lyrics

This song is for the girl
You know, the one who got away
And I still love her to this day
But I was too weak to keep her here
And this is not for your pity
But to recollect my life
So much has happened
And I fear I'll forget the rest

Her soul was made of paper
And every word stained her forever
But she was stronger than she seemed
Until she wilted and got cold
You and I we were fleeting
Like the stars run from our sun
Until his light overthrew me
And left me hidden beneath the snow

I still get this feeling
Whenever you are near me
That you'll be soon coming home
And now that I am older
I can see that we're a lie
So please forgive me I'll be on my way

I once met this man
Who had been blind since he was young
And he had never seen the sunshine
So he lived on faith alone
And his warmth spilt over me
When it ran off I was clean
Like the river to the ocean
I'll always run back into you

And I'm still stuck in this town
I can't seem to break from the ground
Where all my nightmares surround me
I guess I'll drink until I'm blind
I told you that I was lonely
And how badly all this hurts
So you stayed the night with me
Your love and heart kept me warm

Please forgive my words
They don't think before they speak
Because these thoughts of us just bring back pain
We had spent fifteen months
Drinking each others' love
Until I found my cup empty and yours still full

This song was for the girl
You know, that one who got away
And they say there's more than just you out there
But I'm too tired I'll just sleep
