I just want to let you know that I'm letting go -
my hand is just a ghost in yours.
My nights trace your words -
"it's not like you haven't done this to me before"
but what's a weak excuse, after all we've been through and now, now I sleep alone. You swore you were mine but now I sleep alone.
Remember how we were? - Hands held tight, singing in my car.
You were always way better than me, but you never said a word when I was out of key.
Now there's nothing we can do - I fucked it up and so did you and now we sleep alone. You swore you were mine but now we sleep alone.
You swore you were mine.
