There's a little voice in my head
It's telling me to move on
But I'll never, I'm gonna hold on
To every word you said
It wasn't fair to me
You had to figure shit out
It felt like time dragged on and on

This is my note to you
Words I couldn't bare to speak
I'll bite my tongue until it bleeds
Through my grinding teeth
I'll sing this loud
I know that this wasn't your intention
You're that something I've been missing

The pieces fall into place
We slowly realize the promises we forgot
Are the only ones we made
Let's play it safe I won't speak a word
But when I'm lying next to her
I'm still looking into your eyes
I'm still looking into your eyes

The stars in the sky keep me gazing
Hazy vision I try to keep steady
Some so bright the others fading away
I want you to know that I'm barely holding on

I hope there's a piece of me left after this
I'm not quite sure who I am anymore
We'll try and we'll try but will never understand
Til someone speaks up and says I love you

The pieces fall into place
We slowly realize the promises we forgot
Are the only ones we made
Let's play it safe I won't speak a word
But when I'm lying next to her
I'm still looking into your eyes
We both know this isn't over
It's just the calm before the storm
The time it takes to tell you how I feel
We both know this isn't over
It's just the raindrops before the flood
I don't wanna miss us but I do
I'm just searching for the right words

I don't want to miss out
But I think we bit off more than we can chew
I don't want to miss us but I do
I just want you to know I'm done
Pretending it's all okay
Like this is just what I wanted
Take a second and speak your mind
Roll the dice I'm sick of waiting
We both know that I am everything that you need

I don't want to miss out
But I think we bit off more than we can chew
I don't want to miss us
I don't want to miss us but I do
