lyrics

I feel like a thief through your eyes,
You have me climbing through windows, walking on tiptoe.
I act like a secret and can't tell the difference
Between what I've done and who you really are.

And I've been reading through your books
and they remind me of a time when whispers kept you up at night.
And that's a lonely way to live when you've been lying all your life.
But I swear to god I'll try to forget this.

We're not quite finished just yet,
And I'll hold on to you as if I can't hardly breathe.
I'll drag out this moment as if it's important-
And steal for the rest of my natural-born life.

And I've been reading through your books
and they remind me of a time when panic kept me up at night.
And that's a lonely way to live when you've been lying all your life.
But I swear to god I'll try to forget that.

You're so absent minded--neglectful, I'm delighted
to make your acquaintance.
Goodbye now, good riddance.
And I hadn't thought this, but there's no more forgiveness,
compassion, or kindness--we will not get past this.

You're so absent minded--neglectful, I'm delighted
to make your acquaintance.
Goodbye now, good riddance.
And I hadn't thought this, but there's no more forgiveness,
compassion, or kindness--will I get past this?

And I've been reading through your books
and they remind me of a time when screaming kept us up at night.
And that's a lonely way to live when you've been lying all your life.
But I swear to god I'll try to forget this.
But I will not forgive you.
