This Day & Age – All We Thought We Could lyrics

Aren't we so good at holding on to the past?
If we weren't speeding, I'm sure we wouldn't have crashed.
Under the influence of our shallow lust.
I know we should be careful but that won't happen to us.

Love is a second, third, fourth and fifth shot.
God knows I need it; God knows you haven't forgot.
It's easier to look down than straight in the eye.
I'll only say this once because I know it's going to make you cry.

Oh and you are too much like a drug to me.
No longer what I want, just what I think I need.
Why would I leave when I could waste away with you?
Less concerned with what I'll find than what I could lose.

But you say; "Can't you give us one more try? We're in a knot that I can't let you untie." (x3)

It's easier to look down than to look you straight in the eye.
I'll only say this once because I know it's gonna make you cry.
There is a reason I feel lost when I'm not with you.
It's not because of love; it's just that you are what I've gotten used to.

If we don't leave now, we never will. (Say good-bye)
Turn your back one last time on me. (x2)
