It's been a long time now
All the years put a wall up for us
But sometimes the late nights
They pull you back to me
I find myself holding on for dear life

And the truth is I'm afraid to be alone
And it's easier to grieve for you

Look at you now
Look at you now
Doing just fine without me
And look at me now
Look at me now
Guess I'm doing just fine myself
Still a part of me is holding on
To a memory that's easier than now
Oh well
It is what it is
Say that all the time
I say that all the time

One of these days I'll seal the archive shut
Put you under lock and key
Maybe tomorrow
Maybe a year from now
But I know it will devastate me

So I avoid it to protect myself
It's easier to press on

And look at you now
Look at you now
Doing just fine without me
And look at me now
Look at me now
Guess I'm doing just fine myself
Still a part of me is holding on
To a memory that's easier than now
Oh well
It is what it is
Say that all the time
I say that all the time

Still a part of me is holding on
To a memory that's easier than now
Oh well
It is what it is
Say that all the time
I say that all the time
