Lyrics

V1

I bet you could have been big enough if they told you what they all expected.

Simple faker with the saintly pleading so as not to be rejected.

Just a little intoxicated by this selfish lie you tell me.

I could stand upon broken ground if what I found resounded clearly.

 

CH

Just then you disappeared inside of all that I am and I know why;

It’s made of hope and fire, this innocent goodbye.

We sat beating the bad days back with a wanton attack of the certain and I know why;

It’s made of hope and fire.

 

V2

I bet it might have been perfectly fine were this scribbled line drawn straighter.

Moving through to be something true is so much better now than later.

How is it that I spoke so clear and came so near to love sincerely?

Just to find that this never could be something that would not elude me.

 

CH

Just then you disappeared inside of all that I am and I know why;

It’s made of hope and fire, this innocent goodbye.

We sat beating the bad days back with a wanton attack of the certain and I know why;

It’s made of hope and fire.

 

BR

I hope I don’t break you down. Break your heart.

This intent is nothing less than plain and said.

I live instead for being rid.
