I don't want to tell the story how I almost found the door
that opened to I'm sorry, I don't love you any more.
There's a messge in the bottle, but it's broken on the floor.
My alarm of pain is sounding,
as my heart continues pounding.
When you put your arms around me now,
I can't feel you like before.

Today I see your name in all the books you never read
and I hear you're out repeating all the things I never said.
There were times I hoped you'd come back.
There were days I wished you dead.
Now I find myself retreating
from the memory of our meeting,
all the lying and the cheating -
the life we never lead.

repeat last line twice more

A reflective soul sings from his heart, walking you thorough each emotion like a master.
