lyrics

There's a reason I didn't want to stay
Just let the imprint fade, and trip into tomorrow
'Tis the season of trying to save face
Could be your saving grace
But likely more your sorrow

Your girl is coming home
And all the nights we wasted felt so long
By ourselves the dream feels like a lie
Baby, you're a loner; so am I
Let's rot alone, together now...

Don't imagine we're ever really whole
After we overflow
The cold will turn your head around
All it takes is the smallest ragged seam
You know we're not eighteen
We're stomping over treaded ground

Your girl is coming home
And all the nights we wasted were so long
By ourselves the dream feels like a lie
Baby, you're a loner; so am I
Let's rot alone, together
Set fire to our faults and measures now

There's a reason I sleep and see your face
And in the morning, I wake
And smile 'cause someone gets me
There's a reason I know the dark abates
I live my life in the shade
But grow because you loved me.
