  • Joey from Nottingham, EnglandNope, I'm right it's about the innocent ones..

    V1
    Long goodbyes and second chances < Friends/fam?
    Forgiving all we fight for, forgetting all we lose < as above
    Cause we're losing it on the way things happen < making mistakes, falling out over silly reasons
    Doing all we do to fill up the quiet
    Break the awkward silence consuming our lives
    We're spending our time keeping our distance
    And speaking trivial and trite

  • Lisa from Palatine, IlI think you have the wrong song
