lyrics

Lately I've been feeling out of my comfort zone.
Whenever I strayed too far, you'd always guide be back home.
But now when I reach out, I'm answered only by a ghost.
I've never felt so alone.

I know the distance is draining, and we're both changing.
But through it all I'll always say the same thing.

When it's all said and done, don't make this harder than it should be, I'll already be gone.
I'd rather be in a box on your shelf, than be a trophy on the mantle place for anyone else.

And I'll just be collecting dust.
And so I'll do what I must.
I swear, I'll try not to waste all of your precious space, and turn to rust.

I feel myself being pushed away by your defenses, the tensions are what keep me at bay.
I'm not ready to put our time in the archives of my mind.
I can't let us get that way.

I know the distance is draining, and we're both changing.
But through it all I'll always say the same thing.

When it's all said and done, don't make this harder than it should be, I'll already be gone.
I'd rather be in a box on your shelf, than be a trophy on the mantle place for anyone else.

So remember why I drive down the 95.
Because you're the reason why I'm still alive.


When it's all said and done, don't make this harder than it should be, I'll already be gone.
I'd rather be in a box on your shelf, than be a trophy on the mantle place for anyone else.
