lyrics

You know I’m sorry 'cause I say it so often
I know you’re tired I can tell by the look on your face
So tell me how you're gonna make a move
And not crawl inside yourself and play the recluse

This game’s gone on as long as I can remember
Those stupid pills made their way through your blood and react
And now your skin is whiter than a ghost
Dark eyes are suken in it pains me to see you so close

I spent a long time getting over you
I got carried away in someone’s hotel room
I made you look like a fool and you never knew

I took your hands / you put your hands, right on top of mine
I kept you warm / and I held you close, In winters coldest time
Gave you a song / my favorite chords they all sound the same,
Put you to bed / when I got drunk, oh it took away the pain
You can’t say you don’t want me to leave and then fall asleep
Like there’s nothing to do

I spend a long time getting over you
I got carried away in someone’s hotel room
I made you look like a fool
And you never knew

You can’t say you don’t want me to leave
And then fall asleep
For all things that I tried to make right that you buried deep alone

Alone
