lyrics

I told you once, I told you twice
I don’t want more of your helpful advice.
The moment has come, it’s finally here
When I’m going to say things you don’t want to hear. Because

I don’t think either of us recognize
What time takes away.
You didn’t need nothing from me anyway.

That look in your eyes tells me something’s not clear.
Is it pain or regret or distain or your fear?
You say that I’m wrong, you think that you’re right.
I don’t expect you to change, but just hoped you might because

I don’t think either of us recognize
What time takes away.
You didn’t mean nothing to me,
You didn’t mean nothing to me,
You didn’t mean me anyway.

No one was ever hurt by the truth. In
Lies and silence, bitterness takes root. But
No one will talk. No one’s left to ask and
Don’t leave it to me, I’m not up for the task of

Finding out why you needed to hide
What time takes away.
It might have meant something back then,
It might have meant something back then,
It might have meant something back then but not today.
