lyrics

Did you know I can disappear
Behind smiles and a thousand lies
When your eyes, like knives, cut so deep
Everyone's all gone again
I guess it's just a growing trend
If only you were here tonight
I tell myself that I will be alright

When words decrease between you and me
When we take our hearts off of our sleeves
I disappear, I disappear, I want you here
When always turns into never
We'll pretend we just can't remember
These awful fears, these awful fears, I need you here

Nobody's who they say they are,
There's nobody you can trust
And my lust, my crush, has gone away
I watch the bottle, I watch the glass
I watch as things blur and I let time pass
If I go back now, this will never end
I will not make the same mistake again

When words decrease between you and me
When we take our hearts off of our sleeves
I disappear, I disappear, I want you here
When always turns into never
We'll pretend we just can't remember
These awful fears, these awful fears, I need you here

They say I shouldn't fear my nightmares
But if this is what my mind can do
You'll excuse me if I'm terrified, excuse me if I'm terrified
They say I shouldn't fear my failures
But if this is what my words can do
You'll excuse me if I'm silent, please excuse me if I'm silent

When words decrease between you and me
When we take our hearts off of our sleeves
I disappear, I disappear, I want you here
When always turns into never
We'll pretend we just can't remember
These awful fears, these awful fears, I need you here

When I disappear, my salvation is here.
