lyrics

I thought we were, we were… I thought we were, we were…

I was just day dreaming. You said shapes in the clouds, they aren’t worth naming.
And in that moment, blind to love. ‘Cause I lost sight, lost sight of us.
A ship out to sea with no lighthouse to stay from the reef
To save you and me.

I thought we were better than this. I thought we’d be something we would fix
So just go now and leave the memories
as something better than we turned out to be.

And now, now I’m sick. Singing wha-oh-ah-oh-ah-oh wha-oh-ah-oh-ah-oh
Thinking, were we good or just good enough holding place for what we want?
So let’s stay far away and we’ll each pick just what past tense we’ll paint.

I thought we were better than this. I thought we’d be something we would fix
So just go now and leave the memories as something better than we turned out..

Yes we will heal, we will grow but only grow scars
We never could keep from pulling old wounds apart
Pulled ourselves apart.
I thought we were, we were… I thought we were, we were…

I thought you’d change all your wicked ways.
You thought I’d break, but we just stayed the same.
So just go now but take these memories
‘Cause I know I’m better than who you made me be.
