  • Lyin' next to you
    Wishing I could disappear, hey
    Let you fall asleep
    And vanish out into thin air, hey

    It's the elephant in the room
    And we pretend that we don't see it.
    It's the avalanche that looms above our heads.
    And we don't believe it.

    Tryin' to be perfect
    Tryin' not to let you down, yeah
    Honesty is honestly the hardest thing for me right now, yeah
    While the floors underneath our feet are crumbling
    The walls we built together tumblin'
    I still stand here holdin' up the roof
    'Cause it's easier than telling the truth.

    I still keep your photographs
    I remember how we used to laugh
    I can keep on losin' sleep
    If you're okay with being torn in half.

    It's the elephant in the room
    And we pretend that we don't see it.
    It's an avalanche that looms above our heads
    But we don't believe it.

    Tryin' to be perfect,
    Tryin' not to let you down, yeah
    Honesty is honestly the hardest thing for me right now, yeah
    While the floors underneath our feet are crumblin'
    The walls we built together tumblin'
    I still stand here holdin' up the roof
    'Cause it's easier than telling the truth.

    Stop ignoring that our hearts are mourning
    And let the rain come in.
    Stop pretending that it's not ending
    And let the end begin.

    Oh yeah

    Tryin' to be perfect,
    Tryin' not to let you down, yeah
    Honesty is honestly the hardest thing for me right now, yeah
    While the floors underneath our feet are crumblin'
    The walls we built together tumblin'
    I still stand here holdin' up the roof
    'Cause it's easier than telling the truth.
