lyrics

The cameras flash when she smiles,
But they fail to illuminate
A private hell with a public face.

And I could never relate.
As caution hit the wind,
The impact allowed the light in.

It’s in the way that she moves,
And when the right words find their way,
It’s too late for anything to change.

But don’t worry your pretty head;
I’m not that easy to forget.
I can’t be that easy to forget.

I held right here and weathered the storm in my own way.
The fictions she held dear allowed her the wings to fly away.

I’m second-guessing our tale,
An attempt to find what I can deem
To be truth in this fabricated dream.

And it’s amazing to see
The warning signs that I ignored.
Some things are beyond me to restore.

But I should rest easy now;
If this was karma at its worst,
I could not imagine this reversed.

So don’t worry your pretty head,
I said, I’m not that easy to forget.
I can’t be that easy, can’t be that easy to forget.

I held right here and weathered the storm in my own way.
The fictions she held dear allowed her the wings to fly away.
