Recovering

I told you, I told you, I told you, I told you
One day we’re fine, one day we’re flat
And I never, I never, I never
Understood that
Never understood how it came to this.
I never understood what you thought you’d missed.

We’ve been spinning around each other
All these years;
Independent orbits, independent fears.
We talk at each other but neither one hears.
And I can’t imagine making it last
When we’re  going down in flames this fast.
We need to light a different kind of fire
Turn down our tempers, turn up the trust.
This isn’t a test, the stakes couldn’t be higher
It needs the kind of fix that can’t be rushed.
We need to get it together,
Get on the same page or lose it forever. 

I told you, I told you, I told you, I told you
One day we’re fine, one day we’re flat
And I never, I never, I never
Understood that
Never understood how it came to this.
I never understood what you thought you’d missed.

I know you’re thinking about a life without me,
Shake me off, get yourself free
But that life sounds cold, it sounds lonely.
And you can’t imagine making it last
When you’re living with the ghosts of the past.
We need to find a fresh start,
Banish our demons, let sleeping dogs lie
Because I gave you my heart,
And I don’t want it back, not after this much time.
Don’t give yours to another,
Just give our love a chance to recover.

I told you, I told you, I told you, I told you
One day we’re fine, one day we’re flat
And I never, I never, I never
Understood that
Never understood how it came to this.
I never understood what you thought you’d missed.

And now I’m letting go
Of my ‘I told you so’s’
Drying my last tear
And breathing my last sigh
Hoping for a few more years
And plenty fewer lies
And love that never,
Love that never,
Love that never, never dies.
