Lyrics

I remember the day we met
Something about you I couldn’t forget
It marked the start of a brand new page.
Fast forward two months to locked lips and
I’d never felt anything like this
It was you every moment of every day.

It’s a shame to see you letting go of me
Shedding our memories
You still mean everything, everything
It’s a shame to see you leave things like this
Break off all your promises
Never thought I’d see the end
It’s a shame to, it’s a shame to see

So I guess we’re strangers now
Is this really how we’re gonna let the ship go down?
How can we pretend that this is right?
I know you moved on just like that [bye]
I’m not gonna deny the facts
But can you blame me for turning a blind eye?

Chorus

Congratulations, you take the title for best liar out there
Go on, accept it, it’s your big moment, you should be proud
And I’ll watch in loving memory of the man you used to be
Excuse my nostalgia, get up there, face the crowd, take a bow

Chorus x2

Lyrics

You sing words of love
You walk with a skip in your step
You act like you're the queen of town
Only seventeen
You've got the world at your fingertips
You think you've buried the bad deep down

You can't take the time to say hello
You act like you don't know me
But sweetie, I thought you'd know better
No one likes a cheater

Honey, I know your darkest secret
Now the whole world is gonna learn and
You can try and bury it deep
But the secret is no longer yours
 

You write words of wisdom
You talk with a perk in your voice
You walk around like you're the first
Honey, I've been here longer
I know this better than you ever will
But I applaud your effort

You can't pick my face out of a crowd
When I was the one who made you
And sweetie, I thought you'd know better
What you keep inside can kill you

Chorus x2

And this is the best thing your eyes will ever see
It could disappear in a moment
So take a snapshot for memory's sake
And pray to god it isn't stolen
You think that this is all a game, don't you?
You swallow it down like a candied pill
But if you're gonna make it, you have to be honest
And if you don't speak now, then I will
So I will

Chorus
Hey, don't you know, I've got you figured out?
Hye, don't you know, I know what you're about? 
No one likes a cheater, and no one likes a liar
You've already set your world on fire.

Lyrics

So we’re calling it the year of discovery
But I, I haven’t found a thing
But don’t you worry
‘Cause I’m not far behind
And I’m not trying to keep up with the times
I don’t really see the point
The new year’s ringing loud and clear

I searched the whole world to find
All the missing pieces of me
But they were already there
Not put together properly
I gave my all up and I
Hoped for something more
And even though everything’s missing
I’ve never been happier before

My eyes are tired, I stayed up all night
Couldn’t let the perfect moment pass by
But alas I’m still lonely
I’ve always been a step ahead of you
But you’re taking the lead now
Maybe it’s best that I follow
Until I figure all this out
Don’t fret, I’ll figure all this out

Chorus

There’s always something missing
Can’t seem to put the pieces where they belong
But now, for once, I don’t feel incomplete
This is my year of discovery

Chorus x2

Lyrics

Oh darling please don't cry
We both knew this was coming
I tried my best to warn you [hey]
But you just wouldn't listen
Remember all the times
West Cliff stretched on forever
And now a year has passed
I still love you more than ever

This room is much too big for just me
I know it’s not that far, but for you, I would swim the sea
Our song plays in the car, we sang in perfect harmony
Just call me one more time, your voice is my only company

Oh darling please don't cry
I'm not too far away
And don't you blame yourself
It just became too much to take
This town is beautiful
Because it has you in it
So count down the days
Until I come to visit

Chorus

Oh darling please don't cry
One day will be here soon
When we’re reunited
And I finally get to keep you
Please don't be scared
Darling, please don’t be scared

This room is much too big for just me
It’s not that far, but for you, I would swim the sea
Our song plays in the car, we sang in perfect harmony
Just call me one more time, please call me one more time
This room is much too big for just me
Oh, this room is much too big for just me
When our song plays in the car, I miss your perfect harmony
Please call me one more time, your voice is my only company.

Lyrics

I don’t recognize you in the least anymore
The silhouettes of your face fill the empty space
You’re gone in the darkest hours
Losing yourself to selfish things
I don’t know who you’ve become or why

But maybe you’ll see how it hurts me
And maybe you’ll see that it’s not all it’s made out to be
And maybe you’ll learn that I am right
Maybe someday, I won’t be in your life 

I’ll stay though you’re a stranger now
I’ll pull through even when it’s hard
Never one to leave when I’m needed
Your eyes stare right into mine
They see through all the pain
Do you not listen when you hear what I say?

Chorus

You say to let it go
I’ll try to let it go
But I can’t let this go
No

Chorus

Maybe you’ll learn that I am right
[Maybe someday, maybe someday]
Maybe someday, I won’t be in your life...

Tess Dunn

Lyrics

Today I’ll sew my sad mouth shut
So I stop screwing everything up
I don’t think I’ll ever stop
My mouth says things that I don’t want

So tell me I can’t be yours anymore
So tell me that I’m not yours anymore 

I don’t always get it right
I’m not even close half the time
I’ll begin the drive tomorrow
In the city lights, I can’t see home

So tell me I can’t be yours anymore
So tell me that I’m not yours anymore
I just want for you to know before you go
It’s impossible for me to let this go 

Pack my bags, get in the car, begin the drive to where you are
Say I’m sorry, come over tonight, let’s try and make it right
Work it out, fall asleep, cross my fingers that you don’t leave
Wake up, come to find you’re gone, should’ve known I’d be wrong

So tell me I can’t be yours anymore
So tell me I am not yours anymore
So tell me that you’re not mine anymore
So tell me that you’re not mine anymore
I just want for you to know before you go
It’s impossible for me to let this go.
