lyrics

I can’t explain what I don’t know. Most of life is like skipping stones,
and you were never that fond of the cold.
So pull the wool over my eyes for not the first time,
it’s better when you lie (next to me at night).
I don’t need to be someone’s savior, because I’m the one who needs saving.
You never let me grow like you said I was supposed to.
You never let me let go.
You’re the phantom pain heavy on my heart.
You’re where the restless nights start, and I was always scared of the dark.
You never said what you were thinking so I held my tongue like broken glass.
Pierce the skin, I hope this lasts.
When you were all but gone I prayed you’d move on.
Take the air from my lungs. I’ve had enough.
You never let me grow like you said I was supposed to.
You never let me let go in time for both of our heads to wind up clear.
So I guess I will just sit alone and think about those kids we named
who will never see the light of day or see your pretty face.
Or hear you say their name.
Maybe I’ll build that tiny home by myself.
Maybe I’ll travel to the best coast without your help.
You never let me grow like you said I was supposed to.
You never let me let go in time for both of our heads to wind up clear.
So I guess I will just sit alone and think about those kids we named
who will never see the light of day or see your pretty face.
But I guess it’s all the same.
