Leaving Us Behind

“Leaving Us Behind”

“Leaving Us Behind,” released on To You, 2018.

wasn’t shocked to discover
you hadn’t texted me for days
and it feels like months
since you tried to talk to me
and I know we both have the means
to communicate
but I guess I’m trying to see
if you’ll chase me
I miss you as the boy
who I know you used to be
you seem much more distant
and cut off from reality
chorus:
why’d you have to cut me off
let me do all the work
I’m kinda tired of your behavior
getting on my nerves
so I don’t want to sit around
and let you waste my time
I’m going off somewhere else
and leaving us behind

I hoped we’d be the couple who
survived for all time
it comes to show the state
of my optimistic mind
of course I knew we wouldn’t
stay together in the end
but I hoped we’d stay together
quite longer than we did
I miss you as the boy
who I know you used to be
you seem much more distant
and cut off from reality
chorus
but if you never spoke
a single word to me
imagine how much different
I would be
and if you never spoke
a single word to me
imagine how much different
we would be
chorus x2
