lyrics

I lost it,
All that I have ever known is getting to me.
I've got land on an island in the Atlantic,
I've just got to go.
Got to leave home.
Got to leave home.
Gotta get out of here.

Mom'll cry,
All my works of status will be falling apart.
When I go,
All the things reminding me of you will be gone,
And I'll have won.
I'll have won.
It's me vs. your memory.

Sorry that I said that we'd hang out.
I have been a lot of things,
But strong is not what I'm about.
I'll pretend we've never met when I am far away,
When I won't have you there to remind me.

I was young,
You were a beacon of all that I could ever become.
So I played
And lost the game of love,
And I was so dumb.
But oh, I tried.
Oh god, I tried.
And you still won.

Sorry that I said that we'd hang out.
I have been a lot of things,
But strong is not what I'm about.
I'll pretend we've never met when I am far away,
When I won't have you there to remind me.
