Verse 1:
Well I heard that you go missing
Every time this time of year rolls around
Nobody blames you for your distance
If they were you, then they would do what you do now

But I think it's strange that you mark your days
With an "X", and how an ex love let you down
Like playing tic-tac-toe and you play the "O"
Then you gave up every turn with every round

And it's harder than one would expect
Not to define yourself by what happened
But what's done is done, what's said, is said
So look ahead--it won't hurt you again
If you don't let it.

Chorus:
'Cause Heaven knows the hell and back you've overcome
But a broken heart still needs to soldier on
And I know that it's easier said than done
But it can't get any worse, so carry on

Verse 2:
Well it looks like you look back
To make peace with all had passed
And you're hoping that
The good outweighs the bad
Well, there's nothing wrong with that

But you analyze just like you've quit
And given up on future happiness
And the hole you're in has you convinced
That this is it
You should take what you get
But no don't

Chorus:
'Cause Heaven knows the hell and back you've overcome
But a broken heart still needs to soldier on
And I know that it's easier said than done
But it can't get any worse, so carry on

Bridge:
And live, don't you think you should try again?
It's naive to think a heart will never mend.
But for anything to change, a constant effort needs to be made--
So take your baby steps and go

Chorus:
'Cause Heaven knows the hell and back you've overcome
But a broken heart still needs to soldier on
And I know that it's easier said than done
But it can't get any worse, so carry on
