I'm on my way back down where we'd lay to rest and waste the days away
Can you believe she was just seventeen as you held her hair and prayed

The hardest part of playing these cards is to
Pretending not to care when you dont
While I'm away know that nothing will change
And I'll return to the foot of your thrown

When it seems like one in a million
It feels like somethings been missing here
It seems like a change for a ruin
Seems like the perfect solutions near
I knew I shouldn't have held my breath

So to bed to wait on my own crippled fate, on the fire escape you
Wept and said you'd rather forget all the days I held so
Dear in mind but hearts mend in time so close your eyes
To speak, my sweet, your melodies will always ring in my ear.

So keep singing though the phones never ringing again
It seems like i might be on my way home again
But it feels like I might be just chasing my own tail again
I knew I shouldn't have held my breath
