lyrics

I thought I said all I needed to say
but there's still a lump in my throat each day
torment is my only friend
reminding me of how good you were then
reminding me of how good things had been

and there's a part of me that still pretends
that we'll be together in the end
but my love, he's over me
and he lies to my face just so we can speak
he lies to make me happy

now I'm the wreck and you're fine
now I'm making up for lost time
now you're the rivers and I'm the fire
and I'll burn and burn 'til I learn to fight
I'll burn and burn 'til the end of time
I'll burn and burn 'til you see my light

well damn it all, I want to leave
but he's got that over me
moving to a new city
the one I used to be in
but he'll find someone to fall in love with

people tell me, “let him go.
he's half a man, this you know.”
but something about him feels old
like our paths crossed lifetimes ago
and something has me holding on
something, even though I know it's wrong

now I'm the wreck and your fine
now I'm making up for lost time
now you're the rivers and I'm the fire
and I'll burn and burn 'til I learn to fight
I'll burn and burn 'til the end of time
I'll burn and burn 'til you see my light

just so you know I'm there
just so you don't forget
just so you know it's fair
I'll burn 'til you understand me.
