[for all of us who didn't mean to be so quick to say out loud the things we weren't quite sure we meant. and, for the hard conversations and goodbyes that are inevitable because of it]

 

I. 

i can Feel it creeping up, though it lies heavy in my chest
and, in the space between your words it sits restless, hoping to get its chance to say it
it listens closely to your words, and it aches, oh it hurts 
to tell you things that are haRd to let out, but even harder to hold onto

 

c h o r u s 

i wanna hold it back, i wanna sAve you dear from the truth that will Set me free
but, i can't save you by lying, can't fill the empty space with pretty words, just to make you happy
this is not what i wanna say, oh, but it's what you need to hear
i am not In love anymorE

 

II.

in the blankets, in the sheets, i can feel your aRms around me 
and, in the quiet i can feel your promises breathing down my spice
and, my only wish is to say the same to you
but, i am not in love anymore 

 

c h o r u s ( w i t h   b r i d g e )

 

l a s t   c h o r u s

i tried to hold it back, i wanted to save you dear, but the truth had to set me free
i couldn't save you by lying, couldn't fill the empty space with pretty words - it wasn't making me happy
this is not what i wanna say, oh, but it's what you need to hear
i am not in love anymore, at least not with you
