the times I remember are far more than embers of long lost nights in silent December when we'd sit there in our childish liturgy when the hand I was holding was the hand that was scolding me and I let go in the moment you were trembling to see if you would get up off the floor and I'm in love with the you I knew before and in my mind you inscribed every contour of thick disguise that encased your sorrows as you whispered, "forever I am yours" then drive I did when your words weren't so welcoming and I gave up as the sun was beckoning the sky to scream in colors from me you'd torn and I'm in love with the you I knew before and I don't know if I'll love you anymore soft and sweetly, too discreetly hide me from your loves anew come December I'll remember everything they never knew I'm in love with the you I knew before and I don't know if I'll love you anymore cause I'm in love with the you I knew before and I don't know if I'll love you anymore waste, don't waste my time tear your heart from mine save your energy for the next love you'll run away from the times I remember are far more then embers of long lost nights in silent December when we'd sit there in our childish liturgy

I can't get you off my mind today it's funny how we learn to say the things that push us far away from all we want and all we shouldn't need but you're all I want and everything I want to be and she said, "did you hear the sky is falling? and no one's come to save me from your face" and he said, "did you see the sun stop burning when it stepped outside and saw an angel fall from grace?" and some days there is nothing left to say so I sit and dream and make believe that you are not so far away from all I want and all that I should need now all I want is something I can't be and she said, "did you hear the sky is falling? and no one's come to save me from your face" and he said, "did you see the sun stop burning when it stepped outside and saw an angel fall from grace?" broken and crawling out a token of all your doubt chasing the fear within and fighting the tears without and she said, "can't you see the shame I hide? no, cause you're too wrapped up and tangled in your travesty of a life you say you want to leave behind and so you'll run away and leave you on my mind on my mind..." I can't get you off my mind today

don't ask me what my name is or I'll never cry again don't tell me what the day is or I may never let go again and if you feel the same as I do now would you wait another moment for me now? don't give away the truth yet just wait a little longer now cause someday we'll be in love and they'll wonder what could keep us apart cause someday I'll find the trust to let you hold this fragile heart cause someday I will wander your way but today I'll stay you wonder at my reason I wander in your eyes I'd tell you I'm not ready I'd tell you but I'd lie I'm letting go of what's behind me now so wait another moment for me now I'd give away the truth, love if I could tell you what it was cause someday we'll be in love and they'll wonder what could keep us apart cause someday I'll find the trust to let you hold this fragile heart cause someday I will wander your way wait, wait - love stay I've tried but is it too late? wait, wait - someday just not this time, no it's not the same can't you see I'm falling apart cause, lover, I don't know where you are but someday they won't keep us apart cause, lover, you'll have stolen my heart (wait, wait - love stay I've tried but is it too late? wait, wait - someday just not this time, no it's not the same wait, wait - love stay hold tight until I speak your name wait, wait - one more day and you're mine) but if you feel the same as I do now would you wait another moment for me now? don't give away the truth, love just wait a little longer cause someday we'll be in love and they'll wonder what could keep us apart cause someday I'll find the trust to let you hold this fragile heart cause someday I will wander your way but today I'll stay

wonder when it stops beating 'round the moments wonder whose the fault beating down the bushes was I all to blame? all I wanted was to be the rain running down your face if I have to change twenty years could all be gone today tell me when it hurts all the pulls and pushings beneath your skin I've found a memory worth eliding take back all my shame all I wanted was to be the dirt you walked on every day if I can be plain twenty years is a long, long time to throw away are you worth it? no, you - you're worth it? you can't be are you worth it, worth it? no, you - you're worth it. you're worth it? was I all to blame? all I wanted was one small glance to say it was ok if this is what it takes twenty years will all be gone today are you? you're worth it you're worth it

wait while the moment falls apart cause I'm still getting past this part your eyes will never look on mine except with secondary sight maybe we were right maybe I was wrong only time can tell, but time is gone so turn turn me upside down until I catch my breath spin me all around until there's nothing left but everything we were and everything that never can be again come on, love, and turn put back the pieces that you stole all but the center of my soul take back the words you try to hide cause the love you claim I've found impossible to find turn turn me upside down until I catch my breath spin me all around until there's nothing left but everything we were and everything that never can be again come on, love, and turn come on, love, and turn love, you've got another try but I'm still fighting for my life turn, turn me upside down until I catch my... spin me all around until there's nothing left but everything we were and everything that never can be again come on, love, and turn come on, love, and turn

these are the words I want to say: darling, I loved you, but it's not the same you waited far too long to see and now it's your own fault that we can never be I didn't ask you for your help I never begged to see you in my dreams and I would die before falling to my knees for you and love, here's your chance to be free from actuality it's a mistake it was a chance we'd take we bend and then we break this is the line for ever a day goes by that we're less than alive I just have to close my eyes to see your brilliant lies that twist and turn inside of me you're running me through with open arms but you had your chance and now it's my turn to move on it's a mistake it was a chance we'd take we bent and now we break this is the line for ever a day goes by that we're less than alive for days and nights I'd lie awake and feel your hand brush on my face and there I'd wait, but there you'd stay content in all your misplaced faith there's nothing I want more than to tear you from my heart with a fatal blow get out of my mind - you've lost your hold and there's nowhere for us to go but down again it's a mistake it was a chance we'd take we bent and now we break this is the line for never a day goes by that we're more than a lie it's a mistake this is a chance I'll take to save me from your face this is the line for ever a day goes by that we're less than alive

you waste the dawn cause you're wide awake but sleeping still inside I'm wasted now and too far gone to hold on to my pride what would it take for you to come here? what would it take for you to lose your fear to give into this life? what would it take for you to be here - just be here by my side? what would it take for this to be clear - that I would throw this life away if you would say you feel the same? I taste your breath from miles away keeping me alive just face the truth that this is not fake and forget all their lies what would it take for you to come here? what would it take for you to lose your fear to give into this life? what would it take for you to be here - just be here by my side? what would it take for this to be clear - that I would throw this life away if you would say you feel the same? you know that this isn't in your mind so don't give in now, love, please don't hide we're almost leaving them behind just take my hand and you'll know it's right
