Dearly beloved,

I've been searching for some
Silver lining, these hopes of mine all appear lost
So I'm ready to make a change

I know I should've told you
I'd been pining for you,
That pride is something a fool holds onto to feel right
And that's a part I had to play

So I'm cursing photographs and lines
That put your smile next to mine
I'm out of luck and out of time
But not out of songs

That go "Whoa oh
I miss you more than ever"
I'll say I'm sorry, but I won't accept it's for the better
Just be my favorite town, I'll keep you safe and sound

I've been a little reckless
Writing you into my life
With words that I still pretend to hide
And yet I hope that you understand anyway

Just know that I would still put
My world on hold for you
1000 ways to say that I adore you
And nothing would ever dare take that away

So I'll say "Whoa oh
I miss you more than ever"
I'll say I'm sorry, but I won't accept it's for the better
I'll keep on counting stars, wishing I had your heart

So oh oh
Just know I think about you
And how I wish that those were my arms you had wrapped around you
I'll keep on counting stars, to fill these empty arms

So have the best of luck, and find the space you need
These are all the words that I can't find when you're with me:

"Do you remember what it meant 11 months ago,
When you stole the breath straight through my teeth?
Oh, it hurts to see you smile and it hurts to look back
But what hurt most was watching you leave"

So I'll say "Whoa oh
I miss you more than ever"
I'll say I'm sorry, but I won't accept it's for the better
I'll keep on counting stars, wishing I had your heart

So oh oh
Just know I think about you
And how I wish that those were my arms you had wrapped around you
You're still my favorite song, here in these empty arms
