lyrics

So it begins, born from heartbreak
under this hazy purple sky that we once shared.

Another day, a fresh new torment
It's this lack of purpose that's eating away at the boy I used to know

But if we take it slow, soon I hope, it'll get easier

You said I was an ocean
but you sailed across
with all my commotion you got lost
you got lost

So you got away? Good for you.
but my life's just been so empty since you withdrew

It's funny how your love turned to hatred since you skewed
all the memories of the merriment. It's all been misconstrued, you know it's true.

You said I was an ocean
but you sailed across
with all my commotion you got lost
you got lost

Last night I dreamed I was holding you, you were holding me and I felt home at last.
But when I awoke there was no trace of you no trace of me.
I'm a hollow fragment of my past.
You said you wouldn't throw me away, instead
you stabbed me in the back.
I was forsaken, I was betrayed. My life seeped out through the cracks.
I was left for dead the day that you fled, I lost all sight of the tracks.

Float on by those faded signs, but I'm crawling.
The sun is rising over the highway lines, but I'm falling.

It's what you said, what about all those promises?
You lied to me.
You played for me a fool, love
