lyrics

I know i never made it easier but you can't say i didn't try,
And i know i didn't always tell the truth but i never told you any lies,
I hope you know i'd change it all or at least i'd change the end,
Cos we all stood to lose the only thing that meant something.

And now i see why things never worked out,
And now it feels like there's a whole other story to tell,
I forgot my dreams for a moment back there,
Cos we got lost and i lost all hope.

I know i have it easy but you can't say i don't try,
I work my fingers to the bone for this cos i have to make it right.

And now i see the horizon coming into view,
And now it feels like we might make it to the end,
The reality is cruel but with no other choice to speak,
We shut out eyes tight and we grit out teeth.

I know how much you sacrificed i know you wanted it to work,
I understand why you had to walk away and i thank you for doing it first.

Cos i was gonna leave,
Throw it all away,
The efforts of all these years gone to waste,
What happened to the fight and the certainty of our youth?
It was nearly all lost to the fragility of the truth.

Now you know this won't be easy but at least you're gona try,
Now we know nothing can stop us now we know we've got it right,
The burden's turned to purpose and become less harrowing but we all stood to lose it all lose everything,
Yeh we all stood to lose the only thing that meant something to us.
