Heart invested with little bouts of time vested
I was looking for returns on investment
But it’s hard to get rich quick

Oh, and I hastened to beat the clock
I tried to race it
Swooning words were copied and pasted
But you can’t fabricate it

Heart hollowed
A tasteless pill of pride swallowed
The past’s the hardest act you can follow
But it’s because I spent life quick

Oh and I tested the theory that a heart’s arrested
Scrumptious bits of passion ingested
That felt like s**t when digested

Did you think it would be easier
To live your life behind a window?
Did you think it would be easier
To risk heartbreak as a widow?

I always thought it would be easier
To search for better weather

Did you think it would be easier
To live your life behind a window?
Did you think it would be easier
To risk heartbreak as a widow?
(I could’ve gone back but I wanted more
I don’t need to be who I was before
Life’s at it's best when you brave the storms
You don’t need to be who you were before)

I always thought it would be easier
To search for better weather
