lyrics

We could turn this out
The house won’t burn down
But your thoughts are not your own
They’re just others’ that you found
I don’t wanna go back
And I don’t wanna bear the weight
‘Cause I’ve found you out
You’ve confirmed my doubts

I need to drown you out of my head.
Some things are better left unsaid.

You always spoke so loud about the way you felt
But I bit my tongue, kept it to myself
So tell me again what you saw in me
‘Cause I became worse with you around
Became worse with you around

Is there anything I can keep of us that will last?
Forgive, forget, do we forego the past?

Struggling with the here and now
I find comfort in the past
In that out of tune piano
Falling asleep on your couch
Even the layout of your house

Was it ever this simple?
Am I making this up?
The years since then have become minutes

And if only I’d turn around
I’m sure you’d be standing there
I’ve held that memory close
But I’ve kept it dusty to hide the truth

‘Cause I’ve learned with you that things fade to grey
That’s another way of saying it died and decayed

Every fight, blood spilled is nothing gained
But we grow
Stifled we grow
And I know we won’t take back anything
Still we grow
Stifled we grow
