You wonder why I kept my distance on those lonely summer nights by the lakeside.
Everything seemed so fine.
Lost in a haze of what is real and what is fake. Always myself to blame.
Like make believe. A paradox between points "A" and "B".
I've been left hanging here holding on to every last word (you said).
A handful of promises I'll never keep.
A gust of wind fills my lungs.
With every breath I feel your heart beating close to mine.
This all may be for the worst, but I've never felt better.
The words you say will never carry the weight on your back as you clench your teeth.
With every step I take I know this is what I need.
