Masterpiece lyrics

You were the centerfold
In my existence

I forgot myself

In you my darling

I wanted to be better for you

In any way possible
I could never be the same

Be the same
You know my heart 

Is yours to have

You were the masterpiece

I am not what you need

So I sing this song for you
You are the centrifuge

For my emotions 

I lost myself

So deeply in you baby baby

I forgot how to live for me

I forgot how to live for me
For my emotions

I’ve died many times

For a glimpse of sanity

Caught up in the memory

Memory 

Of no love

No memory of no love
Memory of something bad

Happening to us

Caught up in the memory

I don’t wanna hurt you anymore

And the centre wouldn’t hold
I forgot how to live for me

I forgot how to live for me
Confronted with ghosts of our past

Centre couldn’t hold

I am not what you need

Don’t wanna hurt you

I hurt you more if I stay

And I can’t stand hurting

Hurting you

I have to go 

This is goodbye
Bye bye baby

Don’t wanna hurt you anymore
