about

This song's about confronting your past, and sometimes how difficult it is, and taking the first step in recognizing that it's easy to run away from it and all the lessons it has to offer.

lyrics

I was caught off guard
I was unprepared
Memories in parts
Never to be shared

I hope you found your peace
In all your happy lies
Cause all that's left of me has died

Every day
I erase a little more of you
Rewrite, replace, recylcing plastic blues

I'm calling to the stars
To shine a bit more bright
Cause my mind is darker than the night

And all these parts of me
Are finding ways to other people's hearts
And all this love; it's so cliché
Enslaved, expired days take hold of us

I'm at the corner of the gate
Of my past mistakes
I see you everyday
But still I run away, run away

The clock strikes 10:00
About the thousandth time
How long Have I hit play, press stop, rewind?

And I recall a time when I did not know love
If only that were now because

All these parts of me
Are finding ways to other people's hearts
And all this love; it's so cliché
Enslaved by expired that days take hold of us

I'm at the corner of the gate
Of my past mistakes
I see you everyday
But still I run away, run away
