Album: Front Row Seat (2015)

  • I'm trying to clear my head, walking these shores
    Standing in the waves in the moonlight
    I saw that white dress you wore
    When you feel dead inside, you only see ghosts
    Little memories refusing to let go

    You say you already know
    You say you already know
    Do you really wanna watch this man drown and go?
    Goodbye is the hardest part
    I was supposed to hold your heart
    Like the grains of sand through my hands, it fell apart
    And you say you already know
    You say you already know

    And I daydream of demons who give me the reasons to fall
    It's so much easier to numb the pain than just deal with it all
    And I can stay a prisoner behind these walls
    Thinking that the creaking is your footsteps down the hall

    And you say you already know
    Oh, you say you already know
    Do you really wanna watch this man drown and go?
    Oh, you say I'll be alright
    I've gotta learn to live my life
    But I can barely stand my own sight
    And you say you already know
    And you say you already know
    Know, know

    Yeah, you say you already know
    Oh, you say you already know
    Do you really wanna watch this man drown and go?
    Oh, goodbye is the hardest part
    I was supposed to hold your heart
    Like the grains of sand through my hands, it fell apart
    And you say you already know
    You say you already know
