​When To Quit

This song is by Ari Hest and appears on the album The Break-In (2007).

Here in the dark, I'm getting my fill
My climb back up appears one menacing hill
Don't know how I'll muster up
The will to try

Unwrapped the boxes cradling our love past
Sounded the foghorn and I lowered the mast
The waves we struck were charging in too fast
For us, for me, is this meant to be?

I don't want to break your heart
Any more than it's been broken
It was enough for you the veil I knit
But I didn't know when to quit

Innocent images of you I can't waste
They hold tight to me as an endless embrace
My loved ones tell me that time will erase
But I've hurt you and I'm so afraid

I don't want to break your heart
Any more than it's been broken
It was enough for you the veil I knit
But I didn't know when to quit

I'll think of you and smile
But it's gonna take a while
'Cause I'm still not convinced
That you're not meant for me
Oh are you meant for me?

Here in the dark, I'm getting my fill
My climb back up appears one menacing hill
Don't think this feeling will vanish until
I don't know when, I don't know when
