lyrics

Open your textbooks there we are
Addicted to the highs and lows
Should have seen it sooner
But we never thought it’d go this far
That’s what we said
Now whether that was true…

What no body tells you when you
Give your heart to someone
Is you don’t get to take it back

And the love’s not dying down
It’s just getting colder
And I’m not moving on
I’m just growing older
And I can’t speak for you
But I can speak for me
And baby, I think I’m just gonna love you

You and me, we painted this town red
But now you’re gone it’s up to me
To clean it with a toothbrush
And I wanna put this thing to bed
But when I see those empty sheets
I just think “that’s where she was”

And all my lovers tell me
That it’s cold in your shadow
And I wish I could convince them
That they don’t have to be you
Cos we were far from healthy, we were not an aspiration
And I’d say I never loved you, if I thought that it was true

I burn for you

And the fire doesn’t burn quite as bright
but it still burns, it still burns
Once a bonfire now a pilot light
The world still turns, the world still turns

And the love’s not dying down
It’s just getting colder
And I’m not moving on
I’m just growing older
And I can’t speak for you
But I can speak for me
And baby, baby, baby
I think I’m just gonna love you

And the love’s not dying down
It’s just getting colder
And I’m not moving on
I’m just growing older
And I can’t speak for you
But I can speak for me
And baby, I think I’m just gonna love you
Baby, I think I’m just gonna love you
