Lying State of Mind

I can feel our love
between our fingertips
and taste intensity
in the oxygen we breathe
I can almost touch
this distance
what’s keeping us apart
so thick in this summer air
it’s turning my lungs black and blue

you didn’t break my heart
or fracture my mind
but I do wish I could leave you
so far behind
why do I keep on hanging on
like I need you in my life
I cannot take you back in my heart
with your lying state of mind


I wish I could feel
like I didn’t know you all my life
Like you didn’t make me smile
and you didn’t make me cry
like I don’t feel confused
when you’re on my mind,
I know what I want
Why can’t you just decide
or leave me out of your life?

I just hopelessly imagine
the spark in your eyes
that lit up my sky
as we drifted in and out of reality
while the chorus of my past
sings ruthlessly in harmony

but who am I fooling?
days will pass
the sun will set
to make room
for the moon
but when I’m almost
half-asleep
I’ll think of you
and what we could have been
why did we have to end so well

you didn’t break my heart
or fracture my mind
but I do wish I could leave you
so far behind
why do I keep on hanging on
like I need you in my life
I can’t take you back in my heart
with your lying state of mind

but it wasn’t till the lies
did my eyes begin to rise
and look down at us
beneath the sun
I wasn’t so content
my mind just couldn’t consent
to my heart begging me to stay
I won’t wait for you to tear me down
how can my mind convince my heart
I don’t want to stay?
make the chorus of my past
just simply go away

you didn’t break my heart
or fracture my mind
but I do wish I could leave you
so far behind
why do I keep on hanging on
like I need you in my life
I cannot take you back in my heart
with your lying state of mind

I cannot take you back in my heat
with lying state of mind

oh, why did we have to end so well.
