I was looking back, I was running away, and I was searching for wisdom in the words you said. I came home and watched the sun burn out; I'm sure you cried for days, but I couldn't seem to care enough to stay. The hospitals fell quiet every night, the hotel rooms were silent without your embrace. I caught myself in the mirror on the wall, but all I saw was the reflection of your face. That place spoke to me like the first time that I remembered what it was like to live and to not want to to die. The places change, the faces fade, the feelings rage; I cried for days but I couldn't seem to care enough to stay. Right now, I don't need anything. I'm all alone and I know that's right where I deserve to be. The roads all feel the same when I'm running away from the people who love me. But I don't what to do. I'm tired of haunting myself for all the words I couldn't use. This is the last time I'll write this song about you. It's all about you. And I still remember the ways we walked for days and days. We watched the heat break, the leaves change, the snow fall, the storms rage; but you couldn't seem to care enough to stay.
