Lyrics

You were packing my bags
You didn’t want me to stay
I was drinking too much

You were scared of my touch

I was saying goodbye
You were there by the door
I didn’t mean it for good
I really should have said more

Off the top of my heart
How’s this for a start?
I ain’t living without you baby
I ain’t living without you
Off the top of my heart

There’s no poetry here
But can you hear me out
As I talk through these tears
We can work it all out now

It’s a call to your arms
It’s a desperate plea
It’s a last resort
Hoping these words can save me

Off the top of my heart
How’s this for a start?
I ain’t living without you baby
I ain’t living without you baby
Off the top of my heart
Though it’s torn apart
I ain’t living without you baby
I ain’t living without you
Off the top of my heart
Off the top of my heart
Off the top of my heart

I should have seen it coming
Now you’re gone, I can’t let go
Everything I should have said
Runs through my head so here I go
My broken heart’s still beating baby
Hoping that these words can save me

Off the top of my heart
Off the top of my heart
I ain’t living without you baby
I ain’t living without you baby
Off the top of my heart
Though it’s torn apart
I ain’t living without you baby
I ain’t living without you
Off the top of my heart

Off the top of my heart (off the top of my heart)
Off the top of my heart (off the top of my heart)
Off the top of my heart (off the top of my heart)
Off the top of my heart (off the top of my heart)
