Guilt makes a drive feel twice as long
One swift motion could end it all
But I'm just not that strong
So I'll go do
What I don't want to
God knows it'll hurt me almost as bad as it'll hurt you

To be honest
It's for the best
If not, I can handle it

Cause I've felt alone for so long
So there'd be nothing new
I've been longing to start over
What else can I do

So in the stairwell I broke your heart
And I couldn't falter as
Our two hands came apart
We were crying
As you asked me
"Were the 3 years and the memories all for nothing?"

And those words they fucking haunt me
Til I can't eat or sleep

Cause it's still so fresh in my head
I guess I need my space
I don't know what I'm looking for
But I can wait

It's not supposed to be easy
I can tell it won't be
Remember who's choice this was
And don't you dare play victim
When the pain comes
Cause it's bound to
Keep you up and eat at you
It's bound to make you think bad things when you've had a few

I tried to do what I thought was right
With both of us in mind
I didn't find what I was looking for
Maybe in time
