man, it’s been a long night. just sitting here,
trying not to look back. still looking at the road
we never drove on & wondering if the one i
chose was the right one.
i just think we should stay stuck in the
moment today. and as the seasons roll by,
no matter how hard i try, summer will end
and the leaves will turn again.
if “happy ever after” did exist, i would still be
holding you like this. all those fairy tales are full
of shit. one more fucking love song, i’ll be sick.
i know it’s hard to remember the people we
used to be. it’s even harder to picture that
you’re not here next to me. you say it’s too
late to make it, but is it too late to try?
all the pain you try to hide shows through your
mascara lines as they stream down from your eyes.
and let them go, let them fly! holding back won’t
turn back time. believe me, i’ve tried.
when did the rain become a storm? when
did the clouds begin to form? yeah, we got
knocked off course by a natural force and
we’ll be swimming when it’s gone.
i count the ways i let you down; all my fingers
and toes but i’m running out. clever words
can’t help me now. i grip you tight but
you’re slipping out.
and i know i said it a million times, but
i’ll only stay with you one more night.
but baby there you go again making me love you. yeah,
i stopped using my head, let it all go. got you stuck on
my body like a tattoo. and now i’m feeling stupid,
crawling back to you.
never asked you to change, but sadly you don’t feel the same about me.
What am I supposed to do to get by? Did I
lose everything I need to survive? Cause at
4am, when the sweat sets in, did you get my
message? Did it send? Or did you just get on with your life?
now that i’ve done my time
i need to move on and i need you to try
cause we’re out of goodbyes.
