When two hearts break we are often left with two piles of emotions - the what was and the what could have been. Which pile you choose to cope with first, but for God's sake - cope.

Eventually, you'll find yourself with what will be & I'm still working there myself. It's real though. And we all deserve it.


My heart's been playing the saddest songs
Tired of writing everything about you
Sometimes love doesn't last through the rain
sometimes the lighting strikes and kills all the tulips down the drain

I've been searchin' in the woods
I've been searchin' in some hearts
I've been searchin' at the bottom of the bottles
but I can't find you

So this is the last time, this is the last song I'm gonna sing about you
Why don't you pack up get out of all this membrane
I don't need nothing left in my brain
Sing it with me now
you know it's fine to let it drown
Sing it with me now, Sing it with me now
You know it's fine to let it drown

I've been reading old entries in a journal I wrote in two years ago
when i was young with love and life and I know
something about the words I wrote
something about the things I said I wanted
still gonna want it

oh and you're out there floating around in this world
you're drowning with me, we're drowning somewhere different
I'm gonna find you and when I do
we're gonna love each other, we're gonna make two into one
and all this will be some fun

This will be a fun time
we can laugh about it
we can tell our kids remember when we thought life was over
