Making up for this lost time
Is taking it's toll
I've started to unwind
I'm tethered stronger than you'd ever believe
But I'm still coming apart at the seams

So save me
I need you right on key
Right here in present tense
Before this ferments
I've seen the future
And the past doesn't make sense

Comebacks for everything I ask
So defensively
Whisper a scream (and gasp)
You'll rewrite every single word I say
Before this pen even hits the page

But that's ok
I never promised you I'd stay
And even if I had
I'm sure you would've missed it
No matter how bad
You want it, you resist it

You were just 'ok'
As an un-numbered page
In this unfinished play
We've been acting out so long
It's the price I pay for glory
But will I ever end this story
You know love is just a play
We act out every day
But all I've known all along (is...)
There's no right way to be wrong

We are all actors
And love's just a play
There's no audience
Cause we're all onstage

We are all actors
And love's just a play
We're not professionals
But we do this every day
