Lyrics

The ruts in the gravel
They get deeper every day
Spinning your wheels around and around
You ain’t ever gonna get away
When your targets are all gone
You’ll have no place to point your aim
I’m leaving you with the empty shells
Of your games and the shame and the blame

The goodbye I have said
Way too many times
All the little ways I let you cross
Too many forbidden lines
Don’t care for your sorry words
Or the hills you’re left to climb
Nothing left to you and me
But the wind blowing through the chimes

No scars on my back
No bruises on my face
The wounds you inflict on me
Well, they were never meant to leave a trace
The lies I told myself
Secret deals I always made
Left me nothing but a love that fades
In the shade of your masquerade

The goodbye I have said
Way too many times
All the little ways I let you cross
Too many forbidden lines
Don’t care for your sorry words
Or the hills you’re left to climb
Nothing left to you and me
But the wind blowing through the chimes

I’m leaving you, I’m leaving this
Mess of a life and the jagged words
That wait behind your kiss
I’m leaving this empty promise of bliss
Ain’t one damn thing here
I’m gonna miss

You placed your lips on mine
Then you played upon my fears
Preyed on my unbridled heart
Then you cried those crocodile tears
Had me where you wanted
Tortured by your gaze
I’m torching it all and I’m leaving behind
The betrayal in the haze of the blaze

The goodbye I have said
Way too many times
All the little ways I let you cross
Too many forbidden lines
Don’t care for your sorry words
Or the hills you’re left to climb
Nothing left to you and me
But the wind blowing through the chimes
