lyrics

I've grown to resent all this change
and now that my future has been rearranged
The things that I thought that I knew to be true
stare up at the cracks at which they have slipped through

The sunlight that let our love grow
the weeds of betrayal that grew from below
And choked out the light that we had
the higher the happy the deeper the sad

Won't you please tell me a lie
to ease up my worried mind
Cause when it comes down to the things that are true
I don't think I'm ready to start over new
I don't think I'm ready for life without you

I watched innocence fade away
like the sun bleeds to night at the end of the day
And all we're left with is the moon
laughing down at a future that ended too soon
if we asked him I'm sure that he'd tell us he knew

Won't you please tell me a lie
to ease up my worried mind
Cause when it comes down to the things that are true
I don't think I'm ready to start over new
I don't think I'm ready for life without you

I held on to the sadness
and I clung to the pain
The past is a poison that leads you to madness
the devil that will drive you insane

I learned how to let it all go
things that I learned became things that I know
the only true way you can live
is to open your heart and learn to forgive
