this, was a dark time




you came right back to weep, after I never thought we'd speak again
but things are breaking and now everything's breaking
you say we're better off to be in a good light with the company we keep,
but things break then everything changes...

and I wish I would've known better than to let you hold my heart
but that night we spent, all our clouded judgement, I just felt so sure

but now I'm awake and I can tell, I've made some mistakes based on how I felt, things are breaking and my body's still shaking
you left me caught in a bitter place my fears wont let me save my face
these things that break well i've lost all patience for them

and I wish I would've known better than to listen when you say,
"it'll all work out, I have no doubt, there ain't no one, could replace you."

But now I know that isn't true, I know you and I will never do those plans we made and all the ones we hadn't yet
Still i think you will always be in search of truth through tragedy
and when you find it maybe I'll be waiting

and I'll hold my breath
till that light shines in and I welcome
this slow death
