This is How We Left It - CD quality 44​​​​​.​​​​​1kHz​​​​​/​​​​​16 bit

by Echolyn



I would wait for you if you were and I was.
Would you wait for me if I wasn’t and you were?
I knew to hesitate would only make it worse.
But my tongue was tied to the rope around my neck.

By the look she gave she was more than hurt.
She would wait for you if you were more around.
Not like a paper-cut but more like a bear.
You never tried, you never reached out to her.
The devastation was a sight to behold.
And now you stand across and ocean.
I couldn’t look away till the brilliance was complete.

It’s all blown up and way out.
Nothing could be farther from.
More about what’s been twisted.
This is how we left it.

I would wait for you if you were and I was I wouldn’t hesitate.
By the look she gave it wasn’t meant to hurt it meant to devastate.
In the end it’s who we are.
In the end it’s what we are.

Holding onto stones for the morning after.
The words we meant to cripple should never have been thought.
Could we hold our breath long enough to forget
All the things we’ve said, the bones the bricks we’ve bled?
Someday, maybe then.
