lyrics

But it wasn't the petty things like that that ended it.
I'd be lying if I tried to sell some story of betrayal or disloyalty.
Reality's never that simple.

In the wake of all my thrashing you sought silence.
In the absence of my voice you spoke and you listened for the echo.
When it arrived it came as a sound you didn't recognize:
a chorus of voices that horrified with their exclusion of your own.

You knew then that you needed to be alone.
As much as it hurt, you had to let me go.

In the wake of all my thrashing you sought silence.
In the absence of my voice you spoke and you listened for the echo.
When it arrived it came as a sound you didn't recognize:
a chorus of voices that horrified with their exclusion of your own.

I want nothing more than for us both to be happier
even if it means that the last year is a lone volume.
We will both come out of this stronger,
together or apart. We have to figure out who we are

outside of each other, outside of love.
Sometimes you can't grow without sacrificing
the comforting clutching of another.
Dependence is all that we knew but it left us stunted.
There's an odd liberation that comes hand in hand with loneliness
and it's given me time to reflect.
