and since you've been gone i've been away
from here and now, from yesterday
the lies that it took to keep you around
so i held you here, we talked about
a life of sin, giving in and how sometimes
even god forgets

and I'd come to save you,
but I couldn't remember your face
so i closed my eyes and called out your name
and when i found you, you were slipping away
so i had to do what's best for you.

years spent alone
but I couldn't stay once i lost my soul,
i found my way back to the place i started with you
where we realized what we would do
with a mended heart, a brand new start
and the words we never meant to say

and I'd come to save you,
but I couldn't remember your face
so i closed my eyes and called out your name
and when i found you, you were slipping away
so i had to do what's best for you.
The lies that they gave you
were the same as the promise I made
You did nothing wrong but you were ashamed
and when I heard they'd give you away,
Well I had to do what's best for you

Say, say what you needed to say
you know you'll feel better now,
and hate me, hate me for all the ways I let you down
in search of you, I lost myself, I lost myself
But don't you feel better now?

and I'd come to save you,
but I couldn't remember your face
so i closed my eyes and called out your name
and when i found you, you were slipping away
so i had to do what's best for you.
The lies that they gave you
were the same as the promise I made
You did nothing wrong but you were ashamed
and when I heard they'd give you away,
Well I had to do what's best for you

The lies that they gave you
the same as the promise I made
you did nothing wrong, but always to blame,
even though you've forgotten my name,
I would still do what's best for you.
