This morning I looked in the mirror
and I swore I’d stop thinking of you
My memories aren’t getting clearer
and your lies are not growing more true
Every moment today brings you nearer
and my promise is long overdue

I won’t think of you each waking minute
no matter how long minutes seem
But at night and the hours within it
how can I decide what I dream?

I know I’ve said this in the past
This time, I hope it’s true
I want these words to be the last
I ever waste on you

This morning I looked at the letter
you wrote me a few months ago
but your words can only serve to fetter
my heart with the numbness they sow
And my barren heart serves you much better
if it’s pain that you wish here to grow

Our friendship, it vanished so quickly
like smoke as it scatters above
But our memories linger so thickly
I wish they could die like our love

I know I’ve said this in the past
This time, I hope it’s true
I want these words to be the last
I ever waste on you

It’s not your fault you couldn’t love me
It’s not your fault you had to leave
It’s not my fault I couldn’t stop me
from loving you: I’m so naive
to think that I could ever trust me
I’m the only one I can deceive

And though I've said this in the past
Dear God, let it be true!
I want these words to be the last
I ever waste on you

This morning I looked inward, musing
on your love and it’s terrible cost
There are things I cannot recall losing
I just suddenly know that they’re lost
Why must this life be so confusing?
I'd feel cold if it weren't for the frost

I’m done searching for ways out of sorrow
but an emptiness pounds in my chest
If I keep putting off for tomorrow
I will never find moments to rest

I know I’ve said this in the past
This time, will it be true?
Will these words really be the last
I ever waste on you?
