we spent this year at sea we lived the ups and downs that come with putting trust in any living thing it took us this long to finally discover that our maps can only lead us to places we've already been i've always heard that the captain goes down with the ship but how do i know if i'm sinking too quick? i'm lost on an ocean she's beautiful but rougher than anything sometimes this world gets the best of me i think that i'm wearing thin i've never felt so alone having no one to guide me if this place is my home why is there nothing inside me? life moves on, with or without us it seems we can only hope to find the answers before we lose sight of what we seek
brick by brick you tore this down you lied and told me that the world was ending i should have known that you were just inventing any lie to keep me hooked, the promises and how you took everything from me i should have seen it coming it's like even after all this time, we grew apart now you and i act just like strangers but what's stranger is that i can't shake you it's not like i hate you i was given every opportunity i squandered every one on you and me if you had not been so cold, i'd still have life in these bones it's a shame that we're wasting away like night fades to day, we're wasting away
you've changed, i know i've changed too i'd be lying if i said that i've been better off, that i grew in time our hearts burn out the fire inside becomes cold and deprived and it hurts to be cared about words hurt, i know mine did too but there are no words to describe how much i wanted to hurt you you left me alone and scared unable to cope, because i was so broke by the feeling of despair so let me down easy you've let me down enough i know i promised to move on to move on is not that simple i tried my best to let it rest but if you insist that we can't be friends, this is how the story ends: two strangers, once lovers read cover to cover
this house is haunted by the ghosts of everyone i've ever let down some live in the closet but two are sleeping in my parents' room right now it always happens that the apple never falls far from the tree but once it's free, it's free i can't stay and disappoint anyone else it may be home but it's starting to feel like hell maybe i broke the backs of the people that carried me i could've carried myself i'll start planning my escape but maybe it's too late.
