High Hopes

Restart like my pulse when you walk through the door.
As far as I can tell, It's none of my concern,
How you get to sleep at night.
When I was always right.
Don't make a sound,
Don't even whisper to me.
I felt so empty in your company.
I'm retracing my steps,
Feeling light in the head.
Wondering why I hadn't left instead.

I used to have high hopes but it hurt,
Now I know to only expect the worst.
Being a poor judge of intentions,
I always need the hard way to learn my lessons.
But I'll never let my guard down again.

As long as we stand I feel this weight on my chest,
Longing for reason to get out of my bed.
Make my way into the evening , not bury my head
I don't need to relive every single moment we spent

How do you sleep at night?
when at the worst of times you know I was right.
Meanwhile I'm lying awake,
wishing I could forget your face.

Wishing I could forget your face.

So here's to hoping time,
will clear my head.
You won't cross my mind,
Or leave me pacing again.
