lyrics

Mike:
I'm being eaten alive
In this city full of lies
That I built of guilt and shame
There's no one to blame.

Tim:
It's such a sad reminder
Of all the life we miss
And with this constant feeling
That put our lives at risk
The absent minded decisions
Some sort of catalyst
Replace your sense of regret
With blissful ignorance.

I'm at a loss for words
Broken hearts and damaged nerves.

I'm falling, falling faster
I'm falling, expect disaster.

I can't forget that
I'm falling, falling faster
I'm falling, expect disaster.

Ben:
Was it worth it?

I'm falling, falling faster
I'm falling expect disaster.

Someone please remind me
That I'm scared of falling.

Cus I'm falling faster
Than I expected
I've thought it over
And I'm okay with it. (x2)

Do you remember
Those summer nights when
We'd watch the stars above and
We'd feel so innocent. (x2)

Cus I'm falling faster
Than I expected
I've thought it over
And I'm okay with it.

Those summer nights aren't far from sight
But I can't forget
How we'd promise ourselves we'd burn this bright
Just to see the day light.

These are the thoughts that I choose to remember
Reviewing my life just to keep it together
Constantly anxious, so scared of the weather
The measures I've taken to try and forget her
Keep asking myself how did we even get here
Her head had grown tired sometime in September
We'd fallen apart by the end of December
We laid it to rest in the cold of the winter.

Hearts grow so cold in December.
