lyrics

Well I think it's time I go,
I've heard this all before.
Fingers leave their marks;
the world and God knows your left yours.
Sometimes it takes more strength,
to give up than to carry on.
I'm moving on.

So when you see me walking down the street alone will you pretend
to not know my name,
or who I've been.
So when I see you I'll walk in the other direction and hide my eyes.
At least I tried.

Am I who you want me to be?
Just a man without a crown.
Ceilings they'll fall in and collapse me to the ground.
I can forgive, but I won't forget.
I've fielded everything you've thrown my way 'til now.

So when you see me walking down the street alone will you pretend
to not know my name,
or who I've been.
So when I see you I'll walk in the other direction and hide my eyes.
At least I tried.

And this is not how i wanted things to end.
