Such a beautiful color
You wear upon your skin
And the perfect shade of purple
On a flower permanent
And I'm constantly reminded
Of a past that never bloomed
As I sit behind these bars
Only silence fills the room

I've never been down this road before
As the days go by, I only miss you more
I thought one day we would touch the sky
Never grow up, never gonna die
I never realized what you meant to me
'Til I tried drowning out your memory
But it runs back, like it's not over
It only hurts when I'm sober

Such a beautiful color
I wear upon my skin
And the perfect shade of purple
On a flower permanent
And I'm constantly reminded
Of how I should have changed
And now I can't stop thinking about the love that slipped away
It slipped away

I've never been down this road before
As the days go by, I only miss you more
I thought one day we would touch the sky
Never grow up, never gonna die
I never realized what you meant to me
'Til I tried drowning out your memory
But it runs back, like it's not over
It only hurts when I'm sober

You're all that I ever wanted
You're all that I needed
And now I'm spending a lifetime
Drowning without you
I'm starting over and over again

Such a beautiful color
You wear upon your skin
And the perfect shade of purple
On a flower permanent

I've never been down this road before
As the days go by, I only miss you more
I thought one day we would touch the sky
Never grow up, never gonna die
I never realized what you meant to me
'Til I tried drowning out your memory
But it runs back, like it's not over
It only hurts when I'm sober

I've never been down this road before
As the days go by, I only miss you more
I thought one day we would touch the sky
Never grow up, never gonna die
I never realized what you meant to me
'Til I tried drowning out your memory
But it runs back, like it's not over

It only hurts when I'm sober
It only hurts when it's over

    This song reminds me of my daughter i lost in 2002. Starting a chain reaction that distroyed my marrage. I got a tattoo in 2009 of her name. It took me that long to be at peace and my life has been so much better. This song was my life for 7 years.

    It reminds me of the girl i have been with on a off as she keeps going back and forth between being with you and not and every time she is gone there is a pain that can never go away no matter how much you try to not think about it. Nothing but dwelling is the part that kills you and at the end of the day you know its just "over"
