Funny how the little things
Can stake a claim in memory
And cheat time to last a hundred years

I swore that I'd be strong enough
To drop my heart and pick it up
And make the great escape without a tear

So nieve

And I hold my breath a little too long
And you were quick to carry on
And I'm learning in the afterglow
It's a long way
A long way to letting go

Waiting on eventually
Where you'll become my history
And I'll begin to rebuild the wall

I'll forget to mention you
And wish that you were lonely too
And never ache, missing your call

I'm so neive

And I hold my breath a little too long
And you were quick to carry on
And I'm learning in the afterglow
It's a long way
A long way to letting go

Was looking easier ideally
And I falter at my hesitation's end
Close my eyes as I begin the countdown,
Reach for breath, I'm counting down
But I hesitate at ten.

And I hold my breath a little too long
And you were quick to carry on
And I'm learning in the afterglow
It's a long way
A long way to letting go
