Well did your first love leave you thinking
The summer air would never taste the same?
And after months that you spent sinking
You swore you'd never feel that way again
But aren't you just so tired of sleeping alone?
The whole world's on fire and you can feel it in your bones
But trust me, it gets hard enough to just breathe without you here

I traded best friends in for distance and a sense of something real
But I could never change the way you make me feel
I'd rather bury myself alive
Than watch you bury yourself in someone else's wasted time
Cause we were never wasting time

I've become so disconnected
I'm not exactly sure who's to blame
But I've been thinking it's got something to do with the fact
That everyone I know feels the same
Yeah, everybody's only making up for lost time
I'm stuck at the part where I can't figure out just what to do with mine
But trust me, there's still no place that I'd rather be than right here

I traded best friends in for distance and a sense of something real
But I could never change the way you make me feel
I'd rather bury myself alive
Than watch you bury yourself in someone else's wasted time
Cause we were never wasting time

And I've been taking this slow
Making sure everyone knows exactly what you're missing
Just exactly what I'm missing
If I'm a melancholy work of art
You're what's tethered, weighing down my heart
One day I'll cut this whole world loose
And I'll feel free again

I traded best friends in for distance and a sense of something real
But I could never change the way you make me feel
I'd rather bury myself alive
Than watch you bury yourself in someone else's wasted time
Cause we were never wasting time
