lyrics

don’t blink
i see you and me
alone at last
room to breathe

and if it’s
a dream
let me have this one
don’t you wake me up
when morning comes
you’ll be

gone
and i’ll be on my own again
hold my breath
you hold the door and then
change your mind
you let me slip
‘til you can’t look back
there’s nothing left

but goodbye
you know how hard we tried
goodbye
to you and i
and my perfect life

now don’t speak
i’ve heard all you’ll say
and i deserved much more
but that’s ok

if this is all we’ll be
we’ll be a waste of time
so you go back to her
and leave me here
high and dry

my eyes can’t find the moon
but our empty sky will find me soon
and i’ll cry your name
‘til i forget
this isn’t how the world should end
goodbye
you know how hard we tried
goodbye
to you and i
and my perfect

life keeps going
and we don’t own nothing
and if i’d known what was happening
i’d have told you everything

but now you’re
gone
and i’ll be on my own again
close that door
another opens
the only sound our lonely sigh
is this how we learn to say
goodbye
goodbye

goodbye
i know how hard we tried
goodbye
to you and i
and my perfect
life keeps going
we don’t own nothing
goodbye
to you and i
and my perfect life

now don’t blink
i see you and me
