lyrics

I passed your exit too many times, wasn't in it for the ride.
I needed something more to stay...
Don't mistake it for sympathy, grasping more than I can see.
De-clawed and reeling from the blows..

Not enough to figure out I'm better off alone
But I can't get you out of my head
Draw the curtains for today, I'll sleep it off again
What's left of my best attempt to keep the rest of all this mess

I can't steel my own resolve and let the last to years dissolve
into the past just like a dream
Just don't pull the sheets away and leave me naked on display
Just thinking of what might have been...

Not enough to figure out I'm better off alone
But I can't get you out of my head
Draw the curtains for today, I'll sleep it off again
What's left of my best attempt to keep the rest of all this mess

I don't want to leave but I can't stay
I don't want to turn and walk away
I just can't stand to follow you around
I'd rather sit back than fall back down
