Lyrics

I never thought you’d ever let me see your face again 
And I’ve survived on memories since I don’t even know when 
I never told you anything, I’ll bet you haven’t a clue 
That even after all this time I can’t let go of you. 

Well I had hoped that everything about you’d come to change 
And I could heal my aching heart with the words that we’d exchange 
But evermore you’re sinking in, you caught me by surprise 
And I’m afraid I’ve lost the world when I look in your eyes. 

How can I convince myself that it’s not meant to be 
When trying not to be in love is hard enough for me 
I would have given anything to just end up with you 
My hands are tied, I’ve lost it all, there’s nothing I can do 

Well I’ve been damned to misery if this is how it ends 
You sit here looking beautiful as we learn to be friends 
I can’t begin to tell you how so much of me has died 
And how I’ll slowly turn to ash and burn to death inside 

How can I convince myself that it’s not meant to be 
When trying not to be in love is hard enough for me 
I would have given anything to just end up with you 
My hands are tied, I’ve lost it all, there’s nothing I can do 

And I’ve been keeping this so long 
It’s every word it’s every song 
And time is nothing but a slow decay 
I really don’t know how to be 
To live my life unhappily 
And nothing feels like it can be okay 
Again 

We lift our empty coffee cups and walk out into the street 
I say it’s so nice seeing you, I’m glad that we could meet 
It’s just so perfect how the clouds have turned the sky to grey 
And how I didn’t notice till you turned to walk away 

How can I convince myself that it’s not meant to be 
When trying not to be in love is hard enough for me 
I would have given anything to just end up with you 
My hands are tied, I’ve lost it all, there’s nothing I can do
