my heart is speeding as it's braking
i can't figure out what to say
so i said, "i'll see you tomorrow."
but you and my brain heard it different ways

you heard, "i don't want to talk to you"
and as i look back, i see why
but the only thing i could hear inside me was
"you just keep hurting him. please, just say goodbye."

so i did and i regretted it
but not until i thought about you
for the next twelve hours i was too busy though
wondering if anything you said was true

my heart is still racing
but i start to feel is slow down
when i think about all the highs and lows
because through it all, you've stuck around.
