i swear i saw you wither away

One mistake, and your face is facing away

And I'm stuck pretending this time never happened

I called your name

But I swear I saw you wither away

The sky had looked so bright

But my conscience wouldn't let me look past black and white

My conscience wouldn't let me picture you there

Just like the rest of them

All drowned out and black and white

All alone, just like I knew you were

It's the crossroads that had me believe that I keep having to look back

It's the crossroads that had me believe that you were part of the reason why

I could live life with open eyes

I can't let myself get caught in between

These past few months, rotting days on repeat

I've been trying not to grit my teeth

But the thought of a year just reminds me that you're leaving
