lyrics

I’ve got my suitcase packed
And my ticket purchased
And there’s no going back
To the August of sophomore year
It’s the bottles I never finished
Conversations we still have
Self respect I was working towards
Integrity we both lacked
Before you close the door
Ask me if it’ll be okay
And it’s the afternoons on rooftops
A pair of jeans I can’t ignore
I won’t say what you wanna hear,
But what I haven’t said before
And you’ll say
“I never meant to get so involved”
And the words don’t hurt as much
As knowing I made you cry
“I never meant to get so involved”
Before you walk away
Can we at least say our goodbye?
“I never meant to get so involved”
Are we a symptom of something bigger?
A story whose chapters are already told
A lie snowballing towards irrelevance
Two lives putting each other on hold
We’re a magnificent accident
And I refuse to be stagnant
We’re a magnificent accident
And I refuse to be stagnant
Well it’s the late nights on the weekends
When you’d call me from your car
Too high to even think,
But drunk enough to let it get this far
“Remember all those times we used to laugh?”
Sorry, now’s not the time to start grasping at straws
“Remember all those times we used to laugh?”
And if I hang up right now,
Will you understand I’m gone?
“I miss all those times we used to laugh”
Are we a symptom of something bigger?
A story whose chapters are already told
A lie snowballing towards irrelevance
Two lives putting each other on hold
We’re a magnificent accident
And I refuse to be stagnant
We’re a magnificent accident
And I refuse to be stagnant
Well it’s a different kind of death
Where your world and theirs no longer intersect
Well it’s a different kind of death
Where your world and theirs no longer intersect
Will you remember me as I was?
(We’re a magnificent accident)
And I’ll forget you as you are
(And I refuse to be stagnant)
Will you remember me as I was?
(We’re a magnificent accident)
And I’ll forget you as you are
(And I refuse to be stagnant)
