Rain running down the window pain
My clothes still smell like your cigarettes
I Empty my woes onto the page
So my body no longer carry the regrets
Baby all of our arguments
Used to be my favorite past time
When it to be too much
Put the game on pause like half time

When you not anti
I gotta check your tone like a landline
When it fall it all falls quick
And gets messy like a landslide

I feel like I can’t try
And if I do that can’t win
Better luck next time
It’ll all come around again

Like clock work
I hear the time tick
I know you got hurt
I know I gotta work

Pain was
Never my intention
Our pasts
Were too tormented
Now you coming
With a vengeance
Tired of pretending
This is normal affection
When the smoke settle
Emotions neglected

I think we need a break from this
Feels like we’re moving too fast
Baby, all of these growing pains
Keep bringing up the past

I drew a line in the sand
Then the waves crashed
Reminiscing days back
When the stars aligned
And our brains matched

Gotta swipe left on us
Don’t like the turns made
Now you bringing back old shit
Feels like it’s Thursday

These words play a part
In our dismay
Had me speaking things
I’d never say
Gotta go
I’m tired of the rage
Can’t recognize my own face
Moving slowly living in a haze
Waiting for a brand new day
Really tryna make a change
Don’t wanna go Thru this again

When it fades
I’m unrecognizable
Left here despising you
I’m really I’m owing you
Nothing but love
But it gets lost
Looking for peace
How much do that cost

It’s better to happen this way
Before we cash in on too many mistakes

Hearts living large protected by gates
Keeping out what we don’t want
And can’t take

Easily lost in a place
Misguided misfortunes created a haste
Looking at recipes what not to make
Living on edge never playing it safe.

Two different journeys becoming one
Fighting against the rising sun
We wasn’t ready for what we have done
We go to battle but nobody won

I think we need a break from this
Feels like we’re moving too fast
Baby, all of these growing pains
Keep bringing up the past
