lyrics

Stories of our lives are ones people don’t ask to read
Piled under days like books on shelves that no one sees
Names long left unsaid their meanings changed through the years
Once familiar streets now feel weird

How would you know if it’s too late for you to be the one that you want to?
Doesn’t it show dear, this is how we were?

Phantoms lost in an old chase present themselves once more
To revive a life you’d led long before
The ballast of habit you bear
Desire swelled by regret
The inevitable advent of a new self with each passing year

How would you know if it’s too late for you to be the one that you want to?
Doesn’t it show dear, this is how we were?

Hearts bound safely in time
Old enchantments displaced
New ones like cheap wine
Make you drunk make you blind steal your life away

How would you know if it’s too late for you to be the one that you want to be?

The death of the self, resurrect in the same place,
No harm to your health, the photos show we used to be a different way
Pain is to become a different person and feel no pain for voices and faces eradicated from your heart
