Walk away I know
You're not coming back
No one was ever told and you dared not to ask
I had this feeling you'd rehearsed
Cause all the words you spoke were so divine
Left beside myself your silhouette just passing by.

I hear you breathing fast asleep
Is it really so?
I'm tangled up in plaid and basking in the afterglow
I have this feeling we been here too long
The circles worn upon these floors
I stand beside myself a sea of change addressed unsure.

If you feel you've got to break my heart
That nothing here could ever heal you
If I could be the mend the cast, restart
Would you let me fix the rest of you?

I wipe away the years
You've blossomed through it all
Had my knees been there for me I might have never fallen
I want this feeling to deny it all, deny you felt the same and I
I left you by yourself my faults were there
Waving their goodbyes

If you feel you've got to break my heart
That nothing here could ever heal you
If I could be the mend the cast, restart
Would you let me fix the rest of you?

You've gone uncomfortably quiet & I am comfortably sad
I've given in and resigned you held the reins in your hands
My hearts divided, I've been placed securely under your thumb
My betters been best and I am feeling unsung

Walk away I know
Baby you're not coming back
No I was never told and I dared not to ask

If you feel you've got to break my heart
That nothing here could ever heal you
If I could be the mend the cast, restart
Would you let me fix the rest of you?
