lyrics

Irony - something I have learned to live with of late
A re-occuring motif to me,runs through everything,let me demonstrate -
Take it from the start,
The one thing that holds it together
Is what tears me apart
I cant see that changing ever.
              
                 
Partially blinded by the back-track spin of your vibe
No harmony plus a nauseous ache that eats me inside
An Albatross around my neck that weighs me down as it hangs there,
Coupled with a long list of regrets,becomes a weight that I cant bear


So dont talk to me casually as if it's something I could have forgot
Because the sadness is a thing that I could live with but the hopelessness is not.
And I feel like I should mention I say it with the best intentions but the cruelest irony -

I dont want you to leave but I need you to go
Because I dont mind to bleed,I just hate to let it show
I dont know what you believe but I need you to know,pathetic as it seems,its because i miss you so.


Irony - post you who had saved my life twice as well
Easily back into the same patterns and habits I fell
At the end of the road
I've always made the grave my destination
And every time my heart explodes
I know that you're the detonation

So dont talk to me casually as if it's something I could have forgot
Because the sadness is a thing that I could live with but the hopelessness is not.
And I feel like I should mention I say it with the best intentions but the cruelest irony -

I dont want you to leave but I need you to go
Because I dont mind to bleed,I just hate to let it show
I dont know what you believe but I need you to know,pointless as it seems,its because I miss you so


                You have all that is me now.


So dont talk to me casually as if it's something I could have forgot
Because the sadness is a thing that I could live with but the hopelessness is not.
And I feel like I should mention I say it with the best intention but the cruelest irony -

I dont want you to leave but I need you to go
Because I dont mind to bleed,I just hate to let it show
I dont know what you believe but I need you to know,as hopeless as it seems,its because I miss you so.


You have all that is me now.
