew you best who can pull you to your worst
and the one you'd thought would last is the one who drops out first.

Always waiting for a big change
looking at me strange
like i'm the one who doesn't know what's to come.
I'm tryin' to stick with you
this thing we're holding to
but you make it so hard sometimes I'm thinking that we're through.

I can't keep on going on like everything's okay.
If you wanna keep me you gotta change your way.
I've done all I can do to see the diamond in the rough
and now I have had enough.

I will get over this, over so fast
I may cry through the night till my devil's gone at last.
This steaming heart will cool and melt into the past.

There's something to be said for trying out the smooth,
even though your words don't match your mood.
So you can slip on by and leave me to my peace
'cause I', done being crazy, I've got a release.

I will get over this, over so fast
I may cry through the night till my devil's gone at last.
This steaming heart will cool and melt into the past.

See to what you feel. Don't hide behind your face.
Breathe, breathe breathe through to heal. I'm falling into grace.

So it's good that you found me before I could do me harm.
I was lying in the grass singing vexes to the charms.
And I would have built that fire up to reach the sky
but the rains came down from a cloudless high.

I will get over this, over this and fast
This steaming heart will cool and melt into the past.
