Let’s erase any trace of us
Being here or there
Think of all things we could’ve said or done
Hardly holding on
But nothing more than a conversation
Strong and bloody
Your accusation catching my chin
Biting my tongue
Nibbling your lip
We’ve just got to make it through tonight
You can take me apart in the morning
Dissect what I said
Who I meant it for
I’ll tell you the truth
But you won’t trust yourself enough
To believe it
It’s my fault I assume
Or suppose
I should’ve built a relationship
From the ground up
But we were already in the clouds
And our whispers promised too much
As if we couldn’t deliver
Working out doing two today
One now one later
I’m here for you
Even if you don’t believe it
Our good intentions should be
Where we choose to die
I’d relapse before I lied to you
I’m breathing deep
Holding it all in
I’ll explain it all
Just give me this breathe
