It feels like I'm falling but I've landed on my feet
The pain that crossed two lovers lost in the pain of self-discovery
If it makes me a liar, then I'm lying just for you
You estrangement in this arrangement, you don't get to make the rules

If it makes me a bastard, then I hope to God it hurts
A little harm from wrist to arm with self-inflicted lighter burns
In the eyes of your father, well I hope you made him proud
You don't know how far the rabbit hole goes down

Make believe we had our fun
Make believe we had it all
Maybe we're breaking up
You promised you would always remember
Make believe we got it right
Maybe we couldn't last one night
Maybe we're breaking up
The promises of breaking December

So thats how it's been now, and these five years have gotten me far
I don't think about you that much but when I do, I think about it hard
If it helps you remember, than you'll look back on the nights
the tears that fall during an endless call, your chin held proud over a knife

In case you are wondering, I won't drag your name through town
The cavalcade of shit storms brewing, the rain poured through the thunderclouds
And just if you're wondering, I won't return to the place
You won't see the past etched in lines upon this face

Make believe we had our fun
Make believe we had it all
Maybe we're breaking up
You promised you would always remember
Make believe we got it right
Maybe we couldn't last one night
Maybe we're breaking up
The promises of breaking December

"And you know it will never be, It will never be what you want it to..."

Make believe we had our fun
Make believe we had it all (sunlight)
Maybe we're breaking up
You promised you would always remember
Make believe we got it right (take my hand now)
Maybe we couldn't last one night
Maybe we're breaking up
The promises of breaking December

"And you know it will never be, It will never be what you want it to..."
