don't you dare tell me i am the reason we are here
i spend enough sleepless nights in this bed
to know this isn't just all in my head.

d-d-d-don't you say
that i'm ruining what we've made
we know enough to know we're both to blame
it's like you're leaving but you don't know the way
so i say..

i can't believe myself
i'm wishing to be anyone else
and i'm feeling like all this hell might change something good
in the end

and i, oh i just can't find a reason why
why you intentionally say goodbye
if this mess were up to me, we'd see eye-to-eye
but you get bored and run from the honest life
sometimes it's where you're making me lose my mind
so i'll keep singing...

i can't believe myself
i'm wishing to be anyone else
and i'm feeling like all this hell might change something good
in the end...

it was the look on your face when i called out your name
it was the days waiting for you alone in the rain
take me back to the top when i wish you could stay
now i'm here
it's the first step where i watch you fade away

i can't believe myself
i'm wishing to be anyone else
and i'm feeling like all this hell might change something good
in the end

..oh my god, this town, it feels like a headache...
..you were a safe bet.. a safe bet..
..i'm falling in and out of love.. finally stopping what we were made of..

    General Commentohh i love this song
    i think the question mark is "waiting for you ..."
    and i like how it incorporates clouds, safe bet, and books&letters.

    General Commentah, i love the morning light..they'll be big soon enough, i just hope their music stays as good

    this is probably my favorite song about them..this song is so easy to identify with, whether it be with a friend or romantic other.

    General Commenti think it's "shape something good", not change something good.

    but i love this song. :]

    General CommentDitto about the "shape" not "change".

    And I think it's "Sometimes I swear you're making me lose my mind" not "it's where".

    General CommentThe correct lyrics are "Don’t you dare tell me I am the reason we are here
    I spend enough sleepless nights in this bed
    To know this isn't just all in my head.

    D-d-d-don't you say
    That I’m ruining what we've made
    We know enough to know we're both to blame
    It’s like you're leaving but you don't know the way
    So I say..

    I can't believe myself
    I’m wishing to be anyone else
    And I’m feeling like all this hell might shape something good
    In the end

    And I, oh I just can't find a reason why
    Why you intentionally say goodbye
    If this mess were up to me, we'd see eye-to-eye
    But you get bored and run from the honest life
    Sometimes I swear you're making me lose my mind
    So I’ll keep singing...

    I can't believe myself
    I’m wishing to be anyone else
    And I’m feeling like all this hell might shape something good
    In the end... (Ahhh)


    It was the look on your face when I called out your name
    It was the days waiting for you alone in the rain
    Take me back to the top when I wish you could stay
    Now I’m here it's your first step where I watch you fade away

    I can't believe myself
    I’m wishing to be anyone else
    And I’m feeling like all this hell might shape something good
    In the end

    (..Oh my god, this town, it feels like a headache...
    ..I thought you were a safe bet... a safe bet…
    …I’m falling in and out of love... finally stopping what we were made of..)

    I’m falling in and out of love, finally stopping what we were made of
