Receding Heart

The world is not rainbows and butterflies
I can’t compromise about my lives views for you
I offered to stay, but I rub you the wrong way, what can I do

Love now fleeting
Hearts receding
I can’t bear to stay

So I’m gone back to real world
Back to the rat race, back to the real girls, back to the pace of my old ways
But I am through, your a monster but I still love you
But I’m so done with you and all the things you do
And so I’m gone, gone, I’m gone

Behind my wandering eyes, rest all your lies
I am crushed and defeated
My rose colored lenses
Shattered, almost numbing my senses


Our time is done
Cause I’m so gone
I’ve left and gone away

So I’m gone back to the real world
Back to the rat race, back to the real girls, back to the pace of my old ways
But I am through you’re a monster but I still love you
But I’m so done with you and all the things you do
And I’m so gone, gone, I’m gone

Like a wave crashing on me
What we once had can never be
Drowning inside
Stuck in the tide
Caught in these love ridden eyes
I can stop waiting
Cause this love is fading

So I’ve been gone too long already
You fell apart while you were in front of me
You said please take me back
The love the we once had is now black
But I’m so done with you and all the things you do
And I’m so done, done, I’m done
