Color the dark past
(with bright imagery)
Fill blank lines with white lies
stop to think then covers up my memories. (My memories)
Fill blank lines with white lies
stop to think then covers up.

It’s the distance we need (to erase and to start clean)
It’s the distance we need (to forget)
These miles give me the time to think of the differences we make.
With you I’ll always be missing.
(the pieces of me you break.)
Now that I hear my heart clearly.
(The words I couldn’t say)
speak through my heart now that I’ve changed.
(you can see, you can see)
all the lies that hide my
(you could see inside)
all the lies hide behind my eyes.

Bring back night to day (feel my heartbeat)
To erase the pain (of my memories)
When the sunset fades, the moonlight tears my body
til morning rays bring me to a better place.

It’s the distance we need
It’s the distance we need (to forget)
These miles give me the time to think of the differences we make.
With you I’ll always be missing.
(The pieces of me you break.)
Now that I hear my heart clearly.
(The words I couldn’t say)
speak through my heart now that I’ve changed.
(you can see, you can see)
all the lies that hide my
(you could see inside)
all the lies hide behind my eyes.

Let it go, pull the weight off my shoulders
lets hope for a new beginning.
Let it go, pull the weight off my shoulders
lets hope for a new beginning.
We’ll set our feelings aside and forget what we’ve said
there’s not enough time to hide behind these eyes of regret.

    General CommentThis is my fave ESTK song. I can't believe theres no comments on it yet!

    I really think this song is about being with someone when you don't really love them the way you might think you do.

    Like 'Fill blank lines with white lies
    stop to think then covers up.' means that someone is just saying what they think the other person wants to hear because they have no idea how they actually feel.

    Or 'It’s the distance we need (to erase and to start clean)
    It’s the distance we need (to forget)

    General Comment^^ my whole comment isn't showing:S. In short, the rest of it said that I think the song is about two friends who thought they both felt more and decided to try a relationship, but then realized that one or both of them didn't feel that way, and that they're now just trying to get back to normal.

    I dunno, could be wrong hehe.
