  • From the tongue it slips some simple twist of fate
    To shape and shake the room we were standing in
    And I remember then the silence made me weightless in the tonic of you once again
    Where ignorance was bliss
    Ignorance was this place we could exist and then surrender
    Do you remember?

    The day you said it
    That's when I knew, that's when I knew, that's when I knew
    I'll never forget it
    The day you said it
    That's when I knew, that's when I knew, that's when I knew
    I'll make you regret it

    Now I'm staring at the ceiling wide awake
    Man, shit gets real when you're alone
    (I wonder if you'll ever know)
    There's these voices in my head
    They're screaming words I should've said
    But I don't know
    I can't let go
    And you are down
    Your taste was in my mouth
    The lipstick on the window
    You were gone

    The day you said it
    That's when I knew, that's when I knew, that's when I knew
    I'll never forget it
    The day you said it
    That's when I knew, that's when I knew, that's when I knew
    I'll make you regret it

    It comes and goes around
    Burn your bridges down
    Kiss the ground and turn the other cheek
    Why don't you close your eyes one last time for me?
    It comes and goes around
    Burn your bridges down
    Kiss the ground and turn the other cheek
    Why don't you close your eyes one last time for me?

    The day you said it
    That's when I knew, that's when I knew, that's when I knew
    I'll never forget it
    The day you said it
    That's when I knew, that's when I knew, that's when I knew
    I'll make you regret it

    Close your eyes one last time for me
