When the daylight comes
Do you feel it?
Leave your bag of bones
Underneath your bed
Everything is as
It should be
I’m leaving now
As I should be

No way, no way
No we’re never gonna talk about it
No way, no way
No we’re never gonna speak again
No way, no way
No we’re never gonna talk about it
No way, no way

When the night descends
Are you sleeping?
All the things you’ve done
Come to haunt you
All that we can do
Is smile
It would be like this
For a while

No way, no way
No we’re never gonna talk about it
No way, no way
No we’re never gonna speak again
No way, no way
No we’re never gonna talk about it
No way, no way

I’m not sad, really
All this means, losing
Letting go
Don’t look out
No way, no way, no way

All of this is tearing us apart
I don’t know where us or this start
All of this is tearing us apart
I don’t know where us or this start

If there’s anyone near when we collide
We throw them in the middle, they can pick sides

As the plans turn into compromise
The promises all turn to lies
The spite builds up and I can’t get through
Passive me, aggressive you
I know I nag, I moan, I know
But with a plan like this it’s way too slow
In the time it took to get this bad
I could have made this work but all I had
Was the hope that pieces would take shape
And we could watch them all fall into place

All of this is tearing us apart
I don’t know where us or this start
All of this is tearing us apart
I don’t know where us or this start

Yeah we’re locked up in ideas
We like to label everything
Well I’m just gonna do here what I gotta do here
‘Cause I gotta keep myself free
You’re ducking and moving just to hide your bruising from all your enemies
And I’m in the crossfire dodging bullets from you expectancies

We’ve got nothing to lose
You better run and hide
Yeah you’ve crossed the line
I’ve got a knife behind my back, just sayin’
We’ve got nothing to prove
Your social guides give you swollen eyes
But what I’ve got can’t be bought so you can just call it what you want

I said just call it what you want

You’ve taken your words and you take your judgments
And stick them onto everything
If it don’t conform to what you were born into
Then you run the other way
You say, “Now, what’s your style and who do you listen to?” Who cares?
Well that rat race ladder-climbing fake-face smile’s got nothing on me

We’ve got nothing to lose
You better run and hide
Yeah you’ve crossed the line
I’ve got a knife behind my back, just sayin’
We’ve got nothing to prove
Your social guides give you swollen eyes
But what I’ve got can’t be bought so you can just call it what you want

I said just call it what you want

i never loved nobody fully
always one foot on the ground
and by protecting my heart truly
i got lost in the sounds
i hear in my mind
all these voices
i hear in my mind
all these words
i hear in mind
all this music
and it breaks my heart

it breaks my heart

suppose i never ever met you
suppose we never fell in love
suppose i never ever let you
kiss me so sweet and so soft
suppose i never ever saw you
suppose you never ever called
suppose i kept on singing love songs
just to break my own fall

just to break my fall

all my friends say
that of course it’s
gonna get better
