I don’t want you to die for me
Or give up anything that you love
I know the world can be cruel enough

And headstones and dead leaves
Are just reminders of
What happens to living things
like us

I don’t want you to cry over me
Or be anything that I know you’re not
Even when everything you ever though you wanted
Turns out not to be enough

And empty roads and willow trees
Are just reminders of
What its like to be lonely things like us

Outside the street lights scrape into the sky
And lean like skeletons trying to hold up the night
While all the regrets we’ve carried our whole lives
Get buried in the earth
And we’ll walk away alive, yeah we’ll walk away alive
