lyrics

The day you left was weeks before you walked away
When the hours I waited were eating at me every day
Each minute spent for you, each moment overdue, I’m hoping that you can feel this pain too
This trust we grew, now it’s rotted through, I’ll burn what is left and then trample the ashes

I’m not lost, I’m just losing this dead weight, these steps behind me a path I won’t retrace
I’ll burn this book instead of turning a new page, the last chapter in the tale of you and me

Leave you in the rearview where I finally see you for what you are
A dim light in the distance you shine and you flicker like a fading star
But I know, your light went out long ago
(Take only what you need, I’m taking what I need)

I’m not lost, I’m just losing this dead weight, these steps behind me a path I won’t retrace
I’ll burn this book instead of turning a new page, the last chapter in the tale of you and me

The day you left was weeks before you walked away
When the hours I waited were eating at me every day
Ripped from the binding we can start again, I’d rather burn these words than make amends
(I’m not lost)
Leave you in the rearview where I finally see you for what you are
