  • I'm only pretty sure that I can't take anymore
    Before you take a swing
    I wonder what are we fighting for?
    When I say out loud
    I want to get out of this
    I wonder is there anything?
    I'm going to miss
    I wonder how it's gonna be?
    When you don't know me
    How's it gonna be?
    When you're sure I'm not there
    How's it gonna be?
    When there's no one there to talk to
    Between you and me
    'Cause I don't care

    How's it gonna be?
    How's it gonna be?

    Where we used to laugh
    There's a shouting match
    Sharp as a thumbnail scratch
    A silence I can't ignore
    Like the hammock by the
    Doorway we spent time in, swings empty
    Don't see lightning like last fall
    When it was always about to hit me
    I wonder how's it gonna be?
    When it goes down
    How's it gonna be?
    When you're not around
    How's it gonna be?
    When you found out there was nothing
    Between you and me
    'Cause I don't care

    How's it gonna be?

    And how's it gonna be?
    When you don't know me anymore
    And how's it gonna be?

    Want to get myself back in again
    The soft dive of oblivion
    I want to taste the salt of your skin
    The soft dive of oblivion, oblivion
    How's it gonna be?
    When you don't know me anymore
    How's it gonna be?

    How's it gonna be
    How's it gonna be Writer/s: Arion Salazar, Kevin Cadogan, Stephan Jenkins
