It's safe to say we've always been actors
From time to time I think of what everything would be like
If we made one good scene
Apathetic time turns us into awkward passing nerves
Where nothing's ever beautiful and everything hurts
Because I loved you first
And we never sang those sad songs together

Our bodies they break down
Our honesty is breaking my heart
Whenever we're close neither one of us will change
Because I'm chained to the past with the future in my veins

"There is a car in the driveway. Just drive." she said
"There is a train downtown. We could hop right on and get out of here."
We've been running away from things we can't control
We can never settle down
We're always scared
Our hearts won't stop beating
But we've just got to stick this out until we hit level ground
Until the terrain gets easier
And then only there can we rest our lonely hearts
Let's rest our lonely hearts

Because I loved you first
And we never sang those sad songs together

    General CommentI relate to this song so much right now. This perfectly describes how I'm feeling about not being able to "talk" to the loveliest girl in the world anymore. We both know why neither of us is ready. It still hurts though.
