Forfeit the game or play to win?
I made my bed and now I'm sleeping in.
Woke up late to find you gone.
Hope I wasn't wrong.

I think you caught me thinking out loud.
Would I be crazy if I burnt my own house down?
Then I could rebuild to my liking.
Close cover before striking.

Breaking ground for the new me.
Breaking down every time I think about it.
Breaking ground for the new me.
Getting up from these past catastrophes.

I'm always using words like maybe and someday. maybe someday I'll learn
That tomorrow's always a day away.
I always knew it would feel like this
But I can't say I was ready for it.

Out of state, out of mind.
At least I can pretend I'm fine.
Could this cup of coffee
Really keep me company for another winter alone? I'm always using words like maybe and someday and
sorry.
I'm sorry I couldn't say you remind me of everything I ever wanted to be.
Maybe we were meant to be.
