lyrics

That day I realized, I had to cut these ties you,
gave me a smile, said you’d stay without abandon.
Restless with heavy eyes I, sat in that car and thought,
“If this flame still burns, tell me why I don’t feel anything.”

Pacing and going in circles in my head, I find it hard to fight for you.
Follow the tracks you’ll find an endless circle, where there’s no room for two.

I think it’s safe to say that, this ship is sinking quick.
We forgot how to swim, the waves pulling us in.
I really hate to say that, this means calling it quits.
We capsized, lost my breath, I need a second wind.

That day I realized, I had to cut these ties you,
gave me a smile, said you’d stay without abandon.
Restless with heavy eyes I, sat in that car and thought,
“If this flame still burns, tell me why I don’t feel anything.”

I saw the warmth fade from your eyes.
Flooded with denial, saying, “this could all be saved in time.”
We’re not on the same page. No we’re not.
So I’ll turn the page to a blank slate, and attempt to write these wrongs.
In time I hope that you can find it deep in your heart,
to forgive, even though I know I shattered and tore it apart.
When you pick up the pieces, and examine the scar,
I hope that you think of me, and know that you’re better off.

That day I realized, I had to cut these ties you
gave me a smile, said you’d stay without abandon.
Restless with heavy eyes I, sat in that car and thought,
“If this flame still burns, tell me why I don’t feel anything.”

We can’t force these pieces to fit.
You know that you’re better off.
We forced these pieces to fit.
It fell apart.

You just wanted to think, this was perfect.
I stopped wanting to fake; quit going through the motions.
You just wanted to think, this was just fine.
I stopped by just to say, I think we’ve run out of time.
