lyrics

I’m just lying staring into space
Thinking of your face
And all the things I thought I knew
It’s been so long since I’ve played you that little song
And listened to you sing along
We had nothing else to do

It’s been so long since I have seen a similar sky
I haven’t seen the stars so bright
Since you left me that night
I’m still looking for why you could no longer stand beside me
Did we reach to high
Or was it all just a beautiful lie

I’m just thinking of calling you up
Do you think we could make up
And forget about everything
We’ve been playing those evil phone tag games
Afraid to be the one to change
Afraid that things will be the same

It’s been so long since I have seen a similar sky
I haven’t seen the stars so bright
Since you left me that night
I’m still looking for why you could no longer stand beside me
Did we reach to high
Or was it all just a beautiful lie

How did we come so far
Was it really just too hard
I couldn’t see how we grew apart
I just wish we had a brand new start
