lyrics

The act of being silent doesn't mean there's nothing said.
Here we are in this new apartment, speaking unspoken language.
It doesn't feel like home yet and something says it never will.
it's hard to sleep when between you creeps foreshadowing of years to come between us.

Moving in with you is not moving.
moving in with you is moving on.

I unpacked all of the boxes like it couldn't be reversed,
I cleaned the house and waited to across the universe.
You cried as you closed the suitcase, for your temporary leave,
The last time that I saw you is forever burned into my memory.

i never wanted to move, but i did it for you.

When you came home that monday,
i was gone and took the bed.
Oh, that little stupid empty apartment,
truly symbolized the end.
i didn't want things to get ugly,
which is why we didn't speak.
It's impressive how only a handful of words,
can destroy what was once a beautiful thing.
