from by Ellery



It was a stupid mistake
I’ve played it over again
I felt it starting to break
but oh what a storm we were in

Leveled us both with a crash
You sped away in the dark
And I’ve only driven me mad
replaying how we came apart -But

I’m gonna be happy
without you around
I’ll figure it out
And I’m gonna be happy
just give me some time
I'm gonna be fine

I fell to pieces for you
and everything we couldn’t weather
and how there was nothing we could do this time
that would make it all better

And I’ve heard a lot of good lies
But there’s one I could never quite shake:
that sorrow’s some kind of good sign
I should carry with me to the grave

This is everything I hoped I’d find a way to say to you:
Darling, it’s a shame I couldn’t be a better place for you
but I can’t love by self-destruct
I’ve gotta give it up
