  • The walls between
    You and I

    Always pushing us apart nothing left but scars fight after fight

    The space between
    Our calm and rage
    Started growing shorter, disappearing slowly day after day

    I was sitting there waiting in my room for you
    You were waiting for me too
    And it makes me wonder

    The older I get
    Will I get over it?
    It's been way too long for the times we missed

    I didn't know then it would hurt like this, but I think
    The older I get
    Maybe I'll get over it
    It's been way too long for the times we missed
    I can't believe it still hurts like this

    The time between
    Those cutting words
    Built up our defenses never made no sense, it just made me hurt
    Do you believe
    That time heals all wounds?
    It started getting better, but it's easy not to fight when I'm not with you

    What was I waiting for?
    I should have taken less and given you more
    I should have weathered the storm
    I need to say so bad
    What were you waiting for?
    This could have been the best we ever had

    I'm just getting older
    I'm not getting over you, I'm trying to
    I wish it didn't hurt like this
    It's been way too long for the times we missed
    I can't believe it still hurts like this Writer/s: BRIAN HOWES, JOHN COOPER
