moving slow like the smoke from your cigarette
every step closer's a step that we both will regret
keeping a tally but who could keep track
your overreacting is taking me back
to a time when our lives aligned

holding onto the phone, holding onto this glass
holding onto the memory of what didn't last
waiting for better words, they'll never come
so dry your eyes, it's better, now it's done

keep a tight grip like a child holding onto a swingset
waiting and hoping to find what i can't figure out yet
please don't unless this is something you need
another nightmare instead of a dream
better left alone

holding onto the phone, holding onto this glass
holding onto the memory of what didn't last
waiting for better words, they'll never come
so dry your eyes...

holding onto the phone, holding onto this glass
holding onto the memory of what didn't last
waiting for better words, they'll never come
so dry your eyes, it's better, now it's done

i never lost so much
i never lost so much
i never lost so much

holding onto the phone, holding onto this glass
holding onto the memory of what didn't last
waiting for better words, they'll never come
so dry your eyes...

holding onto the phone, holding onto this glass
holding onto the memory of what didn't last
waiting for better words, they'll never come
so dry your eyes, it's better, now it's done

    General Commentthis song is actually called "Now That It's Done", if the person who posted the lyrics would change the title, that would be great...but yeah, this song is awesome live by the way and michelle is so unbelieveably beautiful

    General Commentactually, i just saw straylight perform last night (5/6) and talked to michelle after the show, and she said there is no name for the song yet. she said that there are a few songs that they havent come up with names for yet. the only ones with real names are the 6 on their website

    General CommentIt's "Now It's Done." Since Michelle apparently writes her songs, while John writes his, I'm going to say this is a relationship song. It could be about Adam, but it could be about pretty much any relationship. I think, anyway.

    General CommentThis song probably is a relationship song but it is not about Adam. John said this song was written by Michelle before the double split (TBS and Adam and Michelle). I think its funny how John doesnt ever talk bout Adam and Adam about John in interviews they change the subject ASAP
