It feels like looking in from the outside
and if you squint right, things look like they’re alright
but oh how wrong we were
we never thought it could get worse

And I tried to look ahead
I would have followed you anywhere anyway
blind to the signs
And oh I guess should have known
I got caught ignoring all the detours
that were holding us back (and forth)

And sometimes you get the instant reply
and all the while you miss the real meaning
but oh how wrong we were
we never saw it getting worse.

    General Commentthis song is amazing, lyrics and just the sound of it. Its ovbiously about a relationship that's doomed and how the two couldn't see the signs that the relationship was doomed cause they were blinded by love. the ending just brings its all together too, kind of a destructive beauty, can't describe it, just amazing
