Hope this means as much to you as it does to me.


Empty space.
All of the people that
you let take my place
I can feel you leave
with every breath I take.
oh, I wish you'd stay,
but I know I've changed.
and it's best this way.

well don't you remember?
we were gonna get married.
we were gonna be happy.

but you fell, and I landed.
I know I promised forever,
but do you think it could wait?

you said, "I love you but you think too loud.
and I'd love to but it hurts me to hang around."
I'm shallow and selfish,
and you're patient and your selfless.
and I won't blame you,
I won't dare to.
"I love you, but you think too loud."

and I'd love to be
every bit every piece of what you need.
but my heart won't lend that
part of me.
I said, "take your time, step away."
I'll swear I'll love you all the same.
but I never thought you'd listen,
till I felt the bed grow cold.

don't you remember?
we were gonna get married,
but we forgot to be happy

and you fell, and I landed.
I know you promised forever,
but those were far better days.

we were careless, we were only fooling ourselves.
we're well versed, self learned at running like hell.
I hope you still love me, is that fucked up to say?
I'm happy that you're happy but I'm hurting either way.
(only always)
