lyrics

take a trip to the bottom of the lake

to go and drown all the pictures that i take

when you’re looking away

and you don’t hear me say i’m missing you

and everything you do


i mumble quietly whatever i have to say

my arms were tired so i let you get away

and that’s all i can take

so now i lie awake, i’m missing you

and everything you do


from the bottom of my heart, to the top of my head

from the letters that i wrote to you with words i never said

if there was a way i could’ve made you stay

well it doesn’t matter anymore, anyway


you always loved to see the city when it wakes

i always sat with you, watched it for your sake

when the clouds start to break

the sun emerges bright, i’m missing you

and everything you do


and the roaring in my head makes it too loud to hear

all the memories of lovely things you whispered in my ear

the white noise can take away all of my thoughts

but i know that once held, i will always be caught


catch a train to the edge of what’s there

we’ll talk about how nothing is fair

i’ll smile and tell you

'you’re really something rare’

then i’ll let go of every part of you


from the bottom of my heart, to the top of my head

from the letters that i wrote to you with words i never said

if there was a way i could’ve made you stay

well it doesn’t matter anymore, anyway


from the toes of my boots, to the tips of my hair

from the pictures that i kept in a box under my stairs

if there was a way i could’ve made you stay

well it doesn’t matter anymore, anyway


well it doesn’t matter anymore, anyway.
