lyrics

It's days like this
That make me not want to remember your name
Cause I've been gnawing at my tongue since we started this game
And it's like
No matter what I do I can't forget your face
Or the place where tears chase every fall from grace

Do you remember when I died in your dreams?
You were awoken in a cold sweat by your own screams
Cause I know
That that was back when you used to care
Back when those dreams were still considered nightmares

Two more weeks it'll all be over
Two more months will decompose her
Not that it matters to me
All those nights you wake and wonder
Is sunlight worth rain and thunder?
Still you see possibility

They tell me
You can't capture lightning in a jar
They tell me
You can't try to reignite the spark
I don't think
You were the best I'm gonna get
Cause baby
I wanna be...

Your biggest regret
So I can claim all the credit that I deserve
Cause my parting words must have struck the right nerve
And you miss me
You tell me while I'm burning the bridge
But the fire is still lit so pick a side and commit

I'm sick and tired of the inclement weather
It's just a constant reminder that it's not getting any better
I know that
The sunshine and smiles are gone
But at what point did you realize that you were wrong?

Our attraction was dictated
By chemicals which indicated
False promises of compatibility
Pheromones were on the rise
Seratonin in decline
Cyanide always a possibility

They tell me
You can't capture lightning in a jar
They tell me
You can't try to reignite the spark
I don't think
You were the best I'm gonna get
Cause baby
I wanna be your biggest regret

We burn our money in a little glass bowl
We need a break cause life can take its toll
Try green when you're feeling blue
But it won't fix what she did to you [x2]

They tell me
You can't capture lightning in a jar
They tell me
You can't try to reignite the spark
I don't think
You were the best I'm gonna get
Cause baby
I wanna be your biggest regret [x2]
