lyrics

I'm giving up on what we had
It's not that you're poisonous
You're not that bad
Love rises like trees
Sinks us like wayward ships
We rode a carousel
We didn't know how to quit

Yes, I loved you but now I'm three years older
And nineteen will always play fool to twenty-two
Why do you look back when the girl at hand says, hold her
It's getting colder
you're turning blue

I'm giving up on what we were
Love isn't the antidote
It isn't the cure
I say give it time
My guess is a year
You broke in the driver's seat
Shaking with tears

And said there's no one else you would rather saw you crying
And my heart full fell when I realized it was me
I don't mean to say that the whole time I've been lying
I'm only implying
I wish I was free
