come clean lyrics – trophy eyes

Loading...

the image of you
the thought burns right through
a flaw in an otherwise perfect crime

it’s funny how
the things i care about
are damaged
but the unimportant things are fine

14 herbert street
two thousand and ten
i was eighteen
i couldn’t keep my f-cking story straight

i pushed you all away
but the street lights on mayne
they still flicker
even though we’re never there to see

i always wanted to call
but i had nothing to say
and you seemed better off
since you moved away
i can’t say i don’t miss the company
of such a better example
of me

i know i had you all concerned
but i’ve changed now
i’m better
and i got just what i deserved
persistence
respect is a process

torn between
another bullsh-t apology
or blaming everything i said
on a broken self-esteem
dodge the burden
evade the blame
or suck it up and just come clean

it’ll never be the same again
and all i have to thank is me
is there anything i can say
to bring back the old days

i know i had you all concerned
but i’ve changed now
i’m better
and i got just what i deserved
persistence
respect is a process

i’ve been obsessing over bridges burned
though it’s over it lingers
so tell the others when it works for you
i miss you
and life’s a little longer now
