lyrics

Every street, every sidewalk every path that I'm on
Feels like I'm walking through our past
When he was next to me
My head fit perfectly, had its own place on his shoulder

And every road was blocked by orange cones
On the way to those apartments, I had two that felt like home
To put it simply, I am trapped by the memories
Of how we got here now

I've been looking for a door, but I can't even find a window
Don't want to be here anymore, but I've got no place else left to go
I can't keep staying here, for staying's sake
Cannot salvage what's left of the mess that we made
And it's a risk that I'm willing to take
To get lost along the way
It's just too hard to be here now

There was stillness on Delaware avenue
A dark symphony of silence that as of now resembles you
And all the time I spent at the monument
Writing melodies for no one

I loved that stale scent of old cigarettes
That would leak in from all the neighbors
Through those painted over vents
We were happy then
I'm not sure where or when or how we got here now

I've been looking for a door, but I can't even find a window
Don't want to be here anymore, but I've got no place else left to go
I can't keep staying here, for staying's sake
Cannot salvage what's left of the mess that we made
And it's a risk that I'm willing to take
To get lost along the way
It's just too hard to be here now

But I can't keep staying here
Oh no I can't keep staying here
I can't keep staying here

I can't keep staying here, for staying's sake
Cannot salvage what's left of the mess that we made
And it's a risk that I'm willing to take
To get lost along the way
It's a risk that I'm willing to take
To get lost along the way
