Lyrics

counting seconds after midnight
here my breath is the only thing
there’s a sweetness still that lingers
as though I never watched you leave

should I write a requiem
or will I get to tell you that

I was holding back
waiting for the words to say
that I’ve been broken down
but I’m ready to be whole again
and I was hoping
hoping that you would stay

from this second story window
I see your face in passersby
and were it not for lack of courage
you would be here by my side

should I write a requiem
or will I get to tell you that

I was holding back
trying to find the words to say
that I’ve been broken down
but I’m ready to be whole again
and I was hoping
hoping that you would stay

I’ve been tongue-tied
shackled up, too scared to try
but I don’t want to let you pass me by

I was holding back
I’ve been broken down

I was holding back
trying to find the words to say
that I’ve been broken down
but I’m ready to be whole again
and I was hoping
hoping that you would stay
