she says
it's impossible to realize
you're dead
when you shut your eyes
the car door has closed the highway opens up its arms
a couple hundred miles away from where we're from
i don't know where we're goin
i don't know where i'm gonna be
find another town that won't remember me

fill myself up with junk food
kill myself to bridge this gap
look what this has come to
we have reached the far edge of this map
you need someone to love you
the best i can do is not quite
and that only seems true when it's seen through the microscope of hindsight
and all i ever wanted to do
all i ever wanted to do
all i ever wanted to do
was be the exception to the rule
but you won't let me

you didn't make my decision easy
you made my decision for me
you made sure he could be nothing more than the antagonist
in one of your short stories
you've already made your mind up
you've already wrote the ending
we've both been cast as broken glass
and there's no hope of mending
and you know we're both pretending
it's my fault that it's goin' sour
but i haven't moved an inch and the distance between us is growing by the hour
and all i ever wanted to do
all i ever wanted to do
all i ever wanted to do
was be the exception to the rule
but you won't let me

we've been here before (all i ever wanted to do all i ever wanted to do)
we know how this will end (all i ever wanted to do was be the exception to the rule)
if we walk through this door (all i ever wanted to do, all i ever wanted to do)
we can't open it again (was be the exception to the rule)

we will never be the same - we've come too far (it's too late for these words)
forget about our yesterday - find a new star (your mind has been made up)
give yourself a new name - change who you are (the truth no longer hurts)
forget about all of your (?) - change both of us (confuses both of us)

i wish you could see
the emptiness inside
i've hid so carefully
in the hollow of my eyes

will this world be my last mistake?
a pretty face a first big break
the gravity will keep me in her cold embrace
left to watch the stars die out

she says
it's impossible to realize
you're dead
when you shut your eyes
