over time you'll see exactly what you need
and over time you will be glad we stopped it here
before we needed a bigger living room to breathe
for what it's worth i tried to do this earlier
for what it's worth i tried to do without the hurt
before we cared this deeply

and for a while
the sunlight fades and you'll forget to smile.
for a year
you won't see the point in coming here
but give it time
and give it space.
you'll be back, and you will rock the place.

i gave to you what i could never give myself
i held you up and i refused to ask for help
we were broken and i could not just let it go
we understand and so we think that makes us strong
but now i know what i suspected all along
we spiral around, and

never in control
accretion disc encircling the black hole
so many tears
one for every thing we thought we'd share
but give it time
and give it space
you'll be back, and you will rock the place.

so much i wanted to do
adventures of sun and moon
i had to break my own heart
to save you
i’m sorry.
i’m so sorry.

and things were said as i was walking out the door
i hope you realize that i could not love you more
my whole life is better because it included you
i gave you up because i could not keep you down
we’ve both made strides to turn our lives around
i hope you see that i needed you more than
i could say
the sun will set and rise another day
it tears us up
and it will seem like years won’t be enough
but give it time,
and give it space
you’ll be back and you will rock the place
