There we broke down
Outside an old town
No escaping the shade as the light drowns beneath the promise of fading sun, and now your cross your fingers behind every one.

Here we are singing the same tunes,
The same bars, biting the bottle in back booths

I couldn't make sense of the changes
How I felt or were I could place it
You're not complacent with anyone, you're just searching for a reason to turn and run

Go and read the stars and signs now, so you can find your easy way out

I never wanted this, I never needed any of it

I watched you wain, and sway
Like the willow by my window pain
On bending branch the raven sings
Cut it all down and count the rings
Does it even make a sound
When it falls down and your not around
Your ears won't catch echoes of ache
So watch me bend until I break

I know that I do this to myself,
But I won't just break for someone else
