waiting for words that wont ever come
who are you to waste my time?
wondering why i feel so numb
and how nothing feels real
thinking of where and when i went wrong
it’s been so long it’s hard (to know)
it's been so long from what we used to be
its been so long that i can’t let go

months can pass without our paths crossing
and slowly but surely the intensity disappears
but the instant your voice dances through my mind
i am revived with this surge of hope and fear

everything i do to try and bring myself salvation
ends up making things worse
i want to forget the time i’ve lost and move on
but i’m constantly trapped by different versions of you
there’s so much to say that i don’t know where to start
and i’m scared i’ll end up like every other story you tell

we should have known that the sun and the clouds
wouldn’t always hold together
we slowly found out that everything ends
no matter what the weather
even though you have your death grip holding onto
the thing with feathers
and in the end what do i have to show
for all of my endeavors?
let’s postpone the inevitable one more time
for good measure
and even if we survive the collapse of our sun
we will not survive forever

your smile sends strange vibrations
through my troubled soul
your eyes scream what i need you to say
and make me take mine off the goal
dream about ways to show you
everything i feel inside
wake up, bite my tongue
oh well at least i tried

you will no longer define my existence
except in instances in which i forget
that without you i wouldn’t be who i am right now
and that’s the reason i won’t surrender you yet
