Verse:
So you’re gone and I’m here
Looking through pictures I wish would disappear
Every excuse to say goodbye at least one more time
And I tried to walk away without a tear
But I’m too good at mistakes
And I fell a little too far, a little too hard
And I fell a little too far, a little too hard

Chorus:
In the long run I fell behind
All your words that turned into lies
In the long run I gave up my life
For a moment by your side

Verse:
It’s been hours since you left
I watched you drive away but I’m trying to forget
Sit by a phone waiting for you to call and tell me I’m not alone
You promised me, you lied to me
You said you never leave but you left
So you’re gone and I’m here

Chorus:
In the long run I fell behind
All your words that turned into lies
In the long run I gave up my life
For a moment by your side
In the long run
I fell behind
In the long run
I gave up my life

Outro:
So you’re gone and I’m here
Looking through pictures I wish would disappear
Every excuse to say goodbye at least one more time
