about

Some relationships don't end, even after they're over.

lyrics

A little white lie
Landed by your side
You gave it a glance and turned away
As with so many things
That you didn’t see
Here was a sign you didn’t recognize

And what can I say that hasn’t been said
Like “I love you, but our time is growing thin”
And what can I do to honour you
When the distance you feel can’t be denied

You cradle your words
I fumble with mine
We trade them like jewels under glass sometimes
We set them in gold
To have and to hold
In the past tense where our story is told

And what can I say that hasn’t been said
Like “I love you, but our time is growing thin”
And what can I do to honour you
When the distance you feel can’t be denied

So we stand
Hand in hand
Daring to peer round every bend
‘Cause ties that bind
Are seldom denied
The bittersweet cadence at an end
