So I sit here writing words in our old place
They all come out as letters
And I contemplate mistakes that we all made
The start and the ending of errors
When mystery fades
We identify the problems
But they may not be problems after all
Shock and dismay
They affect what we say
We should bite our tongues
We should bite out tongues
Cause after all, it's only our lives anyway

And I can't let it bother me
If fact and faith just can't agree
On love, on life
Can we stop taking ourselves too seriously

So I sit here carving words into the walls
Words that remind of just how I was
I never felt as old and lonely
As I felt when I was young and in love
When mystery fades
We identify the problems
But they may not be problems after all
Shock and dismay
They affect what we say
We should bite our tongues
We should bite out tongues
Cause after all, it's only our lives anyway

And I can't let it bother me
If fact and faith just can't agree
On love, on life
Can we stop taking ourselves too seriously
Can't let it bother me
If fact and faith just can't agree
On love, on life
Can we stop taking ourselves too seriously

    should be

    "And I contemplate mistakes that we all made
    The start and the ending of eras"

    he's referring to relationships as eras or chapters in our lives.

    excellent lyrics - perfect for any recent breakup/happily single mood

    One of my favorite parts. Maybe someone tried to tell Anthony to not divorce his wife and bite his tongue.

    That would make sense.
