lyrics

you and i are broken.
time's passed by, but the wound's still open.
we were young, and foolish.
but i can't wait around for you to change your mind.

this will be the last song that i write for you.
this will be our opus.
(you're cold and hollowed out
like an angel in the snow;
i think it's time i let you go)

we, both, got what we wanted;
you married someone else, and i got you to be honest.
i am still. i am still motionless.
but it's time that i gave someone else the chance to break my heart.

(i'm losing definition
like a shadow in the shade;
i think it's time i let your memory fade)

some things need to stay broken
like some things need to catch fire.
well, i've got a pocket full of tinder,
but i'm not sure where i should start.

i don't know if you have changed,
but i am confident that i am different now.

...and just as things start to get repetitive
you stop.

(it's been a couple years
by now it's getting pretty old;
i think it's time i let your pedestal fall)
