lyrics

Nearly 6am
Sun is creeping up
Becoming clear to me
I’ve run out of luck
Another wasted night
Whiskey, wine, and fear
That you’re not here

Clutching coffee cup
Burning from my eyes
Can’t wash away
Sins we hide insideWhen walls break down
I’m left alone
I should’ve known

Even at the start
Tearing us apart...
You can blame me now
You know that we were dumb
You can blame me now
Should’ve known better then
Yay but we were dumb
We’re no better now

Tell me what to do
How to plead my case
Everywhere I turn
Can’t escape your face
Remembering
Things I thought were true
About you

Even from the start
Tearing us apart...You can blame me now
You know that we were dumb
You can blame me nowS
hould’ve known better then
Yay but we were dumb
We’re no better now

—[BRIDGE LYRICS]
Suppose you’re right
We were stupid kids
Can’t take back
Stupid things we did
I just want you back now
Right now—
Even from the start
Tearing us apart...You can blame me now
You know that we were dumb
You can blame me now
Should’ve known better then
Yay but we were dumb
We’re no better now

They can’t blame us now
They know that we were dumb
They can’t blame us now
Should’ve known better then
Yay but they were dumb
They’re no better now
