This is a letter
To my former half that's better
And I know
It's such a shame
My knees get weak
Everytime we try to speak
And I wish that this could change

But I'm timid in public
I restrict my breath
Then my stomach gets sick
To be forgetable
Hell, so regretable

Well I don't
I don't wanna fade into the background
No, I don't wanna fade into the background
No, I don't wanna be another empty voice in a crowded room
No

I get to see you
Another secret randevous
You'll never get the pain
Striving for perfection
Headed in the wrong direction
Since you cut me from your reign

But it's obscure
Still pure
Insecure was the feeling I could not conquer
Came up short
The unobtainable
Explain the unexplainable

Well I don't
I don't wanna fade into the background
No, I don't wanna fade into the background
No, I don't wanna be another empty voice in a crowded room
Well I don't
I don't wanna fade into the background
No, I don't wanna fade into the background
Don't let me that voice for you

But obviously
My gratitude has been on the delay
'Cause I've been waiting on all the perfect words I could say
But would you even hear me?
Inevitably
My attitude against it's right in the way
You know it's right in the way of you

This is a letter
To my former half that's better
And I know
It's such a shame
My knees get weak
Everytime we try to speak
And I wish that this could change

But I'm timid in public
I restrict my breath
Then my stomach gets sick
To be forgetable
Hell, so regretable

Well I don't
I don't wanna fade into the background
Not the background
Don't let me be another empty voice in that crowded room

Well I don't
I don't wanna fade into the background
Oh, not the background
Oh no, no, no, no

Well I don't
I don't wanna fade into the background
No, no, not the background
Oh, not the background of you
