How did we get to this place?
In the beginning, things were so damn easy
It seemed that everything I am
Was what you wanted

As we grew into our skin
Mine got thicker as yours was wearing thin
Sinking about the boats you missed, the lips unkissed
What might have been

If you can't keep on believing
If you don't want me tonight
Let me know so I can cut the ties that bind.
If you can't feel my heart beating
Then I must be dead inside
So let's realize that it's time to let this die
Time to let this die

We've built a beautiful lie
That any weaker soul cannot survive
It's hard to find a reason to remain here.
'Cause our vacations only get you so far
Then they lead you to a darker space
Where love is what you feel no longer
We are no fear, we're so much stronger.

If you can't keep on believing
If you don't want me tonight
Let me know so I can cut the ties that bind.
If you can't see that I'm bleeding
Then my veins are running dry
So let's realize that it's time to let this die
Time to let this die

Still can't find a reason
If you got no tears to cry
Then let's realize that it's time to let this die

If you can't keep on believing
If you don't want me tonight
Let me know so I can cut the ties that bind.
If you can't feel my heart beating
Then I must be dead inside
So let's realize that it's time to let this die
Time to let this die

    General Commenti cant believe this hasnt been commented.
    the lyrics are flat out.
    girl and boy are dating, they seem to be perfect for eachother.
    they grew up. the girl isnt so sure about the relationship anymore. he just wants to know what she wants. he's willing to cut it off if thats what she wants, he doesnt want to live a beautiful lie. he's all for letting go.
