The World Was Quiet

This song is by Dayseeker and appears on the album Origin (2015).

It's been a long time coming
The consequence of why my pride got the best of me
Now it's been 2 years and we still don't speak

When we first met, I knew even then that you were different
I felt the earth stand still any time you were here
But the cheating, the lying
The act of denying it doesn't always end up here
Here with nothing and you're so far from me

I held that burden on top of my shoulders
With every day, not a single word
And all I said seemed to fall on deaf ears
If our bodies are still so cold
Then why do you beg and plead for me to never let go?

We sleep on a bed of broken glass
A place to rest but it still cuts through your skin
Tell me where we stand when you're standing beside him
Goodbye again for the last time

I used to see that flicker of light off
In the distance but it always burns out
Do your eyes see that flicker of light?
Because all I see is pitch black
You and I, we sleep on a bed of broken glass
Every photograph to depict how perfect your life is
That should be me in those captured fragments of your memory

Our love was a sinking ship bound to fail from the day we met
You accept the love that you think you deserve
So you'll be miserable with him
And I'll still be waiting here
We watched that city burn bright
The sky filled with embers and your hand in mine
How I wish you would suddenly appear
The world was so quiet when you were here
