Sorry to myself, I couldn’t help but overhear you
Your face is the name, voice just as I remember
Maybe your hair’s longer, arms a little stronger
I never prepared for a moment like that to hit me
So it took nothing to bring me right back in time
My eyes won’t cry anymore, done looking back
But still, I love control too much, has to be my way
I knew when I saw you you’d get all in my way
You act like an addict, one hit and it’s never enough
You want to run through me inside and out
Dirty tissues still hanging out, trust issues- lock it up
And the voices bouncing around in my head
Hesitate, hesitate again. Stop. Stop. Go.
Where’s the sunshine, I lost the safe and sound
Why do I still bother? Why did you ever bother?
I should’ve done better, you should’ve done better
Because now I get to stay up, fighting the moon
You have to give and I have to break
How did it get so far gone that I couldn’t see truth?
Hoping I’m not hopeless, I’m hiding emotions
Because gravity can’t hold me down, gravity
Can’t hide the consequences.
