All I can ever be to you is a darkness that we knew
And this regret I got accustomed to
Once it was so right 
When we were at our height  Waiting for you in the hotel at night 
I knew I hadn't met my match 
But every moment we could snatch
I don't know why I got so attached 
It's my responsibility 
You don't owe nothing to me
But to walk away, I have no capacity 

He walks away
The sun goes down
He takes the day, but I'm grown 
And in your way
In this blue shade 
My tears dry on their own

I don't understand 
Why do I stress the man
When there's so many bigger things at hand?
We could've never had it all
We had to hit a wall
So this is inevitable withdrawal
Even if I stop wanting you
And perspective pushes through 
I'll be some next man's other woman soon
I cannot play my self again 
I should just be my own best friend 
Not fuck my self in the head with stupid men

He walks away
The sun goes down
He takes the day, but I'm grown 
And in your way
In this blue shade 
My tears dry on their own

So we are history 
Your shadow covers me
The sky above ablaze

He walks away
The sun goes down
He takes the day, but I'm grown 
And in your way
In this blue shade 
My tears dry on their own

I wish I could sing no regrets 
And no emotional debt
'Cause as we kissed goodbye, the sun sets
So we are history 
Your shadow covers me
The sky above ablaze
That only lovers see

He walks away
The sun goes down
He takes the day, but I'm grown 
And in your way
My blue shade 
My tears dry on their own

Whoa, he walks away
The sun goes down
He takes the day, but I'm grown 
And in your way
My deep shade 
My tears dry on their own

He walks away
The sun goes down
He takes the day, but I'm grown 
And in your way
My deep shade 
My tears dry
