lyrics

Well, did your first love leave you thinking
The summer air would never taste the same?
And after months that you spend sinking
You swear you'll never feel that way again
But, aren't you just so tired, tired of sleeping alone?
The whole world's on fire, fire and you can feel it in your bones
But, trust me
It gets hard enough to just breathe without you here
I traded best friends in for distance and a sense of something real
But, I could never change the way you make me feel
I'd rather bury myself alive than watch you
Bury yourself in someone else's wasted time
Cause we were never wastin' time
I've become so disconnected
I'm not exactly sure who's to blame
But, I've been thinkin' it's got something
To do with the fact that everyone I know feels the same
Yeah, everybody's only makin' up for lost time, makin' up for lost time
While I'm stuck at the part where I can't figure just what to do with mine
But, trust me
There's still no place that I'd rather be than right here
I traded best friends in for distance and a sense of something real
But, I could never change the way you make me feel
I'd rather bury myself alive than watch you
Bury yourself in someone else's wasted time
Cause we were never wastin' time
And I've been takin' this slow
Making sure everyone knows
Exactly what you're missing, just exactly what I'm missing
If I'm a melancholy work of art, you're what's tearing away and down my heart
One day I'll cut this whole world loose and I'll feel free again
I traded best friends in for distance and a sense of something real
But, I could never change the way you make me feel
I'd rather bury myself alive than watch you
Bury yourself in someone else's wasted time
Cause we were never wastin' time
