dear you.

How can I decide what’s right?
The truth is hiding in your eyes.
And it’s hanging on your tongue
Just boiling in my blood
Do you see what we’ve done?
We’re gonna make such fools of ourselves.

Well what’s the problem?
You’ve got a lot of nerves
I’m not so naïve, my sorry eyes can see--
The way you fight shy of almost everything.
Well if you give up, you’ll get what you deserve.
So what do you think I would say?
“No, you can’t runaway. No you can’t runaway”?
You wouldn’t.
I never wanted to say this.
You never wanted to stay.


I’ve got a lot to say to you.
Yea I’ve got a lot to say.

Gimme attention, I need it now.
Too much distance to measure it out, out loud.

... And if you’re listening, I miss you. And if you hear me now I need you. Where did you go? Cause you’re not gone. The wires were cut and I’m alone.
Do you ever want me? Do you ever need me? I know that you left before goodbye.
And it’s okay, there’s always another day.

I’m not going, cause I’ve been waiting for the miracle, so I’m not leaving.

But I don’t see you around anymore.
Not even a trace of you.
And I’m getting bored waiting round for you.
We’re not getting any younger and I won’t look back—cause there’s no use, it’s time to move forward.
I’m feeling no sympathy. You lived inside a cave. You’re barely get by the rest of us—you’re trying.
There’s no need to apologize, I’ve no time for feeling sorry.
Well I tried not to think of what might happen. When your reality--it finally cuts through.
Well, as for me, I got out and I’m on the road. The worst part is that this, this could be you.
You know it too, you can’t run from your shame. You’re not getting any younger. Time keeps passing by, but you waited awake. It’s time to roll over.
And all the best lies--they are told with fingers tied, so cross them tight.

Won’t you promise me tonight? 
If it’s the last thing you do,

You’ll get out.

*(actually, I have choices.)
I can’t excite you anymore. You treat me just like another stranger.
Well, it’s nice to meet you sir, I guess I’ll go. I best be on my way out.
Ignorance is you best friend.
(but I don't.)*

And you ran away.
Is this what you had waited for? Just to be alone?
You never said this wasn’t what you wanted, was it? 
Was it?
This isn’t what you wanted.
Remember how, 
Cause I know that we won’t forget it all.


...So this is how it goes.
Well I, I would have never known. And if it ends today, well,
I'll still say that you shine brighter than anyone.
Now I think we're taking this too far--don't you know that it's not this hard?
Well it's not this hard.
But if you take what's yours and I take mine, must we go there? Please not this time.
No, not this time.

Well (MAY BE) this is not your fault.
But if I'm without you, then I will feel so small.
And if you have to go,
... always know that you shine brighter than anyone does.

If you run away now,
Will you come back around?
And if you ran away,
I'd still wave goodbye
Watching you shine bright.
  And I'll wave goodbye tonight.
