The Punchbowl – Transience lyrics

The first time that we met
Is running circles in my head,
You always did know who to be,
I never knew anything.
Your practiced smile in every picture
I’m always awkward and unprepared
Your every move as smooth as clockwork,
Mine like tumbling down the stairs.

You can’t say I haven’t loved you
You can’t say I wasn’t there,
You made your choice, your mistake
The mind is made through the heartbreak
If it should change
I won’t be there.

I know the way you hold the pages,
Every quirk and every grace,
If you were pencil I’d erase you,
And all of everything we’ve made.
Footsteps echo down the hallway
I hear you leaving every night
I hope yours are filled with haunting silence,
The loss is yours, as much as mine.

You can’t say I haven’t loved you
You can’t say I wasn’t there,
You made your choice, your mistake
The mind is made through the heartbreak
If it should change
I won’t be there.
