Lyrics:

Sing sweet goodbyes,
And whisper pretty little blatant lies.
I'll hold my tongue tonight.
'Cause I know nothing ever comes out right.
Around here we just don't know
How to let these things go.
We're always looking for another I told you so.

But maybe we were different, a rare case of the truth.
Mistaken for confusion, we dropped everything we knew.
Yeah maybe we were different, but we were just too afraid.
We fell for an illusion.
Yeah we figured it out, but we were just a little too late.

My mind was crowded.
And my thoughts, surrounded
By empty words and broken phrases,
Question marks and empty mazes
Where I was bound to always stay lost.
But I wouldn't dare to speak my mind.
I said, "There will always be a next time."
But you know that I can never make up my mind.

But maybe we were different, a rare case of the truth.
Mistaken for confusion, we dropped everything we knew.
Yeah maybe we were different, but we were just too afraid.
We fell for an illusion.
Yeah we figured it out, but we were just a little too late.
And the weight of this choice
Will struggle through the sound of my voice.
I'll force a breath as slow as my lungs will allow.
If only I could go back there and shake that girl now,
I would just tell her this.
Yeah, I would just tell her this…

But maybe we were different, a rare case of the truth.
Mistaken for confusion, we dropped everything we knew.
Yeah maybe we were different, but we were just too afraid.
We fell for an illusion.
Yeah we figured it out, but we were just a little too late.
