lyrics

I learned to fly just to meet you,
You're always up there in the clouds,
But I got caught up with other things,
Forgot to wax my weary wings,
And I collapsed into the ground.

I learned a language just to speak to you,
And I grew accustomed to the sound,
But now I'm talking to myself,
As if I don't need no one else,
I kinda wish you'd stick around.

But when the drawing of your breath,
Prepares the words you cannot say,
When you know it isn't true love,
You might as well walk away,
But there's a knowing in your eyes,
That makes me ride the bus today,
What doesn't kill you makes you stronger,
At least that's what they say.

And when all the words you speak,
Seem to sound a bit cliché,
You got me back and now we're even,
You might as well walk away,
But there's a knowing in your eyes,
That makes me ride the bus today,
What doesn't kill you makes you stronger,
At least that's what they say.
