I can't believe that you would build me up
With all this goddamn self confidence
Just to turn around and wet your lips for someone else
Then try to apologize for this fucking mess
So wake me up when the storms subside
And the waves stop crashing over my head
Maybe I can breathe again

Jumped off this cliff just to spend time with you
Thought you were the wind under my wax wings
Found out too late you were the sun burning my back
This salt water against my skin still stings

Can we pretend just for a moment
That you're the one drowning in this deep ocean?
Maybe then I'll learn to waste my time on someone else
Instead of spreading myself too thin
So wake me up when the storms subside
And the waves stop crashing overhead
I don't think I'll ever breathe again

Jumped off this cliff just to spend time with you
Thought you were the wind under my wax wings
Found out too late you were the sun burning my back
This salt water against my skin still stings
It still stings

So if you think this is worth it, then leave it to me
And I'll chew it all over again, again
Cause you've fucked me over
Much more than that night when you wouldn't stay sober
So if you think this is worth it, then leave it to me
And I'll chew it all over again, again
(All signs of remorse that you left upstream
Got lost in the tides with my self-esteem)
Cause you've fucked me over
Much more than that night when you wouldn't stay sober
(All signs of remorse that you left upstream
Got lost in the tides with my self-esteem)
