She said it was over, and it took me six months to realize everything she said was true and it wasn't worth wasting time thinking about what we had or didn't. It just was what it was. -Wil


And after all the things we’ve said,
I’ve turned to hear you out instead.
And after everything you said,
I’ve learned to rid you from my
Head, and I’ll just deal with it.
Yeah, I’ll just deal with this.

And every night, it starts to get darker,
And with it comes your newfound distance.
And all my friends are telling me it’s over.
They’re quoting these songs that we both once loved.

I can’t even close my eyes.
And I know,
It’s so hard to sleep at night.
