lyrics

I knew right from the start
Someday you would be mine
But you wouldn't hear me out
15 years until we recollide
It's too long
Too long
But I keep holding on
I've gotta stay strong

The way out is inside
And the way out is hard
On the way in the jury
Won't be judging you for long
And on the way out the Furies
Might try and steal your soul
With a bullet wound to the back of your head

Your mother knew right from the start
Stars were perfectly aligned
But you wouldn't hear her out
Weeks turned into months, turned into years, turned into lives
It's too long
Too long
But I keep holding on

The way out is inside
And the way out is hard
On the way in the jury
Won't be judging you for long
And on the way out the Furies
Might try and steal your soul
With a bullet wound to the back of your head

I failed you
I failed you again and again
But I know this time will be
Different, different
But if you can't believe me don't take me on my word
Can you see the state of my soul?
I burned it down
Can you smell that smell?
It's the stench of the old me
Running down through the river
I wasted so much time trying to get back to you

I wanna see myself in your eyes again
Every time that I failed you is still running through my head
Don't scratch that itch you know will come around again

I failed you
I failed you again and again
But I know this time will be
Different, different
But if you can't believe me don't take me on my word
Can you see my soul?
I burned it down
For you
