lyrics

Do I look ready?
I ask and you ignore
You still looked unsteady
Like the boat we tied to shore

Pella looked over the bottle
She looked weaker than before
She said “I thought it’d kill the nerves
But know I just feel out of sorts”

Someone else came along
They’re not you but they were hear at the right time
I know it seems wrong
But you were gone and I didn’t know why

Someone else will burn this down
If we leave it standing
We are always in between
Believing and pretending

Can you hear the words that I’m sending?
Can you feel the wounds that life’s not mending?

Someone else came along
They’re not you but they were hear at the right time
I know it seems wrong
But you were gone and I didn’t know why

(Lyrics by James McCurley)
