We're swept by the dawn, and as we lie awake
You lay stiff in my arms, adrift in the wake
Of what felt less like love, and much more like a take
Of a scene in a movie where the heroine's saved
From her lonely, desperate state

We've dotted our i's and crossed all of our t's
In the script of the lifestyle we planned for our teens
But I'm just a prop that you set for your stage
In a fairy tale romance the critics would praise
If each kiss were performed, as always:
"Once more, with feeling"

But we kids disregard all of our yearning hearts
And make like we're actors just playing our parts
Constructing characters so unlike ourselves
To live out our lives in the artificial realm
Of drama we create

Cause life is a movie we'd all watch again
But just can't bring ourselves to rewind in the end
We make mistakes that we wish we could change
And the things we regret form the coming of age
And I wouldn't want it any other way

So now we're eighteen, and I feel much too old
To continue the farce; to keep filling these roles
As we lie together we lie to each other
We're closer than we've ever been
But i move further from the truth
The longer that I lie next to you

Left my love in bottled letters
Convinced myself it's for the better
To end this, but I'll always remember
I swear to hold my breath forever

(This is the last time I'll ever swear myself to you
This is the last time I'll ever say, "I love you too")
