I can't sleep and in the morning when you start to breathe
I'll be falling apart at the seams
I'm the one who can't seem to drown
Now it's you that can't breathe
with all the things that we used to believe
I found you sleeping alone next to me
I'm the one who can't seem to drown

So I'll just keep my mouth shut, put my drink up
and float away...

Been living with your ghost but now it's faded
I guess I got one more chance to say this
I will never be what you want to see
Gotta let it go

I can't see as the stars in my eyes start to bleed
I'll be walking it off with my feet
I'm the one that shot it all down
But you couldn't be with a boy that you couldn't believe
was the one who could help you to breathe
I'm the one that shot it all down

So I'll just keep my mouth shut, put my drink up
and float away...

Been living with your ghost but now it's faded
I guess I got one more chance to say this
I will never be what you want to see
Gotta let it go

Picket fence on the property
two kids, blonde hair, a novelty
but I know it couldn't work that way
family portrait over the fireplace
so in the words of my brothers
and in the words of some others,
"got to be careful with those lovers"

So I'll just keep my mouth shut, put my drink up
and float away...

Been living with your ghost but now it's faded
I guess I got one more chance to say this
I will never be what you want to see
Gotta let it go
Been living with your ghost but now it's faded
I guess I got one more chance to say it
I can't sleep and in the morning when you start to breathe
I'll be falling apart at the seams
I will never be what you want to see
Gotta let it go
