i didn't hear it shut behind me. just kept on walking through the door and to my car. never felt so far.

steam was rising from the engine. i tried to wipe my face from
all the rain. and all of the pain.

we hadn't seen the sun for days and the nights were growing heavy
like a long goodbye...when i saw you start to cry.

saw everything around us changing. i guess we didn't see us changing at the same time. so i had to cross the line.

nothing lasts forever.
we still stayed together.
it won't change things whether
or not i stay.

that's why i gotta go. i can't stay and wait.
not when we both know that nothing stays the same.
even seasons change and some things just can't last.
and i guess in our case, autumn came too fast.

that night i drove around in circles, just like the memories recycling through my head. lying in my bed.

the streets invaded by september, i couldn't help but think about
our spring's gone past, and how i'd like to have them back.

but familiar roads before me continued reinforcing what we
know is true. and what i had to do.

because the longer we take trying, the closer that we come to dying in illusions and of lies. and i don't want to die.

been so far for so long.
can't control what went wrong.
determined to be strong
enough to leave.

so, babe, i gotta go. i can't stay and wait.
not when we both know that nothing stays the same.
even seasons change and some things just can't last.
and i guess in our case, autumn came too...

fast approaching winter fear.
and empty cold without you here,
but that's not enough to still ignore
that we don't love each other...anymore.
