our locked eyes and your shy glance away
the way your hand fits in mine
clutching your ring
the cold side of the bed
your perfume on my sheets
don't let these days stretch into weeks
a missed call
your missed voice
a missed chance at real happiness
candle light
a bottle of wine
my days are long
and my nights i don't remember
it's my fault
i fell in love in the first place
if you leave this city
take me with you
or don't look back
if you leave this city
take me with you
or don't look back
a box sled for two
summer night swims
look in my eyes and ask me what i'm thinking
i'll tell you it's you and only you
we are denying our hearts
and untouched lips
i have a plan
we'll leave here together
have that life we always dreamt of
wooden floors and chandeliers
and you can tell me i'm not dreaming
it's all my fault
i fell in love in the first place
it's all my fault
i fell in love in the first place
if you leave this city
take me with you
or don't look back
if you leave this city
take me with you
or don't look back
if you leave this city take me with you or don't look back
if you leave this city take me with you or don't look back
it's all my fault
i fell in love in the first place.
it's all my fault
i fell in love in the first place.
