I read those letters a thousand times,
Now I'm wondering, if I took you for granted
Now they seem empty and vacant just like,
The ring of the phone as I waited
For that call, that never was,
I remember looking through the smoke that burned my eyes
I was too scared to blink because,
I didn't want say goodbye
You know I love you and, I know you love me too
But sometimes I wish you felt the same
You hear this and you know, that there's nothing I won't do
But sometimes I wish you felt this pain
Let me in those arms, just look me in those eyes
Let me hold those hands I've held a thousand times
You hear this and you know that I waited for so long
Please just don't say goodbye

The word "miss" doesn't suffice, when everyone,
Is asking when you'll be back
I miss the smell of cigarettes and vanilla,
When I went to kiss you neck
I see the sky, and two bright stars,
One is you, one is me, both burning bright
I wish you were curled up in these arms,
So we could share this lonely night

You know I love you and, I know you love me too
But sometimes I wish you felt the same
You hear this and you know, that there's nothing I won't do
But sometimes I wish you felt this pain
Let me in those arms, just look me in those eyes
Let me hold those hands I've held a thousand times
You hear this and you know that I waited for so long
Please just don't say goodbye

This is not about compromise,
And I don't think you'll ever learn,
Were all those words a bunch of lies, was I even a concern

This is not about compromise,
And I don't think you'll ever learn,
(This is really not that hard, you should just look in that thing you call a heart, and give me a sign when you think you're ready)

Were all those words a bunch of lies, was I even a concern
(maybe this is all my fault, hell no, I don't think so, I'll just look to the sky when things get heavy)

Tonight, I'll look up to the sky, and hope that you cry

You know I love you and, I know you love me too
But sometimes I wish you felt the same
You hear this and you know, that there's nothing I won't do
But sometimes I wish you felt this pain
Let me in those arms, just look me in those eyes
Let me hold those hands I've held a thousand times
You hear this and you know that I waited for so long
Please just don't say goodbye
