I told myself, i've got to shake this jealous thing
It's the last thing i need
I told myself, drop this anti-trust act
It is so self defeating (and not worth repeating)
And i watched your whisper turn into a mountain of a lie
There was always someone waiting in the wings
We were something that i am not...

I am falling, i am failing
Sometimes loss outweighs gain
I am falling, i am failing
This kidding you is killing me

Don't hold it to coincidence that our paths don't cross anymore
I am drowning in an ocean of thoughts and i can't spill out a single word These day the best i can do is a simple smile across crowded rooms
You always swore you could never take him back...i didn't think that Never could come so fast
I took you out on everyone.

I am falling, i am failing
Sometimes loss outweighs gain
I am falling, i am failing
This kidding you is killing me...

    General Commentit refers to that feeling you get when you see someone that you used to be close to and now have nothing left to say to them. i held, and probably still hold alot of resentment towards someone i used to be in a relationship with...we were really close for a long time, and now it's like we have nothing left to say to each other...so we just fake smile or say hi in passing. - filmmaker
