It's another page we wrote
Now every day feels like a hurricane

I wouldn't stay the same
I am broken, piece by piece
Think of every way you set me free
My heart beats for it

The sun sets in the east today
I know I'm wrong, you know another way
But it's so far
Running backwards
In the shoes you gave to me
And so we go on

I'm sitting at the shore
Without a trace, I'm lost at sea again

Why do you try to plead to me?
When you've never seemed so far away
And the more you slip, the less you say
I can't feel you here anymore
