What came as no surprise
To a jaded mind no less
Insight comes to soothing grace
Left to waiting days
.. Another chord unstrummed
Our secret's safe and sound
Solid now unless it breaks in two
Faithfully unbound
None of this was ever built to last
In the paleness of a less than life
From a corner watching old paint dry
Never once a break
Into the self again
An endeavour that will flat our fail
What maturity comes to end
Never one to face
.. Another beat undone

Our secret's safe and sound
Solid now unless it breaks in two
Faithfully unbound
None of this was ever built to last
Once again
Another instant saved today
Left a print that leads nowhere
Never built to last
What makes it work
A part of life that makes the weak hearts grow
Take it in if you_re willing to say
Willing to do
Prepared to lay it down
Just know this
It was never built to last
