lyrics

Friends who turned lovers
Went back to being friends
But nothing's ever over
Because nothing ever ends
I thought that it'd be easier
With calmness to be found
But I fight the urge to kiss him
When there's no one else around

We spin circles in silence
And fall flat on the floor
But the stench of desperation
Is much harder to ignore
So we both will mind our manners
And get through another day
But I struggle still to find
A better way

Of getting over you
Getting over your auburn eyes
I want so much to linger
But you're not one for long good-byes
Letting go of a dream
The sweet and gentle reverie
Finding the strength to love you
As you slowly walk away

If my heart's just an organ
Then tell me why does it ache
When I think on all that's come to pass
And all of our mistakes
If these tears don't serve a purpose
Why do they flow from me like rain
When I know that they can't
Wash away the pain

Of getting over you
Getting over your auburn eyes
I want so much to linger
But you're not one for long good-byes
Letting go of a dream
The sweet and gentle reverie
Finding the strength to love you
As you slowly walk away

And even though you're incomparable
You're still emotionally unavailable
And I'm not unassailable
And so it's time to walk away

It's just so hard for me...

Getting over you
Getting over your auburn eyes
I want so much to linger
But you're not one for long good-byes
Letting go of a dream
The sweet and gentle reverie
Finding the strength to love you
And then slowly walk away
