Lyrics

I sat down to write you out, but the words never came
I shook my head to the beat of your steps along that empty hallway
Unhinged my jaw, thrust out my tongue for just one lick at the last word
But there was nothing left to say

The melody I know
It’s just your ghost crying out
The chords have stained my hands
Just like your lips on my mouth
And I have run a thousand miles with your whisper in my ear
Saying, “There’s nothing left here.”

So I will go and tear out every trace of you
Throw all my hopes to the wind
I’ll bust holes in the ship you’re so sure was sinking
And from the wreckage I, I will build something more

The keys had been my best friends ‘til you stood by my side
You stretched your hands along my hands ‘til our fingers intertwined
I turned my head into your chest, steadied my song to your breath
‘Til we were perfectly in time

And every page was white
Even the ruled lines disappeared
The harmonies faded into unison
And then cleared
And I convinced myself I could learn to love the silence
But then you left

So I will go and sing out every trace of you
Throw all my notes to the wind
I’ll let go of the words I’d been tightly holding
And from this emptiness, I will build something more

I burned your name into every candle inside of the chapel
I thought, “This is it.”
I took what you gave; when you’d stagnate, I’d go the rest of the way
I thought, “This is it.”
I took the blame, I bent without breaking, I took my remains to your doorstep
And wrapped them in tissue paper just like a gift
Now I must confess I’m happy that you never let me in

‘Cause I can go and tear out every trace of you
Hold my head high against the wind
I’ll take control of the ship you’re so sure was sinking
And from the wreck of this, I will build something
From this emptiness, I will build something
From the wreckage, I will build something more
