And I know
These last years in my mind I've grown
Sea-green glances over pale amber chances
But that was years ago.

Cracked jokes and smiles that night
Spilled drinks under fluorescent light
But that was years ago
But that was years ago

And I've grown...

I was carving out a road again
(I'll escape)
To places deeper than I've ever been
(I'll escape)
But I'm not there yet
(I'll escape)
No I'm not there yet
(I'll escape)

If only you could see your eyes
You'd know that I was never gonna make it out,
Not then, that night,
Not by the time that skies did slide under the hunter's knife

And so we played along
Like two fools with nothing left to lose
See, back then belief was cheap
But summer days, they fade into memory.

And I know
Those first weeks we'd wished that time had slowed
Cool-grey glances as we shared an understanding
That we'd be letting go
Letting go.

But from this day on there's no tomorrow
Our gazes trace the waning light
With a sea of limbs we grip the moments
And swear that they will never die
And yet, the silent promises we made ring out.
