I can't even count the ways
that I have tried to make this last forever
Some things are too hard to take
when we're so far away
You've got to see it's better
to say the things that you need to say

but you broke down, you broke down
You're not waiting for me

You tear the pictures off the wall
So they'll no longer call to you
As I wonder where you are
Cause God it's been so hard
Letting go love that we were never meant to lose
Every time you close your eyes
The images burn so bright
And you begin to cry
Cause God damn you're not alright
You can't take another night
You want that ordinary life

I guess we made some mistakes
But would you throw it all away
When we belong together forever and ever now
And you've gotta keep moving on
You've got to stay strong
You wrote that in your letters

but in between the lines
you broke down, you broke down
You can't keep waiting for me

You tear the pictures off the wall
So they'll no longer call to you
As I wonder where you are
Cause God it's been so hard
Letting go love that we were never meant to lose
Every time you close your eyes
The images burn so bright
And you begin to cry
Cause God damn you're not alright
You can't take another night
You want that ordinary life, life
Goddamn, you're not alright
You can't take another night

And I can't even count the ways
that I have tried to make this last forever

You tear the pictures off the wall
So they'll no longer call to you
As I wonder where you are
Cause God it's been so hard
Letting go love that we were never meant to lose
Every time you close your eyes
The images burn so bright
And you begin to cry
Cause God damn you're not alright
You can't take another night
You want that ordinary life, life
God damn, you're not alright
You can't take another night
No, no, you want that ordinary life
You want that ordinary life
