There are so many things I can't explain, so I'll keep on hiding. And there are so many things I wish I could change, but I tire from trying. And it's been far too long, I must say, since I've felt the ocean. And how quickly the timing slips away when we lack devotion. And you don't know me. And you don't see me. And you can't understand when those days "just happen." Another month has almost passed me by, and the words stop flowing. I'm sad to say that it's no big surprise, as time has shown me. All the ups and downs that find themselves at home change ever slowly, And we convince ourselves that we are not alone, when that's all we can see. And you don't know me. And you don't see me. And you can't understand when those days "just happen."

I have never loved like this before. I think back to the days when we both swore, like only young love could ever think, that the glimmer in our eyes would never shrink. I befriended the bottle these last few weeks, And fell into the valleys most wouldn't seek. And the songs that inspire can also bring you down, To notice the microscopic aspect of this town. This is the letter I could never send. I would not expect you to understand, Especially when I can't explain it myself. Familiar names all have familiar faces, And I've been lost in these familiar places, So pour me another drink, another taste, So I'll forget what I remember that we once embraced. This is the letter I could never send. I would not expect you to understand, Especially when I can't explain it myself. Especially when I can't explain it myself.

I see your face inside every song, And the leftover pieces, and how they don’t belong. They lay scattered across the dreariest land That I still have yet to be able to understand. Can we start this over? The music always found the wind to push the sails Through much bigger storms, but all with no detail. But this time it was different because the waters won, And we watched as this tapestry, as it slowly became undone. Can we start this over?
4.
I know this is not the place where I should be, And steps to change it are too far out of reach. The things I’ve noticed, at least it seems to me, That faking progress is hollow as it seems. Wasting time is wasting away For no one ever stays. I’m changing channels when nothing else is on. The time is passing, but it’s been far too long. It’s so familiar, the taste of victory. If I am dreaming, then let me stay asleep. Wasting time is wasting away For no one ever stays. I’m too tired to fight this anymore.
5.
Did we ever stop to face The broken pieces in our way? Shards of glass stick in our feet And blood remains where we meet Oh Though the rain has washed away Most reminders from those days Still evidence is seen And a heart desires to be clean Oh We fake a smile As if we can laugh about it now But there’s no way We fake a smile As if we can laugh about it now But there’s no way, no way There’s no way We can laugh about it now
