Discovering The Waterfront

Album: Discovering The Waterfront (2005)
  • I will promise myself I won't care
    distracting myself from your stare
    and I've seen this mistake once before
    with your games I will never fall for
    I've hung up my guns....
    I won't kill again!
    [Chorus]
    I won't forget you! (I won't forget you)
    I'm not going to let you win!
    but I'm tired of lying!
    tired of fighting you!
    and it's not going to change
    you ask for my heart
    you know I'm down
    but not the way you lie to me, you tear it all apart and beg for me to say
    I sail off to sea, I'm not coming back
    [Chorus]
    count me down
    make that sound
    when you know it makes no sense
    count me down
    until you mess around
    when I know you can't ever change
    why am I trying?
    throw it overboard
    when I'm ready to we'll progress
    count me down
    make that sound
    break the silence!
    pretend its not forever
    I'll pull myself together
    I'll save it, I'll forget her, I'll breathe....
    and I'll say she never hurt me
    and look at it as learning
    and laugh about the good and the bad
    because I will live forever
    we don't belong together
    I know I'll be the better.
    one day I will make it through.
    [Chorus 2 X's till fade] Writer/s: Joshua Bradford, Neil Boshart, Paul Koehler, Shane Told, William Hamilton
