lyrics

I said if you stop doing nice things, maybe I could stop letting you down
You asked if there’s no other way around
It’s all I found
Thought maybe in an avalanche, the way we died would be romantic
Like we were tragically positioned
on the wrong side of the planet
We’ve always been the victims in a series of accidents
like when I accidentally met you
Yeah that is just the way I left you
I know you’re lonely
but I’m still growing
so let this go, cause I’m not the only
I know you’re lonely
but I’m still growing
so let this go, stop tryin’ to hold me
so let this go, cause I’m not the only…

One, with things left to say,
But you know, I can’t live without you breathin’ down my neck
and you say, “It’s no fair, please tear these arrowheads
and these quivers from my bones. “
Thought I could watch it from outside
maybe beat the shivers
but I am so cold, and I can’t feel, no.
I know you’re lonely
but I’m still growing
so let this go, cause I’m not the only
I know you’re lonely
but I’m still growing
so let this go, stop tryin’ to hold me
so let this go, cause I’m not the only…

One
So sorry darling, I can’t be your one
and only, your only.

Can we be friends with consequences
and all the consequential senses
we’ll be stuck with what we said and left with
you know we’ll be so offended…
So let this go, let this go.
