I woke up today,
saying your name.
I took a look in the mirror.
I don’t like what I saw.
The man looking back at me,
I don’t know him at all.

I got rope burn.
I hang on too long.
Keep trying to kindle the fire,
long after it's gone.

I asked the man in the mirror,
what do we do?
I can’t trust myself,
so I’ve got to trust you.
He said there’s a lesson to learn,
when you get rope burned.

I got rope burn.
I hang on too long.
Keep trying to kindle the fire,
long after it's gone.

I texted someone else,
today about noon.
Looks like I’m headed over,
to her place soon.
I just hope she doesn’t see,
the scars on my hands.

I got rope burn.
I hang on too long.
Keep trying to kindle the fire,
long after it's gone.
Rope burn...
