Another night falls on disappointment
Hoping to feel what I've become incapable of
Her breathing is silent, but her dreams are filled with crashes
She flinches, she flinches

And I am not who I promised I'd become
I am not who I promised
I am not who I promised I'd become
I am not who I promised

I am the steam that escapes a knife wound in an alleyway on a cold January night
I am those words left unspoken that you will never again have the chance to say
I am the little engine that should and would if I thought I could
The dividing line between what we wanted and what we got
Blurry and immovable and not open to anymore discussion

And I am not who I promised I'd become
I am not who I promised
I am not who I promised I'd become
I am not who I promised

Her breathing is silent
But her dreams are filled with crashes
She flinches, she flinches
Her breathing is silent, but
her dreams are filled with crashes
She flinches, she flinches

And I am not who I promised I'd become
I am not who I promised
I am not who I promised
I'd become (who I promised I'd become)
I am not who I promised

I am not who I promised I'd become (who I promised I'd become)
I am not who I promised
I am not who I promised I'd become (who I promised I'd become)
I am not who I promised

I'm sorry
