Album: Option Paralysis (2010)
  • You were a face in the crowd
    I threw myself onto you
    I tried to take you away
    I didn't know how to do
    But I could not give you the most
    Something's I said were never true

    Yet still we clung to a ghost
    I feel so bad you never knew
    I felt like you should know
    But I could not tell you so

    When you walked away
    I breathed your name
    As you walked away
    As you walked away

    We can never get back what we choose to throw away

    When you walked away
    I breathed your name
    As you walked away
    As you walked away

    We can never get it back what we choose to throw away

    I don't know how to hold on to something, that seems determined to crow by the day
    Every time, I think I can handle, you only seem to get farther away
    I never realized just how hard it was, for a person like me to do
    For a person like me to do

    When you walked away
    I breathed your name
    As you walked away
    As you walked away

    We can never get back what we choose to throw away

    When you walked away
    I breathed your name
    As you walked away
    As you walked away

    We can never get back what we choose to throw away

    I couldn't watch you, wishing for something that seemed more imposable by the day
    Every time I saw your expression I only seemed to run farther away
    I never realized just how hard this was, for a person like me to do

    Obsessed with thoughts that deform
    Held on by hope to the one
    Crippled because of chains
    That eclipse reality
    Crushing into truths we all perceive
    Without perceiving

    I couldn't hold on to, the things that matter to you
    It was my big mistake
    Thinking there were two roads to take
