I've finally reached a conclusion
I just wore off like an old coat of paint
On a car, parked on the street
Left out in the rain
I eroded and began to decay
I'm a knot that started to fray
All this time I was keeping us together
So strongly tethered and then I gave way

Split open this fault line
And find every fault of mine
What used to be enough
Is just scraping the surface
But I won't let you give up
Cause I still have a purpose

I finally know what happened
You just outgrew me like a pair of jeans
With holes in the knees
And split-end inseams
As they faded so did we
I'm an old and dying tree
Whose sweet fruit suddenly turned sour
And left you with nothing to eat

Chorus

I'm your friday night football games
You forget about when you graduate
I'm the fairground fortune teller
Who will seal my own fate
I'm the 18th candle you blew out on your birthday
I'm the card you read, and keep for a week
Then unconsciously throw away
I'm the missing piece of you
You'll die trying to replace

Cause I'm nothing more than a rainbow, you forgot about long after the rain

Chorus

As the year changes seasons
Try to find every reason
Why I wasn't enough
It's not worth saving face
I'm the missing piece of you
You'll die trying to replace
