I could only hear her speak
When mouths were closed
And eyes were open wide to see
All the things you wanted me to be

We were moving in slow motion
And I could never open my eyes wide enough
Much too blind to recognize your love

When all our hearts have been emptied out and thrown away
We will search for another
We will search for another
When all we have isn't good enough and we're lost and alone and we feel afraid
We hurt one another
We will hurt one another

You could only hear me speak
When eyes were closed and hearts waiting patiently
For the things you thought my love could bring

But you were moving way too fast
And I could never let go I could never go back
I was so afraid of the things you were too kind to say

Now only a ghost remains

I was only trying to save you
I was only pretending myself
But I've been hiding some things
I've been trying
I was pretending everything was okay
I've been trying
I was pretending everything was okay
