It took some trust, on your part
To say the things you need, to say the things you need
And I won’t say, anything that I can’t take back
That I can’t take back

Cause I’m a fake
And I can’t do this anymore

It’s not the first time that I’ve heard this
It’s nothing new and I might regret it
There’s no words to speak to explain this
So just be patient and I’ll make this painless
I tried to tell you but you never quite got it
Kept pushing forward and you knew it needed to stop
It grows harder and harder to breathe

Just a few months and you’re way too close
And I’m taken back, I take two steps back
Because your words, they’re just way too real
And I won’t regret, any words I’ve said

Cause I’m a fake
And I‘ve led you on for way too long


It’s just the
It’s nothing new
And its not worth sinning
But it was
Bad timing
On your part
Kept pushing
It grows harder and harder to breathe

    General CommentAmazing, beautifully written song. Obviously Holden Caulfield is the main character from The Catcher In the Rye. This song parallels him the book he is so focused on pointing out everyone's flaws and fakeness, yet he himself turns out to be the most fake of them all.

    It seems in this song he's trying to end a relationship by basically saying "I never wanted this in the first place." But really what it was was that he didn't do anything to prevent it from getting that far (the line "cause i'm a fake and i've led you on for way too long"). He blames it on the other person, yet it was just as much his fault.

    I don't know, just my opinion. I'm sure there's more to it then that but I don't feel like writing anymore :/
