If I had eyes in the back of my head
I would have told you that
You looked good
As I walked away

And if you could've tried to trust the hand that fed
You would've never been hungry
But you'd never really be

More of this or less of this or is there any difference
Or are we just holding onto the things that we don't have anymore

Sometimes time doesn't heal
No not at all
It just stand still
While we fall
In or out of love again I doubt I'm gonna win you back
When you got eyes like that
It won't let me in
Always looking out

Lot of people spend their time just floating
We were victims together but lonely
You got hungry eyes that just can't look forward
Can't give them enough but we just can't start over
Building with bent nails we're
Falling but holding, I don't wanna take up anymore of your time
Time time time

Sometimes time doesn't heal
No not all
Just stand still
While we fall
In or out of love again I doubt I'm gonna win you back
When you got eyes like that
It won't let me in
Always looking out
Always lookin

    There's still feelings towards an ex but they don't the same feelings as you and you have come to terms and are moving on with your life, without them.

    The chorus is really beautiful, as depressing as it is. I guess it's because I can really relate to it. Time doesn't heal everything- and then you just stand there, watching, wishing...
