Wasting time in our winter clothes, keep the pacing slow
Hot on the heels of nights I've slept through
Fill the space in our empty hands, I never wanted to be that
You questioned my colours, I promise it rang true

Trick myself into thinking of all the ways we could start this
Deep in the knowledge that all this time I had my chances laid out in rows, neatly organised
I just wanted to wander, but never explained why

Is this what we wanted?
Hold back the words I'll never say
Been taking this for granted
Our frozen footsteps mark the way to the end of the road, it seems
But I swear we can make it out of this

Dig my fingers down into my splintered, broken ribs
A cage that I'll keep all of my thoughts trapped in
Cos if they escape and I succeed, I'll no longer want this now I'm free
And you will be hurt more than I have ever been

I'll pray that this selfish figment branches out
But I have spent all my days waiting for another night, where we can waste our time again
Block it out, and be your friend
But there's a question in my throat, 'Is this right?'
Is this right?
