So I stayed the night hoping you and I
Would fix this shit, sorry can I get it right?
But the lights were off,
And I had my doubts she can't be gone

Using photographs
We were over exposed when the shutter snapped
We were the best damn actors imitating our past (we won't last)
Drowning in the midwest, so let the water fill your lungs
And make sure you do your best
Obtain oxygen and make them last
Stories told, lives are sold
We can't hold everything I promised you
It was a long shot and I missed in the dark
Come on, let's forget how to breathe
It's the only way we used to be

So I stayed the night hoping you and I
Would fix this shit, sorry can I get it right?
But the lights are off
And I had my doubts she can't be
All this time we cross each other’s body lines
We were fighting on
What can I say?
I was vulnerable at the way
And you’re crazy, driving me crazy
What can I say? We were determined to make it out
And you’re crazy, driving me crazy

But the story’s told, lives are sold
We can't hold everything I promised you
Everything I promised you
So come on, let's forget how to breathe

So I stayed the night hoping you and I
Would fix this shit, sorry can I get it right?
But the lights are off
And I had my doubts oh no, she can't be gone
All this time we cross each other’s body lines
We were fighting on
