lyrics

Words for you are temporary,
They fall behind...
It always catches up to me,
I've tried to run, I've tried to hide, but I fall behind

All we hold sacred,
What we think we're made of,
Just poses for pictures,
That fall by the wayside

I tried not to blame you,
I wanted to save you,
I tried to replace you,
So I could escape you

Words keep pouring endlessly,
The more I write...
And ink stains leave their mark on me,
Can you drop a line?

All we hold sacred,
What we think that we're made of,
Just poses for pictures,
That fall by the wayside

I tried not to blame you,
I just wanted to save you,
I tried to replace you,
But I could never escape you

There's always a trade-off,
When you test what you're made of,
Just poses for pictures,
Watch them fall by the wayside,

I put it on paper,
As if words could change you,
I tried to replace you,
But you're a permanent fixture
