I can't embrace what you left behind
Must be the awkward tension makes us blind
I can't entertain 'cause the lines have dried
You can't claim I never tried
To displace the spaces, the different faces
Fit between the tightest places
Somehow found a way to drain this pool that used to entertain us

As time goes by
The words align
Form sentences
That intertwined

[Chorus:]
It's the first time I'm speaking my mind on this
I'm not alright but I'm doing fine, I guess
When you leave, I can only reminisce
It's finally clear you're not here to clean the mess

Delay in correspondence
Might make me the type of guy
Who'll exhibit independence
But then happily oblige
At the suggestion that she makes when you quote mutually decide
To take the clay that you become and give her free reign to ply

[Chorus:]
It's the first time I'm speaking my mind on this
I'm not alright but I'm doing fine, I guess
When you leave, I can on reminisce
It's finally clear you're not here to clean the mess

I burned all the batteries and bridges in this town
How can I recharge without the means to turn around?

[Chorus:] (2x)
It's the first time I'm speaking my mind on this
I'm not alright but I'm doing fine, I guess
When you leave, I can only reminisce
It's finally clear you're not here to clean the mess

I'm gonna find a place that I belong to
When I do I'll find a face worth holding onto
