(did you think) love would rescue you

Heartbreak, yeah it’s a common sound
Look at the scraps scattered on the ground
See the tear stains on the mirrored face
In love there’s no such thing as “leave no trace”Did you really think love is gonna rescue you?
Take away the pain, make dreams come true?
You trusted once, and love let you down
Don’t be fooled, love cannot rescue you
Don’t be fooled, yeah, it’s all up to you

Shelves lined with self-help, jackets untorn
Love’s abortions wish they were never born
No one left, no waving wands to make things right
Prayers unprayed never hear it said ” look inside”

Did you really think love is gonna rescue you?
Take away the pain, make dreams come true?
You trusted once, and love let you down
Don’t be fooled, love cannot rescue you
Don’t be fooled, yeah, it’s all up to you

Put your chin up, dry your eyes, find a smile
Nothing is coming, ’cause nothin has left for a while
Toasty croutons on the waves, tide’s bringing them back
Open up now, let it all out, it’s gonna be like that

Did you really think love is gonna rescue you?
Take away the pain, make dreams come true?
You trusted once, and love let you down
Don’t be fooled, love cannot rescue you
Don’t be fooled, yeah, it’s all up to you

You know, you know…it’s all up to you
Love, love cannot rescue you
Only you can make it true
