lyrics

I look to you and I see everything I wanted us to be
It wasn’t right it wasn’t true and yet I knew it was for me
It’s not my fault it’s not my fault and yet I feel the weight of blame
I clipped your corner with my edge they told me you could not be tamed

How many ways to live a life
If I search farther from you what will I find
How many ways to live a day
I alone can only ask but never say

Each frame is bare and every picture will be silenced by a flame
Since I was young in every word I spoke there hidden was your name
So move now quickly before life arrives and just kicks in the door
There isn’t time enough to visualize that less will give you more

How many ways to live a life
If I search farther from you what will I find
How many ways to live a day
I alone can only ask but never say

And once I’ve gone
And once I’ve gone
Is there a light you could leave on
And I’ll return with all the gifts that only leaving can afford
If love is the shield
If love is the shield
If love is the shield
Goodbye must be the sword

How many ways to live a life
If I search farther from you what will I find
How many ways to live a day
I alone can only ask but never say
