Wow so this is--- heavier emotionally than I originally intended. You can hear in the vocal melody it was basically a leftover I wanna die, except I wanted to wrap up the breakup arch of the album with it so I gave it my all and I'm really happy with it. It was also nice to vent it all. ~reece


We were always such a beautiful duo

Without you by my side the world is full of woe

I write another letter and put away my pen

I can only hope for a chance to start again

In this lonely castle I learn things are only things

My only company is the raven’s when they sing

You were the one and now I know I will die alone

Though I still hope that one day you will call my phone


I guess we just have to learn to live with our regrets

Jaded by the memories Im sure you will forget

After time I have to accept the single fact

That deep down I know youre never coming back

Despite the fact I know you fucked him in your car

I still think of you when I stare up at the stars

Our kingdom could be rebuilt with you by my side

But the world that once was has long since died


If you come back there’s so much left to say

Although I’ve since realized we’ll never see that day

Once upon a time we were beautiful people

But now all I have are memories inside of my skull

Everyday I wake up and somehow leave my bed

Hearing the critics from the voices in my head

Im sorry for everything I only blame myself

Oh how I miss the memory box that sat on my shelf

Bridge (spoken “voice”)

I just hope your safe and living your best life

Even tho mine was cut up like a knife 

I will always love you and I will always care

Now I just have to get used to knowing youre not there

And if I only had one last thing to say

One last thing at all before you went away

I hope your safe I hope youre happy

If you come back or live without me

I just hope that you can once again find joy

Even if that means my world must be destroyed

Now I guess Im alone and thats just how Ill cope

But Ill still wait here for you living with a hope
