I couldn’t tell you just when it happened
An hour, a week or a second’s time
The glamor it faltered the fantasy stalled
For the moment it took for it all to die
All that we wanted was life’s sweet music
Somewhere a heart shares a common tune
Desperate dancing decaying our chances
Of finding the right one to listen to

How much sooner than you did I grasp it
How surprised are you going to be
Are you as frightened as I was to face it
Will you walk away crying from me

Light shone brightly on hopeful signals
For all that we wanted to seem so strong
But all of the sound had no point but to drown
Out the voice that was saying it all along

Maybe I should’ve known
Maybe you should have too
So I’m taking the blame
It’s the best I can do


from The Next Last Time, released September 18, 2012
