You took the first step
and called yourself cured
and then reverted back to always feeling insecure
say something, she said to me
say anything before you leave
A lack of confidence
A scar on your mind
A faded memory of bathroom talks and leisure time

And I thought you knew
that this was only a test of your strength
that it was only your time that this takes
before things started changing

And now you radiate emotion when you're reminiscing
and you struggle like you're buried underground

As dust collects between your chapters
You feel your pages start to rip
I always knew that's what you meant
You'll never mend the trust you bent
It feels like I've wasted all of the time we've spent
Stop acting like you're innocent

You wish you could go back
and retake all of those photographs
we took when we were younger
And I wish I could go back too,
but I'd much rather take all of those
photographs without you

You're pulling your teeth
just to find some relief
from a headache you've had for days
And you're lost in your self
You're a book on the self
and your spine starts to wear away

Dust collects between your chapters
and you just want out
