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
