about

One of the songs I wrote last summer. Almost abandoned it but I changed what I didn't like about it and now it's rad. Nick Mos helped me come up with the lead guitar part melody, while Nick Spears came up with the panned arpeggiated synth melody, or something similar.

lyrics

I wanted you to wait for me
But you couldn't be asked to stay
There's no words I can say to change what happened
It's all gone wrong and may never be the same
It will never be the same

Lift the weight from your shoulders
Cause it's not a secret anymore

(I am the one who is always left out in your plans)

There's no way to announce your departure
Now we know who's better at playing pretend
No way of knowing if I'll ever again see you like this
Already abandoned before the end.

Lift the weight from your shoulders
Cause it's not a secret anymore
Don't hold on to it, just loosen your grasp

Wind blowing, the tide showing
Misdirection at every turn
The waves crashing, your blade clashing
The bruised hearts of the spurned
(I can't remember the last time you said something genuine to me)
Laughing, madly
(I am discovering that you weren't quality company)
At your lit up silver screen
(I can't remember the last time you said something genuine to me)
Can't wake up from the never ending dream
(I am discovering that you weren't quality company)

Lift the weight from your shoulders
Cause it's not a secret anymore
Don't hold on to it, it's out of your control
And it's not a secret anymore

Anymore
(Goodbye)
