I don’t know why you had turned off your phone
Silencing mine close your eyes you’re alone
That’s all it takes anymore
Anymore

When I wake up I know you’ll be okay
I feel it first thing ’fore I’ve started my day
And I can’t take anymore
Anymore

Chorus

And I keep 
visioning the day you say you’re sorry to me
And I keep
Letting go of grudges cause it admits defeat
And I keep
Clinging to the premise that there’s more yet to see
And I'll keep
Holding to a vain hope this is something to beat

Verse 2

Can’t figure out where it went wrong for you
For me it was when you pulled back far too soon
Now we’re not on anymore
Anymore

And I look at myself clear and true every day
Wondering what part of me's not okay
And what’s going on anymore
Anymore

Chorus

Bridge

Do you remember we were happy once?
And please remind me of how long ago that was
Do you remember we were happier?
And please just say so if you want us to be done

So I’ll sit upon this mound of dust
Stoic until I feel your touch
And rush the door into your sun

And I’ll rest upon this bed of rust
Stoic until I feel your touch
And brush the doorway with your sun

And I’ll bathe myself in ruined trust
Stoic until I feel your touch
And gush about your finite sun

Because
As I forgave you in the same breath forgot
You hoped that I’d hate you but babe you hadn’t thought
About what you gave me and how little’s a lot

For some

And as I forgave you in the same breath forgot
You hoped that I’d blame you but babe you hadn’t thought
About how you’d saved me and how little’s a lot

To someone who had not
Known love
And even though you did it wrong
Our love
I was hoping that you'd somehow stop
Just stop
Break all your aching rules and stop
Just stop
And reaching out that you'd pick us
Up
Please stop
Please reach out and just pick us up
Just stop
Just reach right out and pick me up

I don't know why you have turned off your phone
Silencing mine close your eyes
I'm alone
