lyrics

"Don't go" -
Words I know
just go to show
just how you define "I'm resigned."
And how you can say "I am not okay
without you."

Don't leave.
I once believed
that you could be
my flicker of light in the night
I think that by now it's been dark a while.

And sometimes I think I was meant to be alone
Sometimes I just don't know.
Sometimes I think I was meant to let you go
Sometimes the thought hurts so.

Was it a friend that I needed, or a lie
so I could make myself believe
that I was fine?
What do you think I was waiting for? A sign?
No, I was waiting for
someone to call themselves mine.

Can't you see my body's out
of time?
Sometimes it's a sadness that
won't fit between your lines.

Looking at my fingerbones,
I wonder if they're misaligned,
and if loneliness is
just another way
just another way to say that I have realized
that no one's gonna fix me
not this time.
