We spend our down time on phone lines and deep conversation
Waiting on weekends and wishing vacations
You're losing composure, alone on the outside
I'd spare you directions, but god knows I've lost mine

I'd hate to admit that I'd love to forget this
Leave it behind me and learn to accept that
The most that I can give you is word that I'm fine
I'm making my exit, it's only a matter of time

Just count on me to say
Everything that's good is gone, force a smile somehow
All the plans we've made, they're not breaking
If you're not breaking, this can't hold us down

Been my distraction, my center, my lifeline
A short breath of fresh air to make sure I stay high
Never to clever to lend me a kind word
You tell me what you've seen, and I'll tell you what I've heard

My keeping quiet is simply a habit
That looks to collapse me as you can imagine
But what doesn't kill us will make us stronger
So, we'll hold this in for a little bit longer

Just count on me to say
That everything good is gone, force a smile somehow
All the plans we've made, they're not breaking
If you're not breaking, this can't hold us down

If you fall away, if you fall away, yeah
And if you fall into winter and spring into action
So summer can through us out
If you fall into winter and spring into action
So summer can through us out

Count on me to say
Everything that's good is gone
Force a smile

Just count on me to say
Everything that's good is gone, force a smile somehow
All the plans we've made, they're not breaking
If you're not breaking, this can't hold us down
