I've been clearing the air
Of every connection we had lost
What a criminal thought
That you gave so much room to multiply
And we left you to soak in conversations
With a door you could not close

And I was intertwined
For the first time
With my own lies
As we both crossed
A devastating line
And the flood died
It never mattered why
When we chose sides
We were both right

I've been opening mail
Addressed to the man I used to be
What a sick old voice retreats
From my lips each time I speak
What a practical joke, but you let it have you
Didn't that just prove my point?

And I was intertwined
For the first time
With my own lies
As we both crossed
A devastating line
And the flood died
It never mattered why
When we chose sides
We were both right

Was it enough for you
The vessel they poured you into?
Was all the damage done
Out in the saffron field?
You were so aggravated
Missing your chance to make your mark
So you tore apart what you had left inside your chest
But if you regret taking that step
You haven't yet

So I threw it all back
The love that I didn't yet deserve
And it's wringing us out
As though it was suffering
Through everything I'd done
But it's over my head
How everything washes up again
'cause I spent most of my life ruling things out
Sinking my teeth into your every bit of doubt

If I was coming clean would it reach you?
From what I've seen, it was all true
There's so much left to grieve
Couldn't hurt you to leave it be
Just for one day
Just to see straight
