lyrics

Sitting in one place for so long
Can turn a warm heart into stone
And that is what came to pass
Lower our flag to half mast

Mourning the loss of mornings we’d spend
Doing nothing to speak of but being best friends
If I hadn’t made that mistake
Would everything still be in place

And it’s hard to bear it
After years I still wear it
And this ain’t no pity show I just want you to know
The blame’s on us both so let's share it

Throw out the nicknames they’ve run their course
Learn how to seek comfort in some other source
Retire the songs we called ours
Relinquish our magical powers
