lyrics

You were so quick to smile
So fast to be kind
You said I could reveal what I head to hide
With my hands on the window
And my heels in the grass
Tapping patterns
And moving to make you laugh

And then you left, you said you never would
And after this, I swear I’m gone for good
Because I can’t seem, to let go like I should
You don’t want this, to be haunted

I could tell you I’m better
That I learned from the time
I could always tell you
Anything except a lie

People always tell me that it’s wrong to live alone
But people are the reason that I’m always on my own
I want to show you who I am but there’s nothing to see
Just a shadow of a doubt of who I’m trying to be
I let it guide my hands to the furthest place
Away from all these haunted days

Why would anyone wait for me?
