The Moment That It Stops (The Narrative)

Lazy days You're the only thing they waste away You're so afraid Of all the problems you've been faking And you will wonder where I've gone When you want me to make your heart sing The boys will still be chasing on But they can't guarantee the whole thing And when you cry The eyeliner will slip beneath your eyes You catch your breath Brush off your cheek Still aching as your hands grip at your sides He wrecks your dress Daring words Do you believe that I've been stealing time? And all that hurts Will only fade as the days fly And then you'll open up your arms And you'll be soon to let me in, dear Free from the heartache of his harm When we're the only ones who'll be here And when you cry The eyeliner will slip beneath your eyes You catch your breath Brush off your cheek Still aching as your hands grip at your sides Oh, I wreck your dress I think a change is what I need (I thought you needed someone you knew you could trust entirely) I've always been fine on my own (I thought that you were growing tired of always feeling alone) These days drag on, I'm losing faith (You said we'd work it out together but you're pushing me away) Well I'm here but I fear my heart is not (You said your heart would follow me until the moment that it stops) You should have known With all the things I crowded in your mind I'd leave you a mess
