Bridges Burned

It's about distancing yourself from others, so you can make leaving them easier, but find you don't want to give up on the one you love

I distance myself to makes things easier

I break my own heart to suffer no longer

I'm thinking I should make an effort to bridge this gap

But what's the point, cause I'm not even sticking around

 

I know, I know

It's hardly the way to begin my heart's education

But I can't help but be a shadow, a ghost amongst angels

And instead of saving myself

I'd rather be amongst the haunted

 

I break the will of others to open up an escape

if only to let them make up their own minds

Lately I find disregard the complete companion

I'm sure my friends once afforded me opportunities

 

Slipping, I'm beginning to let her warmth back in

I can't understand my actions, not knowing where to begin

I thought I had seen the last of her with my destructive words

But as I see her standing there, a mesmerising spectre under the stars

I'm so glad she's coming home

 

I know, I know

It's hardly the way to begin my heart's education

But I can't help but be a shadow, a ghost amongst angels

And instead of saving myself

I'd rather be amongst the haunted

 

Here on this little space in an electric void

Begins the exodus of those I ignored

I thought my lover would be overjoyed

But it seems I haunt her dreams

As her echoes haunt me

 

I know, I know

It's hardly the way to begin my heart's education

But I can't help but be a shadow, a ghost amongst angels

And instead of saving myself

I'd rather be amongst the haunted

 

Unwise words to drunken spectres

A haze of memories we both shared misery

But we're both scared to scorch our paths to return

We cannot bear to be without them

 

I know, I know

It's hardly the way to begin my heart's education

But I can't help but be a shadow, a ghost amongst angels

And instead of saving myself

I'd rather be amongst the haunted

The End
