lyrics

I’m lost inside your cries
you tremble over me
I blush until I bruise
I claw through twisted limbs
just shy of victory
we only play to lose

I did the best I could
with the way things were
and I’ll never look back in anger
I could with a wicked wild grin
I did the best I could
if I burned all night
could I earn this fight I started
I could never look back again

you swim and push so hard
I’m pinned in ribboned silk
I bend to fight the tide
cool water trickles in
relieved and unfulfilled
won’t say we never tried

I did the best I could
with the way things were
and I’ll never look back in anger
I could with a wicked wild grin
I did the best I could
if I burned all night
could I earn this fight I started
I could never look back again

my words are breaking out
my heart is breaking in
I’ve got a wanderlust
I wanna break the skin
my heart is breaking out
your words are breaking in
I wanna break the skin

I did the best I could
with the way things were
and I’ll never look back in anger
I could never look back again

I could if I burned all night
could I earn this fight I started
I could never look back again
I could never look back again
