We all sin in our own way
But you know I didn't mean it babe
Drinking on an empty soul
But an ocean wouldn't fill this hole
She said you're not an angel, you're a rat with wings
And it hurt so much to hear those things
There were two men in her heart
And it wasn't big enough for the both of us

Skeleton of contention, heart of stone
You weren't designed to walk this world alone
You built yourself to walk this world alone

Was he so terrible?
Was he the first train you ever saw fall off the rails?
Was he so hard to forgive?
Was his apology too late?
And did he seal his own fate?

Grow together or grow apart or you'll never know who you are
If you stay entangled in this way
Like two birds falling from the nest
It's true we crash landed
In the wreckage I was stranded
And you used me even though you'd never choose me
For you'd chosen before the tears had frozen
And I was too young like Icarus to the tempting gold sun

They got a fixed mortgage, dog, marriage, kid and divorce
Delicate situations met with brute force
Fractured families are no breeze
They're hurricanes, storms and raging seas
Everyone rushes down that aisle
Sometimes at the cost of a million smiles
An unseen childhood dream so wild

Me and you in reverse: You repaired the cracks in my heart
We got better and stronger
I forgot about you
We were much more beautiful in reverse
In reverse...

Grow together or grow apart or you'll never know who you are
If you stay entangled in this way
Like two birds falling from the nest
It's true we crash landed
In the wreckage I was stranded
And you used me even though you'd never choose me
For you'd chosen before the tears had frozen
And I was too young like Icarus to the tempting gold sun

    General CommentThis is about an ex girlfriend he really cared for (probably the girl he wrote Daydream Anonymous/Hardship Diaries about, at a guess) who he watched make mistakes in her life. It's sort of an "I don't blame you but I told you so" kind of thing.

    Very relatable for many of us I'm sure. Myself included.
