You wish you could get your hands around my throat
Laughing as I choke
As I try to breathe your scent
Gasping for air a million miles away
What could I do to make you change
Somewhere deep inside I know that you still care
Or maybe that part of you just isn't there
My eyes are blurry and out of focus
Your face is a distortion of what it used to be
Remember what we used to be?
Now I don't know who you are
It's like you never even knew me

And every time we fought
It would tear us farther apart
Exchanging words across the room
The pain, the anger came too soon
Tension arose, we'd put on our clothes
Pretend we'd never speak again
But now we're not pretending
This is what we used to be
Now this is our ending

So say goodbye and walk right by
Ignore the eyes that burn through you
And laugh with your friends
I'll just pretend you're someone I never knew
As he holds you in a tight embrace
My hands fly up to shield my face
It feels like I've been hit by a ton of bricks
Seeing you with him is just like staring into a solar eclipse

And every time we fought
It would tear us farther apart
Exchanging words across the room
The pain, the anger came too soon
Tension arose, we'd put on our clothes
Pretend we'd never speak again
But now we're not pretending
This is what we used to be
Now this is our ending

Exchanging looks across the room
I can't sense anything but the smell of your perfume
Drying on my clothes I'll never wash again
Because I'm burning them
Because I'm burning them

And every time we fought
It would tear us farther apart
Exchanging words across the room
The pain, the anger came too soon
Tension arose, we'd put on our clothes
Pretend we'd never speak again
But now we're not pretending
This is what we used to be
Now this is our ending

And every time we fought
It would tear us farther apart
Exchanging words across the room
The pain, the anger came too soon
Tension arose, we'd put on our clothes
Pretend we'd never speak again
But now we're not pretending
This is what we used to be
Now this is our ending
