“I put my love in the ground before I ever met my love
And I’ve convinced myself that nothing on this earth
Will ever be enough.”

So when the petals fall upon your chest
And the earth makes do of what is left
Tell me all your fears were worth being kept
Tell me this is what defines you
This is what makes you who you are

No one’s going to save us
We are all we have
No one’s going to find us lying sleepless in our beds

No one’s going to save us
We are all we have
No one’s going to find us lying sleepless in our beds

We’ll never get back the time we’ve wasted
Hating ourselves and always wanting more

Fuck what once was, fuck what will be
If I’m suffering now, it’s only because I’ve been focusing on these things
I’m caught somewhere between where I once was and where I’ve always wanted to be

“Love is just a picture that we hang in admiration
Abstract and up for anyone's interpretation
For me it’s always been black and white
The silhouette of a figure lying on it’s side
It’s been so long since I’ve seen color in my life.”

But it goes on
With or without us
We’re young, we’ve only just begun
But we’re giving up because we’ve been waiting so long
And still nothing has come

We separate ourselves with all that we think and feel
They’re gathering flowers for us
A wreath for our despair
