Would you hold it against me if I say that, “I’ve been missing you lately?”
Do you remember when we sat outside my house,
watched stars cascade, turning into something else?
You said you would travel, I said you should.
You said you would travel, I knew you would.
It’s not the first time I felt this way.

I will be better for this. I will,
and from our time spent alone we’ll have stories to tell.
I will be better for this, I will. I will.
Go talk to your friends like I’m somebody else,
like I’m the man that you need when I’m the boy that you shelved.
Go talk to your friends, I’m finally somebody else.
Complacent on a shelf.

And you held it against me when I said everything about how fucked up this really is.
Home by 8, but you wouldn’t notice ‘cause no ones around anymore.
You moved across the country, said goodbye to your friends and you skipped my street.
Nothing but a dead end.

I will be better for this. I will,
and from our time spent alone we’ll have stories to tell.
I will be better for this, I will. I will.
Go talk to your friends like I’m somebody else,
like I’m the man that you need when I’m the boy that you shelved.
Go talk to your friends, I’m finally somebody else.
Complacent on a shelf.

I guess it’s common sense for me to shake like this,
I’ve seen weaker men learn how to deal with it.
I guess it’s common sense for me to shake like this,
I’ve seen weaker men learn how to deal with it.

Fell asleep to faith on tv, it kept belief alive in me.
(Best intentions? Worst decisions.)
You’re the faith healer of my dreams.
You leave my life so recklessly,
put the fear of God in me, and hush me back to sleep.
(Best intentions? Worst decisions.)
It never was a choice to leave it’s something I must do for me.
It never was a choice to leave it’s something I must do for me.

It never was a choice to leave it’s something I must do for me.
