Let me lie next to you tonight
We can sit and watch the sunset
Just like the day we first met
Not knowing this could be our last
Just close your eyes and try to breathe
You've held your breath for too long
Lets pretend that this is perfect
And that we've got nothing left to lose
Well, we've got nothing left to lose

Let me paint you this picture
I'll try to make it perfect
Don't say that 'it's the thought that counts'
Because the shades of gray
Say you're leaving anyway

Let me lead you to the water
Where we can watch the waves
As they crash down the shore
Crashing like the hopes we used to have
Well, I haven't given up just yet
Close your eyes and pray for another sunset
Let me write one last letter
Since I know I'll never say the words
I'll never say the words

Let me paint you a picture
I know it wont be perfect
Dont say that 'it's the thought that counts'
Because the shades of gray
Say you're leaving anyway

Let me lead you down to the pier
We'll lay under the docks
We'll do what we can do avoid the clocks
Spending every second in eachothers arms
We're making up for lost time
Well, I wont lose you this time
Let me whisper 'I love you'
While we lay in the moonlight
Your tears are such a bitter reminder

Let me paint you a picture
I know it wont be perfect
Dont say that 'it's the thought that counts'
Because the shades of gray
Say your leaving anyway

Let me write out this anthem
To the girl who held my heart ransom
But Stockholm Syndrome got the best of me
Let me write out this anthem
To the girl who held my heart ransom
But Stockholm Syndrome got the best of me

Let me paint you a picture
I know it wont be perfect
Dont say that 'its the thought that counts'
Because the shades of gray
Say your leaving anyway
Let me whisper 'I love you'
As we lay underneath the moonlight
Your tears are such a bitter reminder
Your tears are such a bitter reminder
You're such a bitter reminder
That the shades of gray
Say your leaving anyway...
