She's rising and I'm sinking.
I'm losing sleep, She's resting sound
in bed with such variety.
I'm driving and She's finding
that She'll survive when I'm long gone.
Do I stay in your mind at least?

There's so much time and nowhere left to go.
She's overcompensating for what She can never let go of.
There's so much time and nowhere left to go.
Am I just an escape for time to pass through?

She's lying and I'm thinking.
She's trying to forget it all
a memory of the past I'll be.
I'm buying that she's trying
the threat is clear and growing strong.
I dream to have such clarity.

It's all I'm thinking about
I guess I'll figure it out
I'll think I'll drink to each new lesson.
Ignore the passing of days
eventually I'll fade
and in the end, it's just a lesson.

    General CommentYeah, but then what does the line "she's overcompensating for what she can never let go of" mean? I think it's about how he thinks she's doing fine, but really she's as torn up as him, and wants to forget it and cant.
