it's amazing what a light I knew
it's amazing what a light I knew
and if you think it's all her fault
that just isn't true

I didn't know that I could be so cold
I didn't know that I would ever grow
and now I'm older than I've ever known
the lack of love in my life

I used to try to crush everything
outside of what directly spoke to me
now it's not cute, this inconsistency
just a lack of love plain in sight

it's amazing what a light I knew
it's amazing what a light I knew
and if you think it's all her fault
that just isn't true

I used to say I gave her everything
but then I realized it was selfishly
you know I do just almost anything
to bring her eyes back to mine

I hate so deeply the bridge burner fame
but still I bark out like a dog on a chain
when I think of all the hearts I've left in my way
mom and dad you made a big mistake

it's amazing what a light I knew
it's amazing what a light I knew
and if you think it's all her fault
that just isn't true

so here's a song, I'll call it Finishing
please don't believe I need your sympathy
when all and all the problems rest on me
hate to be any doubt

it's amazing what a light I knew
it's amazing what a light I knew
and if you think it's all her fault
that just isn't true

    General CommentThis song is about maturing and trying to cope with the mistake of letting someone go. Ben uses such a wonderful imagery here-"its amazing what a light i knew"- light can refrence to a number of things-wisdon-purity-brilliance- etc. This song illustrates using the word light- just how much how wonderful she was and how much she meant to him.
