lyrics

Even after all our differences, forces draw us near and we're unable to simply forget. But maybe that's what real devotion is, you take your pedestal and pride and blindly throw them to the wind.

So let's just get married, we'll try to even out the sources of our guilt. It's too much to carry, the burden that comes with us leaving what we've built.

But you look your best at 3 AM, when you've had a chance to let me in. When your guard is down, and you're awake, but not enough to listen. Not now, but soon this will seem all too clear.

But for now we should take care of this, if it's left too long unspoken our attempts will go to waste. And we should wait 'til we make sense of this, but waiting's never been our strong suit so we'll meet up in a day.

But you look your best at 3 AM, when you've had a chance to let me in. When your guard is down, and you're awake, but not enough to listen. Not now, but soon this will seem all too clear.

Leaving you was hard to do, but I knew that I'd be kidding myself if I stuck around. And now it's on you 'cause you left me too, but if it's real, and this is true, then we can keep the love we've found.
