this was my foot on the gas
as the Puget Sound collapsed
this was my heart screaming wait
as i slammed onto the breaks
these are the faces on the street
of everyone you'd like to meet
that hide the voices in your head
of things you wish you could forget

this was my walk through central park
a bottle shielding me from my heart
all the struggles i could never see
had started growing and rotting in me
with all that i've done wrong
i hope you never hear this song
because i think i could have changed the paths of our lives
if i'd had the balls to act all that time ago
but what do i know?

i can't hang on to the past, i need humility
all i can do is try to clean my side of the street
i can't be her dark horse
and now i know why you couldn't be mine
all this pain had left me frozen in time

trains just rattle through
a park that you never knew
ships still come to dock
on that pier where you made me talk
It took some time for me to grow up
to know how to really love
i found someone who makes me laugh
i’m ready to leave this all in the past

these are my feet on the ground
because the Puget Sound is still around
and i'm not bound
to all this pain i've been carrying around
