about

this was the first brighter shades song, wrote it alone at the piano at an all time low. I heard the ending in my head from day one, getting there was a different story altogether

-trevor

lyrics

I couldn't face how your head got replaced
'til I read the notes
'cause the light of your face was a beautiful place
before I found out
that all the time I spent wasn't worth much in the end,
there's so many places and faces I could have touched by now

you didn't ask me if I'd mind if you gave up
you didn't take the time to add the figures up
I was the sum of all that you loved,
you can multiply the times I was true and you lied,
but I know, I was always alone

If I could take the time to explain to you both why
I could never live with the mess you've made
then I would let you know,
I was ready to let go before I knew...

you didn't ask me if I'd mind if you gave up
you didn't take the time to add the figures up
I was the sum of all that you loved,
you can multiply the times I was true and you lied,
but I know, that you'll always be alone

you would have always been the one who got away
but now you remind me of and unwanted, unsightly stain
'cause i've been so ashamed
and you can't stand to stay
away(ke)

ask me if I'd mind if you gave up
take the time to add the figures up
I was a face too easily replaced
in your bed, all that space was too much for friends to waste
but I know,
I'm not the one who's alone
