"Never Let This Go"
You've got one hell of a nerve calling me out,
Sharing the sickness, spreading the doubt.
It must be hard to sleep so warm at night with such a heavy, stone cold heart.
Manifest destiny from the start, you were never one to make a clean cut.
You preferred to tear apart, the seams of this dance we called ours.
I'll go down with you, a spiraling future salutes us two.
As much as I'd love to turn around, it's time to face the ground.
What can I say? You're the source of this weight in the pit of my stomach.
Another broken promise turns to, we just can't break through it.
It's too bad I had such a heavy debt riding on this game.
Don't act like you don't know, you left me never to be the same.
You dance a blood red waltz, twirling in place you're burning down this,
Bridge I built, with my own hands.
And as the wind, it bites my face, I can feel and smell and taste,
The fields where we would lay, watching summers steal away.
But as I snap back to the present, I feel the pavement is gaining minutes,
And then I look up and see your face over the ledge.
I can see that time is such a dangerous thing, when you're head over heels spinning and twisting,
Every minute is a second and a second is eternity.
This is the end of me.
This is the end, this is the end, this is the end of me. (I clutch at my throat but I can hardly breathe)
I'm falling faster, falling faster, picking up speed. (Is this everything you wanted me to be?)
The sidewalk is beckoning, softly singing, calling up to me. (I'll fall on the asphalt and then you can be free)
But I want you to know that I didn't want this, I didn't want this, ending of my dream.
