I had this feeling that this was gonna be easy
I had a notion, I'd just walk in and let you in on my feelings
And you could be a part of what was about to fall apart
This kingdom we had built up from the ground
Built streetlights so we could work both day and night
"Let's get this thing up"...
And now it's all about to fall down
I'm just here to make sure you get out of the way

I'll play you the most beautiful postlude
I can construct, as you pack up and exit
Something soft, sweet progressing to bitter
Cause you're a sucker for anything acoustic
Something with chords that make you hold your breath

I had this feeling I could just move on
Move outward and upward once I knew you were gone
You wouldn't be a part, of this brand new start
Drive past the street signs we erected to direct ourselves
How to get through each other's moods
But I got sick of predicting your every move
You asked "Can you blame me?"
Well, of course not
But even atoms the building blocks of life break up

But I'll play you the most emotional tune
If I can muster up the strength to sing to you
Something heartfelt, but I'll keep it simple
We made a mess making things more complex than we had to
I'll orchestrate you holding your breath

Well can I blame you? Of course not
But even atoms the building blocks of life break up
