lyrics

Time is gone, gone, gone
Why you gotta linger so long
Life moves on, on, on
Why's the right thing still wrong

(Denial...Survival)

I knew I had one left to write about you
Right about now there's a cloud I knew was alright to write through
Fight through my instinct to spite you
Grounded as I rise like kites do
I'm a human with an ego
But the words that I'm saying say more about me, though
This feels like an after buzzer free throw
In a game nobody came to see, no
If winning is control, we all lose when the wind blows
The wind blew, and you flew, 'cause your wings know
That was after you were free, though
Not mine, not his, only we know

You landed when you fell day after day
You came to call, I wanted you to stay
I wanted to get real, you wanted to play
I wouldn't face it when you'd pull away

You wouldn't face me when you said it's over
Hard to gain closure when you wouldn't go there
So we left it nowhere
Suspended, pretending like we don't care
Trying to kill it by staying quiet
When souls are knotted, space and time untie it
Wish upon a star then deny it
When you sell it short, I can't buy it

I still checked your feed, while you're saying you're not checking mine
That never cashed, my memory bank needs a check signed
Cover up like the scarf around your neck line
And like those that we kept blind
Step behind a wall, but there's cracks there
Open windows, never doors when you need air
To be fair, it's alright to be scared
Another reason I was wishing I could be there


Wanted to be there, but he's there
It's harder to look than it is to close the book
Every time you win, you lose again
But it's gonna be alright...maybe in the next life
(short love, goodbye...)
