Well baby, I thought it just got easier
Til that guilt fades out into a ghost under their beds
But that empty heat won’t let you sleep
So you’ve been trying to burn it out
But you still can’t seem to stop freezing
And this time you’re shaking next to me

But baby, it just dulls the pain
Of that constant ache that you can’t explain
There’s still that fear that you won’t name
There’s still that truth that you can’t face
So you can’t burn it out
You’ll never burn it out
Yeah, you can’t burn it out
Cuz there’s nothing there

Oh, it was never there

It’s just your clothes torn on the floor at two a.m.
And you start to feel sick when you finally see it
Yeah, you can leave, but you never tried
And you say, baby, I’ve come back to you again
Don’t you wanna ask where I’ve been?

Baby, no, I don’t
Baby, no, I don’t
It’s too late to be tragic
It’s just another hole in your fabric
So baby, no, I don’t
Baby, no, I don’t
I just know you’re an escape artist now
So I’ll never need to know how

But baby, it just dulls the pain
Of that constant ache that you can’t explain
There’s still that fear that you won’t name
There’s still that truth that you can’t face
So you can’t burn it out
You’ll never burn it out
Yeah, you can’t burn it out
Cuz it was never there

There’s nothing there
Oh, it was never there
Baby, there’s nothing there
It was never there
