lyrics

How could it be that when I find a piece of you it all just falls beneath my feet?
On the ground, we walk a fine line.
Convictions are compromised, disguised in the black and white.
On the ground, walk a fine line.

Two poems and a prayer can't coincide with disappointment in myself, in the way you held on, in the past three years.

I'm so sick of holding on to memories when I can't sleep, cause dreaming only haunts me.
I'm counting days and waiting for a happy ending.
When all words fade, I'll write another song about it.

How could I breathe right at the time for you to take flight, when we said our last goodbyes, when you could barely walk a straight line?
But how could I expect any more from you?
I need to find a way to make this right.

I'm so sick of holding on to memories when I can't sleep, cause dreaming only haunts me.
I'm counting days and waiting for a happy ending.
When all words fade, I'll write another song about it.

I grew up under water praying for the air to get to me
I grew up under water praying for the air

I'm so sick of holding on to memories when I can't sleep, cause dreaming only haunts me.
I'm counting days and waiting for a happy ending.
When all words fade, I'll write another song about it.
