I know you know you've hurt me by now,
But the price to pay is small as long as you stick around.
Oh, it's worth the scars and maybe a broken heart if you stay.

And I don't mind if you buck the trend,
Because everything I do has led to this shining moment.
Oh, I'd jump through hoops if only you would ever ask me to.

And I don't want you to think that I am sad,
But did the ones before me leave because you treated them as bad?
Oh, I'll persevere; denial will keep me here with you.

I have a heart where you have a hole,
Oh but that's okay as long as you know,
I know you're better 'cause we belong together.
