lyrics

Don’t thank me for my sacrifice
Don’t know that I would do it twice
The guilt that feeds on my fears
Hating myself for all these years

But you have to find a place to start
That’s always the hardest part
When you’ve been withdrawn so long
You feel like you just don’t belong

CHORUS:
When you got a hard heart
It needs a restart
You think that it’s protecting you by hiding in the dark
But there’s a thin line
Between a land mine
And breaking open things that need to change
In a hard heart

And time ain’t all it takes to heal
You have to relearn how to feel
I thought that I just didn’t care
But I think I found a crack somewhere

So let’s not write this song about me
Cause we all need hope and hope is free
Civilians and soldiers can feel the same
We’re just human beings suffering pain

CHORUS:
From a hard heart
It needs a restart
You think that it’s protecting you by hiding in the dark
Cause there’s a thin line
Between a land mine
And breaking open things that need to change
In a hard heart

Nothing is protecting you by hiding in the dark
You just got a hard heart
Hard heart
So don’t thank me for my sacrifice
