only a memory lyrics – icon for hire

i can’t help but close my eyes for life
and dream a different ending
that when i wake, i won’t be so exhausted
and i will stop with my pretending
that i’m fine, i’m fine if i can fool myself tonight
and my lie will drown out all of yours

i will not bend until i break, how much can one bruised body take?
just not enough to silence me, you’re only a memory
i’ll scream these words ’til they come true, then i will think no more of you
look back on what i’m going through, this isn’t my ident*ty

you will bleed for what your hands have done
you can’t outrun your ending
and i’ll get well long before you let yourself
i may forgive you, but you never will

i will not bend until i break, how much can one bruised body take?
just not enough to silence me, you’re only a memory
i’ll scream these words ’til they come true, then i will think no more of you
look back on what i’m going through, this isn’t my ident*ty

and i told you, i told you, you had no right
how damaged you must be
watch you panic, it’s tragic, you’ll carry this for life
you have my sympathy

i will not bend until i break, how much can one bruised body take?
just not enough to silence me, you’re only a memory
i’ll scream these words ’til they come true, then i will think no more of you
look back on what i’m going through, this isn’t my ident*ty

you’re only a memory
this isn’t my ident*ty

you’re only a memory
this isn’t my ident*ty (i will not bend)
you’re only a memory (i will not break)
this isn’t my ident*ty (i will not bend)
you’re only a memory (i will not break)
this isn’t my ident*ty (i will not bend)
you’re only a memory (i will not break)
this isn’t my ident*ty (i will not bend)
you’re only a memory (i will not break)
this isn’t my ident*ty (i will not bend)
you’re only a memory (i will not break)
this isn’t my ident*ty
